I bought attachments as needed. Gradually mechanized all kinds of garden work. digging, sowing, hoeing and harvesting. In the winter, I shovel snow and sled the kids. Fuel consumption is very small. in normal conditions in the range 2-3 liters, at extreme loads up to 4 l/h. The only drawback I can mention is the fast wear and tear of the drive belt and increased vibration, I have to change the belt every year and tighten the bolts every month.
Inherited a country house and a vast plot of 3 hectares. No time or desire to manually handle it. I bought Forza 150 with Japanese engine (I consider it more reliable). For two years I can not rejoice at my purchase. the machine is excellent. Runs like clockwork in all seasons and weather. All maintenance is periodic lubrication and tightening of bolts.
Figuring out that I can not till the country side by hand, I decided to buy a single-axle tractor of lightweight type. I have chosen Forza, as there are inexpensive spare parts and components for this model. I’m satisfied with the purchase. the machine can easily handle loamy soil, cultivate, dip, mow and collect grass. By means of an adapter, I turn a single-axle tractor into a tractor, which simplifies the transportation of various goods. I hooked a sledge, a cart and a boat with a motor to the machine. The single axle tractor is perfect, simple and reliable, it’s worth the money, I recommend it to everybody.
