"I recently purchased a used Agracat 200 tractor. I am new to owning a tractor and cannot offer much advice.
However, I can say do not let your tractor run out of fuel. This happened to me as soon as we got the tractor home and drove it off the trailer. We never thought to look at the fuel gauge prior to buying the tractor. The previous owner never mentioned that the tractor needed fuel. I am told the tractor will not start until air is bled from the fuel line. The bad thing is I do not know how to bleed air from the fuel lines.
The tractor did not come with all of the manuals and I have not been able to locate a manual for it. Therefore the tractor is sitting in the middle of the field until I can figure out how to bleed the air out of the lines.
By the way this is a two cylinder tractor, which I suppose is a good thing, fewer lines to bleed. I am anxious to get it going. It is equipped with a front end loader and a brush hog.
It's only 20 hp---not much power for others, but it's just enough for me. As far as I can tell, everything works just fine on it. Before we ran out of fuel it started right up. It's a pretty neat little tractor."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Small size and great value.Cons: The manufacturer is out of business and there is not much information available on the Internet about this model tractor.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA OKI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"To the rater above, you state that the tractor is full of mechanical problems yet still give it 5 stars?
Please be honest and give an honest rating of the tractor, from what I have read all over the net the Agricat/Agrison tractors are just cheap Chinese junk and give nothing but problems, like all the ones that you have listed above (and they are ongoing problems I might add)."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Cheap.Cons: Cheap = Nasty. So beware unless you want a lifetime of problems.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: AUS OTI also considered buying: Foton 304, East Wind DF304 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"The Cons: I had an ongoing problem grounding the battery. I had to "jury rig" the tractor by using booster cables from my auto to the tractor starter in order to crank it. Every threaded hole in the chassis would rust. That is why I couldn't get a ground.
Also, I had a hydraulic leak early on. It was an inexpensive seal. Also, the starter went bad quickly. I don't own this tractor now. When I sold my property, the buyers absolutely had to have the tractor. I wasn't going to let a tractor prevent a property sale. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Very easy to operate, convenient controls, good engine, good hydraulics.Cons: Difficult to get a chassis ground for the battery. Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA NCI also considered buying: AgraCat 254 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I purchased it used. Got a great deal. It has a Koyker bucket and I got a tiller and post holer digger with it as well. I have dug rock so big out of my field that I need a huge tractor to drag them off. I can fill the the bucket full of rocks and it handles it, but is maxed. The only problems I have had is with the 4 wheel drive linkage. The ball bearing spline and coupler design is terrible. I replaced the ball bearings with dowel pins and have not had a strip since."
