Montana Review Posted by Mark Naglreiter on 11/08/2012

- Overall performance is okay.
- Shifting both shuttle and transmission is poor. Gravely.
- Company out of business.
- Mitsubishi diesel is excellent.
- Hydraulics are excellent. No leaks.
- Has never failed to start and has original battery.
- Bucket dumps extremely slow.
- Has only 500 hours so not really tested time wise.
- Has many special parts that are not handled by local John Deere dealer.

Dollar wise if I were to buy another tractor, I'd buy a John Deere. Service by company, there is none period. I'd advise anybody to buy an old name such as John Deere.

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Fortunately It's been a good tractor or I'd be at a great loss because of no company support. Cons: Poor shifting. Gravely, not smooth. If used daily by a professional farmer, I'm sure the shifting mechanism would fail. Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 Acres Location: United States Idaho I also considered buying:
