I finally bit the bullet and bought the Mahindra EMax 25 with loader and MM 60" deck.

I got tired of dealing with all the little PITA problems with the 20 year old Derby ZTR, 50 yearold Ford 3000 loader tractor,and the 35 yearold LGT 195 and the FF18. The stuff the new one will replace could almost pay for it, if/when I can get them sold.

 

2 speed hydro, 4WD with locker, mid and rear PTO. Rated at 900# in the bucket and 1300# on the 3PH

(the loader is off for mowing, it rides alot better that way)

Gee.  I've not had my little garden tractor a year and now everyone is upgrading to sub-compacts.

 

Enjoy!

Originally I was looking at ZTRs. the 62-70" machines I was looking at were in the low teens in price, then you have to pay sales tax on that... then you dont need them 6 to 7 months out of the year. For just alittle over a grand more, I got this. $1500 rebate and no sales tax. Pretty much a no brainer on this one.

That's a nice little tractor, Although you need to post more pictures of it with the loader!.

If I had the $$$ I would buy a LS that size, right now I have a 20hp Kubota but it's a mid 70's and it doesn't some of the luxuries that a newer tractor has (like live PTO)

Nice little tractor.  I love my GT's but having rear 540 pto, diesel fuel economy and a real tractor frame makes it hard not to upgrade to one of the smaller Scut's.  Mine isn't really any larger than a John Deere 430 GT, but can do so much more.  The SCUT market is basicly what we called a super garden tractor just a few years ago(think IH Cub Cadet 982, JD 400 class, Case big wheel ect).  But instead of all the ablities being options, the 3pt, rear pto and even 4wd on some is standard.  One can get a nice used SCUT for less than many higher end lawn and garden tractors.     Congrats on the new tractor, looks great!     Mike

How do you rate how well it does mowing? Are the R4 tires tearing anything up?

It mows great. the only damage to the grass has been from using the loader for soil prep for the new side walk.

I changed the Cat0 pins on the box blade and the geometry is all wrong. It is level on the ground but the back end sags when lifted.

Does your top link have like 3 positions on the tractor side?  My SCUT does, so I can vary the angle of the top link in relation to the lower 2 arms.  That might correct the tilted position when in the up position.  But then some implements do not hang evenly when in the raised position vs the down(working) position.  Mike

The top link only has 1 hole. i built the box blade to cat0 dimensions. the hole for the top link on the blade needs to be raised about 6". This is a small Cat1 tractor

I made the move many years ago from garden tractors to a SCUT. I miss the simplicity and the well made old construction of some of the better known brands but the handiness and functionality of the SCUT just about makes up for all of those. It's nice to use standardized 3 pt equipment and have an integrated PTO. Yea I miss the old ones but I wouldn't trade my Cub for any of the new little ones out there today. Looks like you got a good one. Enjoy.

I have been wanting to get a side by side shot of the Mahindra and the LGT195. I finally got the steering fixed on the 195, so here they are. The loader make the Mahindra look bigger, but they are real close in size. Not sure if that means the E-max is small or the 195 is huge.

I always wanted one of the 195s. They seemed to fill in the right spot for a part time, small acreage wannabe farmer. Not sure they are completely comparable to the current SCUT but in their day it was a heck of a step up from the other garden tractors on the market. Call me crazy but I would still like to find one just for a project. Something for the grandkids to learn on and to use as they get bigger.
