She Does a Lot Posted by WindyJoe on 03/20/2013

I originally bought this tractor to maintain a 300 ft. driveway on a 3-acre property. Two years later, I am managing a woodlot on a 144-acre property. I would've bought a bigger tractor for the current property, but she had done most of what I have asked her to do. She accepted a 5-ft brush cutter and a timber winch. Loading the tires made a huge difference in her performance.

My biggest problem was that driving her through a 12-acre field while mowing allowed grass to wind up so tightly around her drive shaft that it got inside the transmission (ruining the seal) and plugging the filter, resulting in a 2-month search for a seal and a $2000 repair bill.

Service in my area my been horrible. It took my dealer 2-months to find a $12 replacement seal for the tractor.

Design-wise, the location of the oil filter on the bottom of the tractor makes it easy to access, but exposes it to potential damage, especially given the relatively low ground clearance. I drive it in the woods reluctantly, for fear of hitting a stump and trading the oil filter off.
