I have one of those that was going to be my next diesel conversion until the engine deal fell through.
They seem to be a well built tractor and I'm particularly fond of their looks.
Good luck with yours.

Well that stinks, I was looking forward to another diesel upgrade...
I really REALLY put mine through the paces and it is taking every bit of it with flying colors . I have pulled so hard on the 3 point hitch I actually sheared the key and roll pin on the rocker shaft already! All fixed , someone was concerned about things bending? Not a chance, it sheared stuff instead.
These are one hard pulling, rugged machine, and the Eaton/Peerless transmission combo is nothing short of unreal!

As soon as it dries out some here, I will be putting mine through some tough work. I have a box blade job down at the building to get better drainage around it. Got to pull a bunch of gravel out of the way to rework the flow of water away better.
