2007 Montana 3040 Posted by Pat Franzen on 01/06/2012

I bought the tractor used with only 30 hours on it. I don't use it much but have recurring problems with the battery charge, it's always dead. This could be because I don't start it often.

The only problem I've had is the glow plug timer system. The relay went out twice and then I ended up with a direct drain (current going to plugs the whole time, running or not. I finally installed a manual push-to-connect switch and I just hold it in 10 seconds before starting.

Other than this issue, I've had no problems. It pulls very well and has crawled out of some incredible mud with the front wheel assist. It turns very sharp, small radius.
