I won't be using it like a full sized tractor so i think the clutch will hold up fine for what I want. I plan on getting a 3pt mower, flail or brush hog style. I am building a loader for it now but waiting for spring to resume work on that. Not to be used for "real" loader work but to make life easier, I have 3 ruptured disks in my back so the loader will pick up and move things I can not. Pulling small logs from the woods for fire wood and pulling a trailer. Pretty much what I'm asking from the 154 is well within it's strengths.
I am mostly looking for sustaining what power it does have while pulling a small wagon up a grade or mowing without having to drop gears. After using it some more as an ATV to get to my hunting area realized it may be a little low on power from what it should be, but I may be overestimating what it should have. I will be checking the compression and running a vacuum test this week, hopefully.
