Don't Buy Chinese Tractors Posted by Ken Hughes on 08/09/2012

Low priced machine. Would not consider purchasing this make in the future. Would pay extra and buy Korean or Japanese. Bit like having a WWII Jeep compared to 2012 Jeep.

Several instruments failed in first couple of weeks - fuel gauge, water temperature. Handbrake is virtually non-existent and extremely difficult to use. Hydraulic hoses poor quality and steering is very sloppy.

Support from dealer was very poor especially on the flail mower that was also a Chinese copy of a USA model but they did not copy it very well and the mower never worked properly. Dealer refused to take any responsibility other than replace the cutters which was not the problem.
