They are real solid and reliable basic no frills ag tractors that are pretty fuel efficient. I suggest getting 4WD if you plan on adding a FEL. ....

I have a 5203 4WD and find it is a work horse of a machine. They are said to be lite in the rear for their power but I have added Bio ballast to the rear tires. I would suggest you use weight of some sort either ballast or wheel weights. I find I don't need the 4WD unless I am in very slick conditions. Loader is very strong and can lift an amazing amount of weight. More weight then what the ballast counters. The ballast in my tires is around 400+ lbs per tire. I use the 1284 Frontier box scrapper for road work. It is a very heavy scrapper at 1200 lbs. It has no trouble pulling it to the point the ground spills over the top.
:) Over all I am very happy with the machine. It is a nice tractor for the price. Well suited for my needs. ....
