    SSSHHH!.... Don't let my GC2300 hear she's not a tractor . I just finished waxing her, getting ready for some more chores. It's never had a lawnmower attached, The loader and PTO do all the work.

    I would say yea. Like someone else mentioned Ford makes the Big dog Diesel F-350 and the little Ranger. They are both trucks and who ever buys each feels it will fit the need. Same thing with a SCUT. I would never own one but yes, they are a tractor in my eyes.

    To me tractor = Hydraulics, 3 point, and the availability to have a FEL/

    1*Is a sub-compact tractory just a glorified lawn mower or is it truly a tractor? My take and experience says it is that they are true tractors-just smaller in size-like a mini me.
    1*It's a real tractor.
    The x700s are really glorified garden tractor on steroids.
    There is a big difference between a sub compact and a garden tractor although they are both tractors.

    2*You can do so much more with a SCUT then your local big box "lawn master"
    2* this seperates the men from the boys.

    Is a tiger a cat? Do you cook your steaks in a pot or a pan? How many angels can dance on the head of a pin? Golly, we need a philosophy forum, so the SCUM know where they belong.

    I don't guess I own anything that would be classified as a SCUT. I find it interesting what people call things. My neighbor calls his deere (Home Depot) mower a tractor. At my house the deere GT235 is referred to as a lawnmower and the Mahindra 2615 is referred to as a tractor. I am not sure it really matters.

    I don't see how you can define the term "tractor" ...Semi tractor,Farm tractor,Tug tractor,crawler tractor......Wheel size/set-up,fuel type,Pushing/pulling etc. All tractors are'nt they ?

    Here's how one website defines "Tractor":

    1.A vehicle having a powerful gasoline or diesel motor and usually large, heavily treaded rear tires, used especially for pulling farm implements or machinery.
    2.A truck having a cab and no body, used for pulling large vehicles such as vans or trailers.
    3.Something that pulls or draws.
    a.An airplane propeller mounted in front of the supporting surfaces.
    b.An airplane having such a propeller.
    5.A toothed mechanism that automatically advances perforated continuous-form paper through a computer printer.
    [From Latin tractus, past participle of trahere, to draw.]

    I'd say #3 covers most compacts (including subCUTs).
