I purchased this tractor mostly for snow removal, but it has performed beautifully for excavation work and site leveling for building projects as well. I have been pleased with its performance so far.
A couple of dislikes: I have the hydro static drive and no cruise control. This should be standard equipment with hydro.
Also, I have separate braking control, but with hydro, you would have to have another right leg to actually use! Whoever designed this was not thinking right that day.
The only issue I have had is (I think anyway) the neutral safety switch that does not allow it to be started in gear seems to be malfunctioning occasionally. Now and again, it won't start unless I wiggle the gear range selector a little until it will start.
I will probably use it for logging purposes as time goes. It has done everything I have asked of it to now.
