This tractor had many more standard features than most other tractors I looked at when I purchased it back in Feb. 2005. The Mitsubishi 4 cyl diesel engine is excellent and with 4 cylinders, it too was a great standard feature that most other tractors couldn't compete with.
The weakness in my Montana 5740C tractor was the hard plastic fuel tank and Montana itself has admitted that the tank design was flawed. In my case, after repairing it twice, I took the hard plastic tank off and had a local welder make me a custom tank to the exact dimensions of the hard plastic one, so now I've eliminated that problem completely.
Otherwise, it has been an excellent tractor with little to no problems. Price wise, it was $10,000.00 less that one of the name brands at the time, equipped the same, making it in my opinion, an excellent value.
