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 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
32.5 hours on my 5035 w/ML 130 FEL as of late November 2010 in the Georgia piedmont. Very happy with it and lotsa fun! Plenty of power and all implements have been very easy to hook up (by myself) with the flexible (extendable) lower links!
Implements: 6' rotary mower, 6' rotary tiller, 5 ft. bog harrow, 8'x10'chain drag harrow, 6' rollover box blade, 7 shank chisel plow. Soil type is sandy loam with some clay. Terrain is rolling hills/flat. Rotary mowing and food plot prep has consumed most of my time so far.
No problems whatsoever and no issues. I flipped the lights on the ROPS to face to the rear. They were too bright for night work.
Dealer support from Lott Enterprises has been superb from day one. I'm a first time tractor owner, but have driven several in the past. The shuttle shift has been easy to learn/use even with the FEL-(But,I grew up using a clutch on many vehicles.)
Friends have been "wowed". A couple others have shown green/blue/orange snobbish disdain. Effum! This is a great tractor!
I've had my Mahindra 3 years and have 120 hours on it, but it still looks and drives like it did the day I purchased it. I use it for mowing, digging, moving dirt and to work a large garden, I have never had a problem with it and will buy another one when I move up to a 4 wheel drive. You can't buy another brand that is built as heavy and has all the features as the Mahindra tractor.Plus, it's a great looking tractor!!
This is a great little tractor. Very manuverable in tight areas. I use it to maintain 2.5 acres of sloped land. I cut brush, repair roads, transport bulk grains, dirt, and rock with ease. I have a 5'box scraper that I equiped with a "top & tilt" feature and I can do all sorts of grading and Digginf around the property. I am extremely satisfied with this versatile and powerful little tractor. I would highly recommend one for the small property owner.
Great tractor a real workhorse. I have not found anything yet that this tractor cannot do.
This is by far one of the best tractors on the market of any brand for the money, ease of use, ruggedness, and well built. It is under rated in terms of actual strengths and power. I have about 15 hrs of ops on it so far, mostly clearing away old fallen trees and thick brush from Hurricane Rita damage on my farm, and underbrushing with a bushhog. The combination of the strong front end loader, weight, and 4wd makes this tractor almost equal to a small dozer. I also have an older gasoline Ford tractor w/FEL that would not even budge some of the trees and brush that this tractor did not even begin to strain to completely push away in 2wd. The only fault I have found so far is it is advertised to handle a 6' bushhog and it probably would if you only mow light grass or thin weeds. But if you have thick heavy Behaiha grass ( all of East Texas )and thick overgrowth it will barely handle a 5' which is what I have. It will bog down in heavy thick grass & weeds with a 5 footer, so I advise to anyone who may consider a package deal to only get a 5' bushhog in my opinion. It is also unbelievably fuel efficient, in 15hrs of hard use it has only used a little over 1/8 tank of fuel. I was beginning to wonder if the fuel gauge even worked!!! But it finally started to move off the full mark. You will also need a heavy duty Low-boy trailer with 8-ply trailer tires to haul it because it is VERY HEAVY, especially with the rear tires filled with water like mine. Do not try to haul it with regular type pickup tires or you will be on side of the road with a blowout!!
600+ Hours on my 2615 now with No problems, I grade dirt/rocks with a 5' box blade, bushhog with a 5'unit, pull a 5' set of disc's (harrow), spear 700-800lbs. hay rolls for my horses (use the back or it WILL upset/tip its not the tractors fault it is what it is use common sense), it is the only tractor that has paid for itself, keep your tractor serviced and it will last a long time. this florida sun dust and sand is brutal. a very well built tractor at a fair price.
