"Had this tractor for about 2/3 years. Has accomplished everything I've asked. Has a front end loader worth its weight in gold. Has a small leak on the fuel injector pump. Will have a pro do the repairs and adjust the brakes.
Have had Oliver 1600 and 2 Fords. This one is the perfect weight and power I need. Very strong ROPS and factory top is the best."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Weight and power, top/shade.Cons: Very heavy hood design could be easier to use.Type of User: Homeowner 50-100 AcresLocation: USA TNI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"Have had this tractor for 2 years. Worked it hard with a front end loader. Great size for my mountain farm. Plenty of torque and power. I bush hog, grade the drive and plow with it. also use it for timber work, hauling logs, rocks and heavy machinery.
So far the only problem has been a leaky fuel injection pump which i still have not repaired. Will get it to a shop soon. Had to change fuel filters when purchased and getting it primed again was a witch. I did convert the front filter to a permanent attached base which makes fuel work much easier. So far really love this tractor. have owned Oliver 1650 and 2 Fords (8N & 2000). This was a bargain."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Size, torque, and flexibility.Cons: Sood heavy, fuel system hard to work on.Type of User: Homeowner 50-100 AcresLocation: USA TNI also considered buying: Ford 3000 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I've had my tractor a little over a year and other than the 3 point controls needing to be worked on, I've been plenty happy. 50 hp, 2 remotes, I bought a few implements and it works for what I need it to do around our little 25 acre farm. I square bale, till, rake, brush hog and generally do upkeep and got no complaints."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Ease of use, tough, low maint.Cons: Have to order part off the internet/no local dealers.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA ARI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
