"I have done several projects with this little tractor and am still amazed at how much it speeds up all of my projects around the house.
I think the Subcompact is useful on almost any property size, even down to an acre due to its size to power and utility nature. I have had no issues. I like that it has plenty of seat and platform room for my 6-foot 4-inch very large frame."
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Small, powerful, spacious seat and platform, easy controlsCons: Would be nice to know when your glow plugs are on with a light or indicatorType of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA OHI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS

"I find this the GC line to be very well thought out from an engineering point. Everything is easy to get to, locations are great, and comfort is superb. This machine can pull, push, lift and anything else you'll need for the average landowner. It's built heavy, compared to some of the others, and the pedals are easy to use (not a rocker pedal). "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Excellent all-around tractor. 4WD, strong, and comfortable to get in and out of.Cons: Rear lights could use more protection.Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: USA NHI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Massey Ferguson GC2400
by James Vollman
Model year: 2010Date Purchased: 2013-10-19Number of Hours: 43
"Recently purchased with 43 hrs on it. Now sitting at 48 hrs. Growing up on a grain / cattle farm and moving to town and working in the oil patch left me desiring something like this for close to 30 years. O.K. - Back to the tractor.
So far I'm impressed with it. Did a lot of front end loader work and tilling with it on a residential lot, landscaping for proper drainage. The hydraulics are very strong. It also significantly exceeded my expectations in torque and weight combinations in being able to unearth topsoil and virgin clay, at just off an idle.
And did I say smooth and quiet! I'd used Bobcats before and it tight quarters, they destroy the landscape as much as you are trying to create, not to mention the noise. The tiller I believe is a little light for my liking. It is a Muratori MZ-2X 125. Did the job I needed to do, but seems a little flimsy for breaking up what I was working on. Probably does well in established gardens.
The 60" belly mower, I haven't tried to cut grass yet, but it appears to be a fairly hefty built unit. Will be able to submit a more valuable report card in the late spring, but for now, all I can say is AWESOME!
50hr service coming right up...in my garage, thanks to all the great advice and experiences shared on this forum. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: All the features I need for the basics and them some.Cons: Perhaps a bit much for a tractor this size by a foot throttle and a self leveling FEL would be awesome too!Type of User: Homeowner 1-10 AcresLocation: CND OTI also considered buying: REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Great Little Tractor
by Bill Johnson
Model year: 2010Date Purchased: 2010-07-02Number of Hours: 63
"I bought a MF GC2400 package that consisted of the tractor, FEL, mid-mount mower, and snow plow to maintain my property.
The first job was to tear down and remove two old storage sheds and then level the site for a new steel building. Next was digging out a completely silted in stream bed, one bucket wide and two hundred meters long. Next, I built up the banks of the stream to reduce/prevent flooding. Then started cutting three and a half acres of tall grass. Lastly, used the FEL and plow to regrade a washed out driveway (100 meters long).
That was all in a two week period. Since then I have used it to cut grass, plow snow, pull out old hedges and small trees, drag a couple old cars out of the yard, and unload a fireplace insert from the delivery trucks (UPS). Lots of small chores that I just couldn't do without it. "
REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION Pros: Ease of use, agility, and low fuel use.Cons: Too much plastic, turn signal/brake lights that extend out too far.Type of User: Homeowner 10-50 AcresLocation: USA PAI also considered buying: Cub Cadet GT2100 REVIEWER'S PHOTOS
Yard Maintenance Jewel

Model year: 2012Date Purchased: 2012-10-20Number of Hours: 135
"For it's size and price, it's hard to beat. I use it for driveway maintenance summer and winter with FEL and 60"rear blade. Brush cutting some old pasture with a 48" woods brush bull. I did lots of landscaping and land clearing pulling out small trees and alders. I no longer need to use my shovel or wheelbarrow :).It's the perfect size for the yard and won't hurt the grass with turfs."

Tough Little Tractor
by Ben Edmonds
Model year: 2009Date Purchased: 2010-07-10Number of Hours: 305
"I thought long and hard about the ratings I gave this tractor. Pound for pound, it is the toughest tractor I have ever used. I use it to mow my lawn and I have a bushhog to mow my back lot. I also have a FEL. This tractor handles all these implements with ease.
I considered giving it all 5s because I couldn't find any faults with it. However, I do wish there were a few changes. A collapsible ROPS would be nice. I would also like a better location for the rear flashers. They are located outside of the ROPS and are subject to getting hit by the trees I work around."
