Runs very reliably, some difficulty starting in winter as it is stored in an unheated space. Had some problems with shifting, pins broke in the shifter forks in the transmission. They were a standard taper pin and were not too difficult to replace. Had a piece of white plastic (I believe from the cap of the oil bottles when I changed the hydraulic fluid) hang up in the relief valve, had to disassemble to clean, other than that it has performed well.
Came with a tiller that close couples to the back of the tractor and it works very well. My son broke the PTO shaft (by not removing the short drive shaft and backing into a brush pile, PTO turning). Found a shaft in CA and replaced it.
