Super Handy Tractor Posted by TractorBoy on 08/25/2012

As its third owner, I bought this tractor with 40 hours on the clock. Over nine years it was used for about another 830 hours.

It worked great at everything asked of it. Sure, it could use more lifting capacity and power. But those features are available in larger tractors for more money.

The least appreciated aspect was the effect the short wheel base had on batteries. The jarring ride over bumpy terrain caused acid to spill and that caused corrosion on the battery tray and hardware, and also ate on the paint at the front end of the tractor. Typical batteries also don't respond well to G shocks. So after replacing the lead acid battery a couple times, an Optima sealed battery was installed. No more acid spilled and the battery was still doing fine a couple years later when the tractor was sold.

And the tractor held value very well.
