Whilst I love this little tractor it has had its problems and that is the reason behind my review.

When relatively new the Glow plug timer kept staying on (or coming on) and flattening the battery until it was replaced under warranty. It has had other wiring problems, specifically headlights and one blinker not working.

The headlights just would not work even though the switch checked okay, the relay checked okay and the wiring checked out. I had to fit a new Headlight relay and power it direct from battery power to enable the headlights to work. The blinker still won't go.

The FEL remote control lever fell apart when relatively new and had to have the valve control repaired. Warranty fixed this. The gear change can be a real pig at times and takes a bit of manipulating to get it right. Dealer said it was OK and couldn't fix it. Sometimes you think it is OK and it jumps out of gear a minute later. Once it is in gear properly it stays there.

My knee keeps hitting the key and switching it off. It is in a stupid stupid place.
