TYM 420 Posted by mitya on 07/19/2014

I purchased tractor from a dealer who had been using it for mowing/spraying around the dealership. It was sold as a "demonstrator" with 20 hours on it, but with full warranty.

The tractor is rated at 42 hp, is 4WD, has 3 forward gears with low, med, high range for 9 forward and 3 reverse speeds, category 1 3-pt. hitch and live PTO, has a front loader with quick disconnect of the bucket, and it has ROPS.

It has the industrial type tires and I had the rear tires filled and moved to as wide a stance as possible. The work space is very roomy and very well arranged. The tractor is heavier than any of the others I looked at. Apparently the model has been discontinued.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the tractor. I have put 30 hours on it, mostly mowing with a 5' "Bush Hog"-type mower. I did find a couple loose bolts/nuts when I checked at about 40 hours, but nothing critical.

I mow about 6 to 8 acres of very rocky and steep terrain. The tractor has performed better than my expectations. It handles the bush hog with no problems even though I did need to engage the differential lock a few times on the steepest part of my property. I do not recall the capacity of the FEL, but I have used it to dig out and move several full buckets of large rocks with no problems.
