found an 1862   the tractor has power steering?   just want to get some feedback on these newer machines.  The newest one that I own is an 1812 which is my favorite , turns tight.   good power , trans is almost like an automatic, so smooth etc.   looking for feedback.  thanks in advance

Good tractor's. Plastics are prone to breaking. They have a well designed cutting deck. The Kohler m18's are a good engine. Better than the KT's.

Yea the mag 18 is the same power plant in my 1812 she has real good power, I have heard stories about hinges ,latches etc I suppose they get brittle and break.

Other then the plastic front end its a great machine. Mine is a puller so I liked the lighter front end. A year ago I meet a guy that made a nose for it. Now I have a carbon fiber one. Hes starting to sell them now. He also makes wheel horse hoods and fenders
