As Dependable as a Sledgehammer! Posted by Bill Miller on 05/30/2013

As a veteran, farm boy, sailor I learned to always maintain my equipment. This tractor amazed me! with new AG tires it can't get enough traction to slow down the motor, just lifts the front end. I drag a 72" finish mower, but would trade it for a smaller one as it is too heavy for this tractor. I use a 4 ft. brush hog, 4' box blade, post hole digger, and middle buster plow, plenty of power for them.

Good diesel oil, clean fuel, and checking fluids have given me 7 yrs. of trouble free use. Parts are great at Hoye Tractor, great prices and same day shipping too. I've never had to add oil, change it every fall. They offer great support also.
