I reallly think we are in the market for such a machine. I started looking online and muct confess, I got some 'sticker shock'. We have a 500 ft driveway to plow and mantain, 12 acres with several trails and 2 ponds, go through about 6 cords of wood per year, lots of lawn work, flowerbeds, mulch, stone, drainage ditches, rip out a stump here and there, etc. want 4X4, hydro, FEL, hoe, with intent for additional implements in the future, prob a mower for trail and field edge. (brushhog) Was thinking +/- 30 hp. But looks like I will be hard pressed to find something in my price range in the 30 HP range, how bout 24hp? to small? 25?, 26? I dont have a prefference name brand wise, but dont want junk either and mostly dont want to drop the coin for one that I will not be able to do the things I mentioned. Thanks for any help.
