"Whomever designed this tractor never had to replace a fan belt or a water pump.
It is hard to find parts. When it runs it makes a good garden tractor and pulls a finishing mower. I bought it because it was cheap and believe me, it is cheap."

"Great little diesel tractor. I use it to Bush Hog between pine trees and pull finishing mower.
I was buying small lawn tractors every other year at $800 - $1000 a pop, it was not the best deal for maintaining my lot. Found the Farm Pro at a local dealer. It included a Bush Hog, rake and box blade for $4,500.
Has been very good on maintenance, and just in the last month have had to replace alternator and radiator hoses. Overall I would buy it again."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Inexpensive, easy to maintain.Cons: Not a lot of dealers now. Have to get parts online.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA ALI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

Farm Pro 2420 Review
Model year: 0Date Purchased: 2013-06-15Number of Hours: 405
"All in all this seems to be a solid well built tractor. I am not the original owner so I cannot speak to the quality of the product in new condition.
When I bought it, the unit was well taken care of with little signs of wear. The covers are fiberglass which I think is a plus since it won't rust. Runs well. Solid built.
Within the first few hours of use, however, the left knuckle arm snapped and left me with long grass and no steering. So now I get to find out just how easy (or hard) and cheap (or expensive) parts are for it. I know nothing about diesel and this is my first tractor so this is an opportunity for me to learn as well."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Ease of use. Sturdy. Cost effective.Cons: Not sure how easy parts are to get.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA OHI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I had less than 150 hours on mine before the throw out bearing went out.Then with 200 hours the center spun out of the clutch.The power lift started to leak down, the steering wheel broke and then the fan belt. Don't get me wrong, I got 336 hours out of the belt, but trying to fix anything on this tractor is a pain.
The dealer I bought mine from went out of business so I am going to sell this one and look for a Deere. We have a JD dealer in town.
The only good thing about this tractor was the price when I bought it, but keeping it going is something else."

"This is a very basic tractor, 2wd, 20hp, the same as a Jinma 200 - for $3,500 brand new, it was a great buy - no bells or whistles, but all the basic stuff - Farm Pro has been good on parts support, even sending me a free part after the warranty had expired - but no service available. "
