I have owned a Ford (NH) , compact for 20+ years, with flawless performance
I bought the 4060, after extensive research, with 4wd, EHSS transmission, 270TL FEL and R4 Tires.
and a Woods Brush Bull.
I have been using it to clear very heavy brush, mow previously unmowed swamp, loader work moving clay, gravel and dirt.
The EHSS is a jewel! There is an "Inching pedal" rather than a clutch, which takes a little getting used to. Once you realize it operates hydraulics, not a disc and pressure plate, you can use it properly....
The dealer (IG Hall- Janesville, WI) answered my endless questions and actually let me operate a machine on a local farm, before I bought anything!
After 60+ hrs, I can say, it has lots of power, reasonable fuel consumption, and has performed every task I asked, without so much as a whimper.
Anything the mower will push over, it will shred to mulch. This machine has tons of power!
What more can I ask?
The machine has satisfied or exceeded even my high expectations.
