Lawn tractors are
mowing and also light chores. They are super convenient for yard cleanup because
you can use an optional rear bagging unit, or easily tow a
trailer or implements to improve your lawn 'appeal'.
Toro lawn tractors are equipped
with a 42" thru 46" deck. These units sport a 20+hp engine,
which is more than plenty to accomplish work around the yard. The nicer
ones also have hydrostatic drive, which is a stronger overall drive.
of Toro tractors also
have a KeyChoice system that allows you to mow in reverse without
turning off the deck. The gas tank is huge at 3 gallons...
that'll keep you busy! The cut is quite nice, and will leave you
smiling as you sip away at your ice-T in the cup holder!
next level up is a Garden
Tractor. Toro's GT2200 is a nice for larger lawns (up to 2.5
acres). With a 25hp Kohler Courage engine, and 50" deck, there is not
much left to wish for. The transmission is the strong hydrostatic drive
type. It also has an electric PTO. (An electric clutch activated by a
switch on the dash.) They are stronger for bigger chores around the yard.
Although not quite what WheelHorse beasts used to be (nor do they cost $7000),
for many people this machine would work well.
