My son and I just bought a 26xl we have had it 2 weeks and played with the hoe and the loader. We are impressed it has great power and the hoe digs like a groundhog. I removed some shrubs and dug a sump for the house roof drains through the roots of a old Maple tree it cut right through roots as big as my arm with little problem. We have done the 10 hr.servicing. Some of the fittings are not shown in the paperwork , like the linkage zerks under the floor board, the tie rod ends need a pump or two also. I found a sun shade at Tractor supply it clamps top center of the ROPS and has a removal umberella only cost 85 dollars. My only complaint is the seat is a real pain to lift and turn for the hoe position. It is comfortable just a bother to get set up.
