    I bought this tractor from my aunt last year. I have 138 acres and this is my reliable workhorse. I have baled hay, snaked logs, landscaped and dug ponds with my MF 275. The only trouble it has given me besides the occasional flat tire is the front hydraulic cylinder seals leak. Keep the exposed portion of the hydraulic piston rods clean of debris and rust or it eats the seals very quickly and the fluid leaks/drips constantly. I wish they still made tractors this dependable and economical to operate!!!
