This is my second tractor. The first one was a Farmpro tractor that was okay, but shifting gears got old fast with the work I needed to do. I found this T1520 by dumb luck at a local dealer. The dealer wanted to move this left-over off his lot and gave me a good deal.
The tractor is easy to operate and very powerful! I use it mostly to grade my driveway, spread topsoil, move firewood, brush hog, and move stone. It does it all and always starts up with the first twist of the key.
I considered other sub-compact tractors, but in researching over the internet, this one seems to be best with customer satisfaction and least with problems reported.
