13 Months and 600 hrs. behind us Posted by Jack on 06/29/2010

This tractor was purchased to work in a commercial hay operation. It drives a New Holland 617 Disk Mower and New Holland 565 Square Baler among other things. Outfitted with a deluxe cab and loader it should be capable of doing almost anything on a small ranch or farm of up to 200 acres. Our experience has not been perfect. Despite dealing with a major dealer the tractor was nearly unusable when delivered due to its very severe clutching. Forward and reverse was a bone jolting experience that caused me to break off the (plastic) throttle handle to keep from banging my head on the cab ceiling (again). After adjustment by the dealer it is better but still aggravating reminder that I should have looked at a green one. Other problems have included incomplete assembly (electrical), failure of the three point hydraulic valve, overheating when under full load, a smaller than required air filter that requires replacement (of cleaning) every 10 hours of use. Overall, this tractor is built on a compact frame which I would never buy again - it is light for the duty we have for it and will jolt your breakfast out of you before lunch as it bumps and skips across the hay field.
