Default Mahindra 5570 reviews?

I think I'm about to pull the trigger on a new Mahindra 5570 tractor with loader. Best incentives of the year and from all I've heard so far, a very good machine with a 5yr/3000 hour warranty. Any first hand reviews or experiences? Thanks in advance.

No worries there, I don't want or need a cab. I won't be running it everyday for a living. Our last cab tractor always had A/C issues and I'm sure I don't have to tell you what cab is like in August with the sun beaming down through that glass and no cold air blowing.

1533 with loaded here and could not be happier. For a 35hp tractor it does a lot more than I would have thought.

How much money do you save buying a Mahindra over an orange tractor?

Evidently not as much now as a few years ago. I priced 60hp tractors several weeks ago and the difference wasn't over a couple thousand. Now I realize that's real money, but I own Kubota, and it would have to be really good for me to change. That said, I know a r.o.w. mowing contractor that has them, and they have to be tough to endure 10 hr. a day in that environment.

Get a kubota. Go to the dealer and operate both tractors, loader functions and everything youll see the kubota is alot better machine and ask about service after the sale. Dont buy with out operating them both look at operator station and control layout

Iím in the same boat. Iím kicking around a new 50hp tractor but have always run Kubota. Donít really want the emissions crap and someone told me Mahindra is only one you can buy without it still. On the flip side, saving $1500-$2000 up front to me isnít worth dealing with the BS if the off brand gives me grief.

When I was tractor shopping I looked at them and test drove a few. They seemed ok but compared to other brands the workmanship on the tractors didn't seem up to par with other brands. Know some people that own them or did own them that tried to use them every day and eventually changed brands do to break downs. I think they are good if they don't get used real hard. Not trying to discourage the purchase just passing the same info I was looking for when I bought one.

Thats the only way they can compete with the kubota is to give the tractors away. Have you went and operated both brands? There is a huge differance in fit and finish operator controls etc. dont go only on price tonbe disappointed later on

26000.00 for 70hp 2wd with no loader. I asked last week. My only problem with Mahindra is the warranty service. Bill's Tractor is the only one near me and their reputation for repairs aint always been the greatest, and they stock no parts

Actually Mahindra is why Kubota has cheapen up. Comparing Apples to apples there isn’t a 10k difference.

I own a few tractors I’m not a fan of sub 100hp tractors I use them out if necessity. I don’t think mahindra’s 100hp tractors are proven enough so I would recommend kubota. But in the 60hp or less Mahindra is very very strong. 60-100 hp pick the dealer you like best, but would give slight edge to kubota

I’m about as unbiased as they come unless someone is bragging about a JD and then it’s just bless thier heart, they don’t know any better

Something I forgot until 175gr jogged my feeble memory. The company my son works for owns a few newer Kubotas and he says the emissions crap gives them problems. Mostly the re-gen I think, but it could be operator error. The only reason I was pricing was to step up from a 2wd with no fel to a 4x4 with one. I decided to buy a good used one built before the emissions crap was mandatory, if I buy at all.

The OP is insane if he buys a tractor without an FEL. There are uses that you’ll literally just dream up...and it will do the job.

Take a look at LS tractors. I just purchased a LS cab tractor XR series and was the best bang for the buck.

Might want to look at a New Holland Workmaster 70. Front wheel assist with a loader and bucket was 31,500. Have to agree with some above. A tractor without a loader is very limited to only pulling a shredder or tillage equipment.

Well, the John Deere was a stripped down 5075e and I believe it was a tier 4. I am not interested in a tractor at this time, but I do see several dealers each week and always make small talk with the guys.

I have a 2004 MF 71hp and have no issues with it. I bought it used with 90 hours on it. Better to look for a used one if possible.

What issues are you having with your fuel system? My dad's tractor has an issue where the rpms won't exceed 1500 (or somewhere close). Pedal mashed to the ground and nothing. Mahindra claims its the less than 1yr old fuel tank (tractor has 35 hrs) that is rusted out. No rust in the filter and the filter isn't clogged. Mahindra Customer service has been terrible during this issue. They told my dad that for X amount they can do a diagnostic. They also continuously blame it on his "bad" grade of diesel in the tank. Warranty doesn't cover this supposedly. In a nutshell, they are giving him the run around. His 1st Mahindra was great. No issues and operated perfectly. His latest has been a nightmare.
