Montana 5740 Posted by MBR MONTANA on 03/31/2011

I purchased this 5740 mainly for snowblowing - otherwise a smaller/4wd without a cab would have been my choice. I am very impressed with the performance overall. I did however have clutch and synchronizer problems around 250 hrs.

I am wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem. I have been using tractors for 40 years and clutch/sync problems have not been historically a problem. My last tractors were a Ford 3000 and Zetor 5340
