I am looking at giving a gift of a lawnmower to a first time home
purchaser. I can fully remember my first house and how relatives
were very generous in giving us the help we needed in establishing
a nice home. It's now my turn to be generous so hopefully I can get
some first hand knowledge from the people of this group. Here are
The property is four acres in size and hilly. It is in a northern
climate and has a long driveway.
So.........I need a riding mower that can have a optional snow plow
or blower attached to it. I favor hydrostatic drives over standard
transmissions and because of the hills the mower should have a low
center of gravity.
I have never owned a riding mower myself so fill me in on what may be
a good choice and let me know what to stay away from.
How hilly and how much is required to be mowed? Can have 4A and still
only mow a small area around the house.
Any land other than lawn? Horses, large garden area to cultivate, etc.,
Far too little to go on. If actually serious on the blade/plow thing
other than a scraper blade on a three point, 4W assist will be
invaluable (as it is for any heavy work).
