I'm considering the purchase of a 2 owner G174 with a loader, snowblower, and 600LB!!!! 3pt ballast weight (i couldn't believe it, it's a big steel drum full of cement). Current owner has never even installed the snow blower. I have quickly looked at the tractor, at night, and told him I have to role it around in my head a bit and see it again this weekend if he still has it.
Any advice on what to look for trouble spots? it has 800 some odd hours on it.
Are parts available for these? is it true they are closely related to a few Kubota models?
He listed it at $7500, and immediately lowered it to $6000 for me.
I currently use a loaderless Deere 317 to pull firewood out of the woods, and plowing snow. I'm always wishing it was heavier and had some sort of lifting and grading options.
