I had a Case tractor 448 and that was a great tractor to cut my lawn with, but after a few years I wanted something newer and it would have to have a front end loader on it. I checked out Deere, MF and Club but found that this fit my budget and fit my needs.
It hasn't let me down and I have done some heavy work with it. It could use a little more power. I'm sorry they stopped making them but still would go with the New Holland again.
