"I purchased this tractor from a dealer in Michigan. The tractor was used in the orchards for approx. 8 years. The tractor is about 80 PTO hp. I mounted a FEL from Quickie on it. I've used it to cut hay, load 4x5 round bales, rake and finish mowing. Cab is o.k. for me but could be cramped for some. Speed is 40kph/24mph but I've went as fast as 26 mph.
When I purchased it, it had quirky problem with rear lift arms. It took me 6 months to get it corrected. Hydraulic valve was messed up. Tractor has a lot of bells and whistles which can be nice but also can cause problem.
Currently having problems with temps on hydraulics which automatically restricts hydraulic flow to lift arms and SCV's. Also had problem with fuel gauge, 4WD sensor, air conditioning. But if everything is working, it can be a fun tractor to operate.
Is fast which is main reason I bought it as I have to travel a fair amount on road. Is also air cooled so no radiator/coolant/water pump to mess with. This enables higher horsepower.
Also, AGCO service via their e-mail is the worst. You cannot talk to someone to get technical help. You have to go through dealer service and then they e-mail the experts. A lot of back and forth with no solutions."
