OK, I'm gonna be mowing about four times as much grass come spring as I have been here. Over 4 acres, with probably three full acres of lawn. I'll need some sort of tractor/riding mower since I really can't see mowing four hours a day with my old self-propelled one. There are so many options and I am a bit confused about which way to go. Ideally, I'd love a real tractor with a bucket loader and a mowing deck/attachment. Something I can transform the land a wee bit with. Never had an opportunity like that before. The only tractors I've ever run were the big farm tractors we used on the horse farms I worked on as a kid. A little out of my budget and a bit overkill for my needs. So, what are some options - new or used - that might fit into a $5K or less budget? An smaller old farm tractor would be great, and give me something to tinker with and have pride of ownership in. But foremost in my needs, it has to be able to cut grass well.
