5740 Montana Posted by Rich on 03/18/2010

When my tractor arrived the only issue it had was that the tach was inoperative. After doing some troubleshooting I discovered the cable was not connected. I am not a heavy tractor user but this tractor does everything I need it to do compared to what I used in the past. I mainly move large round bales of hay and mow 3-4 times a year. The tractor has a comfortable platform with plenty of room and climbing up and down is easy on the LH side. I have never experienced a lack of power whether I am moving hay or using the FEL. The only thing that I am dis-satisfied with is how hard the PTO snaps on when the switch is engaged. I have to replace several shear pins just to get my mowing complete because they snap as soon as I engage the PTO. There should have been some sort of ramp up engagement for the PTO.
