Purchased in October 09, done over 100 hours, great tractor, had some fluid leaks to begin with, all cleared with next to no cost. Tractor has been used hard, and has the power to move a lot of rock and dirt. Good Purchase, would do again. But only problem would be the reverse gear is either too low or too high for snow blowing, but the cost saving over a deer makes it well worth it. Just remember to service and check bolts often, as there is a lot of vibration.
