Hello, I am new to the forum, so thanks for letting me sign up. I have a question. I need a lawn mower that can double as a garden tractor. I like to plant vegetables and till, disc and move soil. I would like a 2 in 1 mower that I use to cut grass and work in the garden. Does anybody know of mower that I can go out and buy that will suit my needs? I prefer to buy new or slightly used because I am not a mechanic and do not want old stuff (which I understand would probably be better)....

 

Thanks for your help guys....

Simplicity's and maybe Massey-Furgeson for a little bigger and better for real work.  Haven't I seen you on other Facebook forums?

looking for used or new?   Better with a good used one,  many are the same underneath the sheet metal.. Kohler engine, Sunstrand hydro, etc....

Cub cadet, Ariens S or GT series, Wheel horse, Deere. Bolens, would be good  but within each brand they have lesser "lawn tractors" that would not be good for pulling plows and such.... stay within the heavier models which ever brand you wind up with.

Welcome to GTT. A garden tractor(GT) is what you want. It can mow, tow and operate ground engaging attachments. A good new or near new GT is going to be expensive. That is why most of us play with older machines. Since it is December, you probably have a lot of time until you need the GT. Take yoour time and look around. Decide what you can afford and keep an eye on Craigslist, Epay, and local papers. Good Luck, Rick
