  2. Andrew Voros says:

    Love the tractor!!! Has been a real asset to helping me to maintain our 5 acres grounds. The wood chipper takes 4” logs and the tractor powers through it without any problems.

    Year of Manufacture: 2012
    Pros: Excellent hp to weight ratio
    I run a Wallenstein BX 42 wood chipper (excellent)
    Front end loader (a little extra lifting capacity would be nice)
    54 inch front mount snow blower. (Excellent)
    Rear ballast box (a must) with FEL.
    Cons: Minor shimming required on fuel tank to provide proper clearance for hood to properly close without hitting fuel cap. Minor issue that I easily resolved.
    The floor/foot rests could have been built a bit heavier.
