"Yanmar engine is tough to beat. Have some light issues, will see how difficult that is to fix. My main issue so far is getting parts/service. Branson dealers in my area aren't the biggest of help probably due to the fact they don't see many of these anymore."

"The first thing I noticed when I first saw this tractor was how heavy the frame and axle housing was. I live in a very rocky high desert foothill area. I was looking for a compact tractor which had the capacity to dig out juniper tree roots.
This tractor has done all that I have asked of it. I have had it for 7 years and the only repairs that I have had to do is replace the plastic power steering reservoir and the front loader hydraulic hoses.
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Very sturdy, easy to operate, & holds up well to heavy work.Cons: Plastic power steering oil tank & the engine oil dipstick is hard to get to with front loader attached.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA CAI also considered buying: John Deere 3032E REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
