My tractor (3525 D1 model) has made things easier. After four years paint prep is a big matter. Paint has faded and I there is rust on panels, especially on hydraulic cylinders. The fittings on the cylinders have begun to rust and leak. I'm no paint expert but I do work with painters. Now it seems I'll have to remove the cylinders to repair or replace...not cheap!!!! I still love the old tractor but the old John Deere riding mower will have to do until my tractor is repaired.
Still looking for a backhoe attachment.
I have had this tractor for almost 11 years (900 hrs.) and have had no problems.It.s the best tractor I have ever owned!
This tractor is a beast! Other that my wife it's the best investment I've made. Not knowing any thing about Mahindra when I was looking for a tractor, I did a lot of research and learned a lot about the competition and for the price this was a bargain. It out classed the others by a long way and I saved thousands of dollars.
In our part of north central Idaho we have a vast temperature expanse and this thing never hesitates to start or shift. Even when it's 15 below it started right up with out the preheater. Thats because I didn't know how it worked at the time.
If Im mucking out the corrals or plowing snow this thing never ceases to amaze me and we get a lot of snow.
It's very simple to operate, it has the right speeds for pulling a baler and smooth enough for doing tedious work around buildings or fence posts. It's also very comfortable to sit and operate. All the controls are conveniently located and easy.
I purchased this machine from Scott at Cascade Equipment in Spokane Wa and he has been very good to work with. Even when mine needed some work done he brought another down from Spokane because he said he wouldn't leave me without a tractor. And thats a 2 and a half hour haul. Our John Deere and Case-New Holland dealer 12 miles away wouldn't even do that. I know this because a lot of people have them and know the history. I would strongly suggest buying from him. Service is exceptional.
I want one of those!!!
THIS IS THE FINEST TRACTOR I HAVE EVER USED IN MY FARMING CARRIER. I WISH I WOULD HAVE BOUGHT THE LOADER WITH IT.
I purchased this tractor to use on our cattle farming operations. I use it with round bale spikes (front and back simultaneously), 10' shredder, 8' disc (and 8' drag harrow simultaneously), 6' rear blade, and 10' drill. The front bucket is indispensible, luckily our place is located along the sandy river bottoms of the Brazos River, where mesquite trees flourish. The front bucket easily digs into the sand allowing me to pull up the mesquite by the roots, trees as big as 2 to 3 inches, roots as deep as 3 or 4 feet. Larger trees require more digging, but with a little experience, they are also removed. Of course this is no match for a back-hoe or dozer, but I must say I was surprised at first, and have been 110% satisfied with the versitilty of my Mahindra. It also does a good job dragging my Gopher Machine, gophers used to be a "rough" problem. Only downfall with my 7520 4WD is it is too tall to shred under many pecan trees and the exhaust pipe sticks up in the air allowing it to catch limbs and probably get broken or bent. But this problem was easily solved, I bought a smaller Mahindra 3525 with exhaust underneath alongwith a 5' shredder, now shredding under the trees is much easier. Lastly, if you have a choice between a 2WD and a 4WD tractor, get the 4WD, you don't always need it but when you do you are really glad to have it. I know I am.
I like this tractor. It is tough. I use it to pull a 20' batwing shredder, haul 1500 # round bales on front and back, pull tiller, grader blade and knock down mesquite and locust trees, etc. No power problems.
The only thing I don't like is the exhaust is at a level where you breathe the fumes. This can be fixed, just haven't done it yet.
I have just had the tractor for about 20 days and it has done everything asked of it so far. It even helped get delivered. Here in Eastern Ohio we have seen cold and snow from about the first of the year and the day the tractor was to be delivered we had about 4" of new snow and I live back off the main road and the truck that was bring the tractor got stuck, Mahindra to the rescue. It helped the dual wheel 4 X 4 and trailer up the hill. Also has started easy even in single digits temperatures.
I have never had a hydro trans before but is realy nice for blade and loader work.
WOW. What a tractor. I owned a 25hp gray market tractor before this one but there is no comparison. This is a tough tractor that does more than you ask of it. It will work as hard and as long as you and do it with ease. I have been able to do more work in ten hours on this tractor than I could do in 10 days on the other. I bought it with the front in loader and it is a real work hourse. I looked at Mahindra because My son had one.
I have not abused this little tractor in any way.
But,it has done everything i have asked it to do
From snow removal to light landscaping work
I sure am glad i picked the Mahindra over the
competitors.I have really enjoyed it,and thanks
alot for making a truly nice tractor in this
