I should have stated, only problems to date are one injector failed at 800 hours and now the tracks are off we had one idler wheel with a bad seal. I keep hearing I am past my track arm bearing life expectancy but I do change the oil very frequently.
While I have the tracks off I added a hose to the grease zerks on the front idler wheels, kinda funny a few guys that own these tractors in the area never knew there was zerks there. I only grease them every 50 or so hours nut for those that don't know there is a grease zerk on each side where the tension cylinder goes between the front idler.

Only complaint about the tractor that I hope was updated at some point is the location of the A/C condenser. It's not sealed off well and mine is in the bottom behind the batteries, it eats so much dirt and is always a pain to clean. Every winter I pull it out and the air to air to wash everything out. Everything is pretty well done in that cooling package but the condenser is a complete failure.
