I would have to differ from the last, I have had a Craftsman tractor for 25
years now, (OK, maybe they were better made then) but it is a 6 speed and
pretty quick. This thing has gone through the trails and in the woods,
pulled out many a deer. Yes it is hard to get on and off (if you were
elderly and had joint issues). I'm not sure just how loud it is but I don't
think is all that loud.
But, I do beleive that a golf cart would be MUCH better for him. I have seen
them on Craigs for 1200. Sounded like a good deal, same type elderly man
owned it, came with battery charges hard roof with rain enclosure.
