Looks to be a very capable machine. How do you like your Mahindra tractor overall? If you don't mind me asking, how do they compare in price to some of the more main brands?

I like the tractor very much. In this size(22hp mitsubishi diesel) they are very comparable in price. It seemed to be a bit more well built than the Kubota... more steel than plastic. I liked the fact that it has two pistons to control the bucket ( Kubota has one in the center). Another deciding factor was the courtesy of the dealer when I was shopping. Kubota and John Deere dealers didn't seem to have time for me but the Mahindra dealer said come on down and give it a good test drive.  I only have 55 hours on it but it has done everything I have asked of it. Hopefully I will continue to have good luck with it.

I've never seen one of those up close before. I notice it doesn't have a ROPS.

I took it off. It has a folding ROPS but it kept hitting tree branches.

Friendly people at any place when you are looking to buy some thing always make the difference. Happens all the time. Noel

Nice tractor. No dealer here in my area.

Glad to hear your happy!  My neighbor brought one home last fall...same model with FEL (or rather, the dealer brought it to him).  He loves it.  I've spent some time looking it over and comparing with the 23hp Kubota we use at deercamp, and have been very impressed.  I agree with every point you made...it seems to have less plastic trim, I dunno why, but I like the 2 cylinder bucket tilt vs 1 cyl, and the dealer here is basically begging to get you into one of these, whereas the JD dealer gave my neighbor the impression that the tractor will sell to someone, and he didn't seem to care if that someone was him!  The 'bota dealer we have had experience with near camp, just seems to be on his own service schedule.  Took 6 weeks to get the tractor in and completed for a $900 seal repair.  Just didn't feel right.  They didn't pick it up or deliver it.

 

The dealer that handles them here is a the areas big New Holland AG dealer.  i see their truck/trailer out and about with these frequently.  I have no idea if they are working them, selling, showing, or demoing, but they sure have made a presence here.
