    Hi All,

    Just joined up to try to figure out what kind of garden tractor my Mom (84) and I (61) need to help us out in our 1 acre garden.

    We have been maintaining it by hand after we had it laid up each spring. She expressed a desire to see if we couldn't reduce our work load.

    Looking forward to lots of interaction

    Doug

    to the site.

    What sort of work do you think you would like to accomplish with your ideal Garden Tractor?

    Mowing?
    Tilling?
    Loading?
    Lifting/carrying?
    etc?

    Do you have a budget in mind? New or used?

    What brand dealers do you have nearby?

    Hi to mum!

    Well,-----A very loaded question,--but 1 thing that I found in my 5 acre venture is a couple Troy-built Horse tillers!---next is small tractors, like ac b,c,and g models.-- also farmall cub w/a few implements would work good.
    I also found that an 18 horse rider is really helpfull.--mine is a ac 917-h with a 36" rear tiller, ( I live on this during the growing season).---Your row width would have to be adjusted to the machine,--whatever you choose. Let us know more about what you need to use one for and row width etc. and it can be narrowed down as to suggestions! thanks sonny580
