I can't imagine trying to keep up with my 7½ acres without this tractor. I purchased the heavy duty front loader bucket and the 60 in. mid-mount mower deck with the tractor. I have since added a 60 in. PTO tiller. The 4-wheel drive is absolutely necessary where I live.
Using the mower deck with high-lift blades, I don't rake or blow leaves (and I have tons of leaves). I just start in the middle of the front lawn (1½ acres) and blow them to each side. The get blown into the woods or the drive, where they eventually blow into the woods behind my house.
I use the bucket (loader) for hauling wood, moving dirt and mulch, and lifting or moving almost anything heavy.
With the foot pedal hydrostatic drive and the Super-steer, it is a breeze to mow the 3½ acres that I keep mowed.
