upgrading from 3/4 acre to 6 acres shortly.
previously I used a little deere d110, which blew up after a whopping 32hrs.
For the new property I have been looking at new 24-25hp Kioti's and Kubotas, but I have issues dishing out the big $$'s for a single unit that will be ill suited to both mowing and caring for the new homestead.
I have found an old Ford 1900 series which comes with most of the implements I will need and only has 860 hrs and a single owner for 30+ years. This will give me a solid compact tractor to take care of the bush mowing, FEL, snow blower, tilling/ plowing etc..
for a lawn of 1.5-2 acres I am looking at either a deere 170 or the Toro ss5000 with the new toro 24.5 hp motor.
sooo. I am looking for opinions on the deere or Toro as the main mowing machine and my decision to go with an older ford rather than a decked out 30 000$ new sub compact..
I cant find any reviews at all on the new toro v-twin motor....
