McCormick X1.35
Hi all just bought an X1.35. Seemed to be lot of tractor for the money compared to the orange and green options with a similar weight and FEL lifting capacity. From what I understand this is the same basic tractor as the Branson 3520R, both made by Kukje. McCormick puts a different FEL on it though.
At any rate I've only had it out once to get the hang of how to use the FEL and the box blade.
I've attached a couple photos from delivery day.

How do you like it so far? Considering one for myself.

Ditto. He must be busy either running the wheels off or fixing it as there have been no updates LOL. B.

I have about 50 hours on mine. I really wanted an x1-45 but dealer didn't have one and tried to talk me into a 35. That upset me but the more I looked, they are basically the same tractor minus the hp. I had a 42hp MF 135 gas. Let me tell you, I am amazed at the power of this tractor compared to my 42hp. I recently borrowed a friends MF 250 with 3 cyl diesel to pull a 7' grain drill since his had hydraulics to lift drill. They told me I needed 50 hp. His tractor pulled it (2wd only) but struggled mightily. So hear I buy a 35 hp and rent the same drill. I did not tell them what I was going to pull it with for fear they would tell me not to do it. My 35 hp tractor pulled it with ease and in 4 wd. It did not even struggle as my friends 43 hp did. I am glad I bought the 35 hp and saved a few thousand on the 45 hp.
