It's got the 8 hp Honda engine. Hydraulically driven wheels and seed discharge chute. It's a great little machine, because, IMO, it's so simple. I use it a lot. I bought it new, and since new, reverse has been pretty puny, pathetic actually. Forward is fast! Anybody here have one of these besides me, and if you do, how well does reverse work on yours? Is there anything I can do to speed it up: bleeding or whatever? The manual, if you can call it that, is just a few photocopies; very litle info. Thanks for your help.
