Have had this tractor for about a year and am still liking it. It does more than I expected from a small tractor. It lacks individual brakes and a decent PTO clutch. I think all these little tractors except Bobcat use the same transaxle made by someone else so the clutch problem is not the fault of the tractor name brand. I was told this tractor is actually built by Simplicity for Massey(?).
These aren't cheap to buy and a bigger size tractor is more for the money but many of us need the smaller size for our use. This replaced a 38 hp Oliver and a 20 hp John Deere lawn tractor and does the job of both except for the heavy lift part of the Oliver loader which is to be expected and the handiness of the smaller tractor outweighs that small loss by far. Have had no bad disappointments with this tractor.
