    Just my opinion...

    1) It needs a 30-35hp engine. 25 simply isn't enough.

    2) 26" rear tires would be better and help with compaction.

    3) 15" front tires " " .

    It's a shame. I think they had a good chance to redeem themselves after their first diesel failure. I have yet to see or drive one (doubt I will either as my dealer is very small), so forgive me for making assumptions. I'm assuming 25hp isn't enough, as 27 to 30 is just adequate on other makes.
