very happy with the tractor. pasted all my expectations. i cut several large trees on my property last year. i was shocked by the length of logs this tractor could handle, while the tractor is still small enough to manuever though the trees in my yard while mowing. plowed several snows this winter never spun a tire. best purchase i ever made.
looking for a second hand , realized I could get a brandnew great tractor with whopping 5 years warranty for the same price as one with a few thousand hours on it ! and about half the price of a green one that's built in the same place but a lot lighter and less warranty....after half a year and 250 hrs. on it I'm still almost yealous of myself !! great workhorse , the loader is strong enough to get the backwheels off the ground . Had pto trouble but the dealer instantly provided an other tractor and fixed it . Don't miss my old John Deere one second !!
Excellent tractor with great customer support. I would recommend to anyone in the market for a ~80 HP tractor. You won't be disappointed!
I love my max 28 shuttle shift. It runs a 5 foot rough cut mower like its playing with it. very fuel efficient. Makes a great deer carrier and fire wood hauler. i can honestly give it 5 stars. there are no cons on this machine ,only pros
I bought the Mahindra after looking for the right fit. My first choice was a Kubota BX series, but was disappointed with the size, quality and capacities of the BX, so I went to my #2 choice, the Deere 1026R and again, found it to be a disappointment. While looking for the Deere I also saw the big red Mahindra's at the dealership selling new. I tried an 1816, which I found nice, but was disappointed to learn the blower was rear mounted. The owner told me the new Max series was almost the same, had more horsepower and had a front mount blower. The fit was good so I bought the Max 22.
I have 60 hours on her now and am completely pleased with my choice. The lift capacity of 900 pounds is about right, although I wish it was just a bit more. The built quality is excellent and using it in the woods gives you a lot of confidence when you are slamming around in the rocks and stumps. All the fenders are hood are steel, thank god because the plastics on the kubota or Deere would already need replacing.
The engine is very strong, runs smoothy and is moderate in terms of noise. The air filter is easy to get to for regular cleaning. The oil filter is a bit difficult to get to cleanly to get a filter wrench on it, but it is not impossible. Removing the sides to check the oil is kind of a poor design, but it is not at all difficult. The 3pt hitch is awesome, with a high load capacity it gives me a lot of versatility when strapping logs to the makeshift bar I set up between the 3pt hitch pins.
I have added a soft cab, a rear finish mower and a snow blower. I also keep a weight box on whenever the loader is on. It makes a world of difference. The large wheels give tremedous amount of traction especially on hills and in the leaves and dirt in the woods. I also use aRatchet Rake for clearing slash and debris.
I have a friend who bought the 1026R and we got together to play. He wishes he had the capacity and strength of the Max 22, but he is still a Deere man, no matter how much better my tractor is. I also got together with another friend with a bx25. There is no comparison. His tractor isn't a tractor at all when compared to the Max22.
Purchased my first tractor and it was delivered today. The MAX 28xl Shuttle is more then I expected to get when I started looking. It came with the Loader, and I added the backhoe, rake, rear blade, and spreader. I couldn't be happier, and best of all - no buyers remorse! The dealer was well informed, has a large inventory, and I left with a big smile. I will write another review after I get out and can put it through its paces.
i dont know how i did without such a great tractor.have a mf 65 also.love the ease of use with the mahindra;power steering.bucket,4x4 and very comfortable to ride.there is a lot of additional controls that im still learning to use but only have 6 acres and a large garden.so i dont use alot.i would recommend this tractor as it is all that i wanted and price was great too.i shopped around a lot but found mahindra to be a great buy and a great product.
being a previous mahindra , i knew about the quality and craftmanship they put in there products,five years ago i purchased a new 2615 4wd my frist tractor ,not one moment of trouble, but my little company has grown and i need a little more horse power after searching the web i purchased a new 3535 this tractor is un real , i have now cut all of my cutting times in half , outstanding performance, stable and looks great ,Mahindra , Well Done Murrays Lawn Service
I had a 2008 3215 HST that was a great tractor, just too small for what I needed. After working with Kris Liles at Straub International in Salina, KS I got a GREAT trade in value for it. I moved into the 5035 HST because of the lifting capabilities. I am a huge fan of the HST and for what I do around the barns I need the control. With a bum knee the clutch work isn't fun. I stayed with Mahindra because of the workmanship and value. I cannot say enough about Kris and Straub Int. While I have nowhere near the hours I would like to have (yet) I know I won't be disappointed. I move 1800 lb bales and have no problem with the loader and power. The only downside is the rear is just a tad light. I do not what to fill the tires so a ballast box is in order.
Love it very simple tractor to operate has lot of power
