These machines are pieces of junk in the build quality department. We have had older rc30's and now a brand new terex pt30 and it is full of headaches also. That being said I think a lot of the bigger issues have been resolved.

In 265 hours problems have included-
Battery failed
Alternator failed and killed battery
Fuel gauge
Fuel sending unit
Hydraulic hard lines
Hydraulic soft lines
Bolts and pins randomly rattle and fall out, as have a few latches and more.

The machine has seen pretty limited and soft landscape work.

When it's on the up the machine works great and is very useful, just lacking build quality. I think they almost always have. It's what you might expect from a cub cadet lawn mower from home depot, not a 30k piece of construction equipment.
