Love the tractor, but time to move on. Posted by ASI on 01/10/2011

We bought this tractor in '04. I can't even say how many hours are on it 'cause the gauge is broken. All in all this has been a great running tractor. We use it heavily in our commercial landscaping business.

The brush claw attachment for the front end loader is its most valuable asset. We hardly ever take it off. Our only problem is that we use it like a skid steer for very heavy use. It has held up for us with many repairs to the frame and has proven to be quite a work horse. We just need something bigger.

For those of you who want a great tractor for light to moderate farm use, this would be a great tractor. If you want something to work out in the field everyday, you should probably look at something a little bigger.
