We have a 5205 at the farm, so far it has about 800 hours on it and has been pretty good, however we've had 2 small problems with it. The first was the fuel tank leaking slowly in cold weather (I think its plastic) and the other was the cold starting heater grid in the intake was intermittently working. Both problems were covered under warranty though and its doing fine now.

Gave $20,000 cash for the 5205 and a MX-7 bushhog and 8-100lb front mounted suitcase weights.
