    I pulled many heap loads of rock/ dirt with my 2206. With a heavy load you have to be careful that does not get out of control and cause you to wreck. Pulling a heavy load is not any harder on the hydro than pushing all it can push with the snow blade. You could ask your dealer to see what they think.

    Murry used Briggs engines. Murry did not have the money to pay for the engines. I truly believe this is how Briggs bought Murry. MTD owns alot of the old name companies now. How do you say MONOPOLY.

    I saw somewhere that husqvarna was the largest mower manufacturer but I would think it is MTD.

    M E Race,
    Yep, you hit the nail on the head....."beware of big box retailer mowers"!!! But also, as mentioned by a few, even "dealer makes/models" can be multi-brand. I looked at Dixon ZTR's last fall and learned they are now a "blue Husqvarna" and not really the same quality as before the buyout. On the other hand, a lot of Husqvarna's new ZTR models look unusually similar to a Dixon, and probably are better machines than the "purebred" Husky models on "each side' of them in the lineup:0)

    The top of the line craftsman mower (about 7k) is made by simplicity. Just in case anyone is interested. Why anyone would pay that money for a craftsman branded mower, instead of just buying the authentic simplicity is beyond me.

    Are the Dixon mowers made by Husqvarna? They look similar.

    A Snap on mower maybe but not a craftsman.
