5 of 5 Nice! March 2, 2021
Reviewer: Daniel Meeks from Middleburg, FL United States  
Shipping and assembly was pretty easy. The driver works great, I’m driving 4x4x6 and 6x6x8. The only issue was the return line must go to the hydraulic reservoir so for my tractor I had to have a machine shop custom make the fitting.

3 of 5 Review October 29, 2019
Reviewer: Kent Cuthbertson from Farnham, VA United States  
My HD-8 did not come with a rubber splinter guard shield and I called regarding this matter when it arrived. I was told one would be provided and it never was. The unit was rusted in several places from sitting in the yard on a pallet and the plastic covering was torn. Otherwise, the unit works great now that I have it in operation.  EA Response:  We will follow up with this customer and make sure the issue is taken care of.  UPDATE  10-29-19:  According to the manufacturer, the design was changed in early 2018 and the rubber guard is no longer featured or offered on the drivers.

2 of 5 Fair January 18, 2016
Reviewer: Chuck Baumert from Norfolk, NE United States  
Machine arrived in good time and all the advertised pieces were there.  The packaging left much to be desired.  There was only one band on the pallet allowing the pieces to clash together and knock a lot of paint off of the metal pieces, the pallet was broken up also.  Certainly doesn't look new and hasn't even been assembled yet.  The two boxes containing loose parts were smashed although it doesn't seem like anything was actually damaged.  Machine was received through my place of employment and the supply people signed for it but didn't note the damage.  I was not there at the time.  I am hopeful that when I assemble it there are no problems.
