When my 530 is working I love it. Plenty of power for what I do handles great and very maneuverable. But unfortunately it is getting old, it needs tires, the rims don't match, all the gauges are junk, the 188 diesel engine smokes and blows litte bits of black tar into your face while you are useing it, the throw-out bearing growls pretty bad when the foot clutch is pushed in, everything leaks oil and needs topped up daily, the draftomatic has so much play in the bushings that it doesnít really work anymore and all the pieces have been broken and welded together, the tranny gears are so worn that Iím afraid to run it in 2nd because it growls so bad. And worst of all if you are not super careful it loves to get stuck in reverse right in the middle of your job shutting you down till you pull the cover and put the shifter lever back into the rails. i started working on it a bit last month and got the generator chargeing, headlights working, rebuilt the injection pump and put in new injectors and gave it a brush paint job. all it did was make me relize what a money pit It could be. To fix all this would cost more than the price of a descent running 530. But they are not too common in these parts. I guess I will just keep suffering along. Just wanted to get that off my chest. LOL
