Still happy with tractor. Had a front axle seal replaced under warranty. The seal is about a half inch thick with multiple lips and was not leaking around axle itself. Leak was around where the seal presses into case from factory.
Looks like they use a type of RTV sealant and there was a small gap allowing fluid out. Dealer replaced with new seal no questions asked. Also had the finicky switch for the lights replaced no questions asked. New switch is flawless.
Tractor starts hard in cold temps. I installed an inline hose heater and its starts perfect after 20 min plugged in.
