I didn't pay close attention to its model #, but I'd imagine it was same as a 2 series JD. I've wondered if the hydraulics were better on their small tractors since they have so much experience in the field. Compared to my 1025R, they were a lot faster in reaction but didn't have any more breakout or lifting capability. A full bucket of red clay slowed it down considerably. I only used it for about 3 hours but have a couple of thoughts on it.

Pro: speed of hydraulics
3 speed gear box
engine was quiet and smooth
Con: operator station very tight for me I kept trying to slide the seat back and steering wheel up but they were maxed
seat belt latch jabbed me in the hip so bad, after 15 minutes I stopped and got a wrench to move it
felt slightly top heavy even on flat ground
heavy, left some ugly tracks in the yard
hard to modulate bucket to back drag fill dirt
I understand people beat a rental, this one had 115 hours and was missing paint and trim pieces
the 3 pt arms ball socket was cut and welded instead of being bent to angle
the bucket stand looked flimsy and difficult to use

Think of it this way. You put 3hrs on it and there are 115hrs total. 115/3=38 people maybe less, maybe more. Imagine 38 different operators on one machine 👀

That doesn’t look all that different in size to my 2520. No wonder you found the hydraulics wanting.
