"I needed an inexpensive tractor to mow and maintain my driveway. Since then I've purchased a plow, tiller, wood splitter and post hole drill. The most valuable feature is the front-end loader.
Most of the time the tractor sits. In the spring I plow and till the garden (1 or 2 days). In the summer I mow (2 times a month). In the winter I haul and split wood. I really don't use it much at all but when I do it really saves me work.
There are a few items that need repair like the parking brake. Most parts items can be ordered online but little things like hood latches are not available. Almost none of the instrument panel gauges work but I can't blame the tractor but probably the previous owners."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Easy on fuel. Cons: It's weak for pulling a 2 bottom plow. In the thick clay of Kentucky it bogs down and stops the tractor.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA KYI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I got my 50 horse, 4 wheel drive Long back from my son to serve it out and use at my home for a short time. After replacing all filters and oils, it had a problem with the hydra systems!
After trying everything could think of & nothing helped, I replaced the hydra filter again with another new filter & every thing works fine! The new filter I purchased first end up being bad!"

"After a long (pardon the pun) search and many revisions of my wants, this tractor seems to be the best value for my money on the used market. It is very strongly built and the 3 cylinder diesel engine always starts. It has great pulling power - just unstuck the UPS truck today - and the Long lift works easily and well.
These are not a common tractor, but are very similar to the Fords and appear to be a great value."
