 Buying in the future

I am moving to a new house in Haddam Connecticut. It is on 5 acres, most of which is wooded. The driveway is 800' long, we get the occasional snow storm of 8 to 10" and there is approximately 1.75 acres that is clear. I'm looking for the best fit lawn/garden tractor that will cut the grass, clear the gravel driveway, and possibly do a little digging for a barn in the future.

Any suggestions on model, accessories, hp, FWD v.s. RWD, where to buy, prices, new v.s. used, etc.

Any feed back is appreciated.

Thank you.
Todd

You are the perfect candidate for a BX22 or a B7500 TLB.

Depends on what 'digging for a barn' means but often it's better to size a tractor for the on-going work and contract out a few of heavy start up projects. We have two cleared areas about the same size and my Ford (which is larger than the tractors MarkH mentioned) is a little large for them. I have enough work that can use the size to keep the tractor busy but I mow with a riding mower because it's faster than using the tractor. The tractor would have to maneuver around buildings and landscaping and leave a bunch of trimming in the process.

I'd talk to a few dealers near the property and try a few tractors. The combination of dealer/tractor that seems best usually is. A nearby dealer is handy although arrangements from a distance can work--especially if you can transport the tractor yourself. You don't really expect them to be in the shop often though, but it is easier to drop by and buy parts rather than have them couriered. I wouldn't even think about a 2wd compact--especially if there's some snow removal to do and most people think a HST is well worth the small sacrifice in pto HP.

Todd, it's tough to beat the BX22 unit for it's versatility and your size yard.

I HAVE JUST PURCHASED 5 ACRES TO MOW, SNOW REMOVE AND DO SOME MOVING OF DIRT FROM ONE PART OF THE YARD TO THE OTHER. I'M PURCHASING A BX2200 WITH FRONT BUCKET, 60" DECK , REAR BLADE, AND LANDSCAPE RAKE. PLAN TO GET POST HOLE DIGGER LATER FOR SOME DIGGING. $4000+ LESS THAN BX22 AND I DON'T NEED THE BACKHOE THAT MUCH. AM PAYING SOMEONE ELSE FOR OCCASIONAL DEEP DIGGING.
