Re: Be very careful if you are considering a Mahindra

I bought the Kioti brand new. I bought the Mahindra 5035 brand new. I have put less than 60 hours on it, on the meter since I bought it in late 2012 or early 2013. I have used the tractor for eight hours straight one day and it added less than an hour to the meter.

THIS TRACTOR, MY MAHINDRA 5035 I BOUGHT NEW. N E W!!!!!!!

So you have let this tractor sit (bought it in 12-13) . . . your answer might be right there.

Re: Be very careful if you are considering a Mahindra

So now with 4 or more active threads you are starting to get responses scattered all over TBN.

THATS WHY MULTIPLE POSTING IS FOOLISH!

Nothing you do, say or post will stop buyers from buying Mahindra tractors.

You can also try Northern Diesel Controls in Sterling Heights, Mich. They rebuilt the injector pump and injectors on my track loader and did a great job.

Don't know why the OP would only put that many hours on a tractor . . . :confused3:

Re: You need to be very careful if you are considering a Mahindra

Bottom line is poor quality fuel in the tank is not the manufacturers fault or responsibility. Contamination, especially in the form of algae can and will get past filters and ruin fuel system components. 60 hours of run time in 7 years is a recipe for disaster and that is exactly what you have.
Is there not a fuel injection shop in your area that can repair the pump and rebuild the injectors? Very, very few dealers of any brand do this specialized work. Criticizing your dealer for not being equipped to make repairs to injection pumps and injectors is an unfair and uninformed criticism.

Great opinion. However, my Kubota dealer can do it. My Kioti ran for 12+ years and it only had 160 hours on it. But, thanks for your kind thoughts.

Re: You need to be very careful if you are considering a Mahindra

Why do you even own a tractor if you dont use it?
