On Top of the World

Mark Capsis has a 40 acre weekend escape with

stunning views in Wamuran in the Glass House Mountains of Queensland. Mark is a city boy who has always wanted to own a few animals and when this

property “on top of the world” came up for sale about a year ago he knew
it was right for him.

The property had been let go for some time and was in need of some work.  Mark needed a tractor to get on top of things. Mark looked at a number of tractors.  “I looked at Kubota and John Deere and a number of Chinese brands.  At the end of the day Chinese products were the best value and more than good enough to do the job.  I ended up choosing the East Wind DFS 854 because I liked the shuttle shift for easy shifting between forward and reverse and the controller on the 4 in 1 bucket looked nice to use.  The 2 year warranty is pretty good too. I got a slasher and a post hole digger at the same time.  The package has definitely made my life easier.” advised Mark

One year on with the help of his East Wind, Mark has cleared plenty of Lantana, put in fencing and discovered the 4 in 1 bucket is very versatile.  He now has a few head of cattle and the kids have somewhere to ride their buggies.  Mark reported “The tractor now has 100 hours on it and

The East Wind DFS854 has heaps of grunt

we have operated it in some pretty steep conditions.  The brakes are excellent and give you plenty of confidence.  I had considered a smaller tractor but I am glad I got the 85 HP because it has heaps of grunt. The extra weight also makes it easier to push over small dead trees etc. with the bucket.  To sum it up, if I had my time again, I would happily buy another one.”
