Changing the gear speed with the left hand lever is sometime difficult. Also changing from 2 wheel to 4 wheel drive. Other than those two items, the tractor has performed very well.
I really like the safety features, i.e. come off the seat and the tractor turns off; the roll bar, hydro-static drive (when your foot comes off the pedal, the tractor stops). My grandfather was killed when his tractor rolled on him. Safety is important.
