I bought this tractor used but with just 47 hours on it. Since then, I have gone through 2 batteries, I'm on the third. Sometimes I go as much as 2 months without using it so that could be a big part of the battery problems. If I used it every other day, I wonder what the story would be on the battery.
The glow plugs have had problems from the start. They were on constantly at one point, other times they wouldn't work at all. I finally had a shop wire them to a manual switch which I just hold in for ten seconds and then start it. It has always started well when everything is working, very hard to start without glow plugs.
With the front wheel assist, this thing pulls like a Cat. I have been in greasy mud to the axles and it walks right out. The hydraulics are a bit slow but not annoyingly so. The rubber boot on the loader hyd. lever disintegrated and I have yet to make the box blade work successfully to level ground but other than that, not much to complain about with this little tractor.
I traveled 9 hours to pick it up and then found out my local dealer closed a week after I bought it.
