Lawn Tractor / June 10, 2018 / admin.
Native grasses are growing in popularity as opposed to importing "exotics" from other climate regions and then forcing them to grow where they dont normally grow. However thats an issue for another time. Lets get back to lawn tractors. Buying A Lawn Tractor Treat your purchase of a lawn tractor as you would that of buying a car or any other means of transport. It is after all a major investment. Visit the showrooms of various manufacturers (or look at their sites on the web) to see what kind of features each model has and what their quality and reliability ratings are from such independent consumer groups as Consumer Reports. If possible test drive the tractor. Engines There are three types of engines on a tractor - air-cooled and liquid-cooled gasoline engines or liquid-cooled diesel engines. Each one has its advantages...and its attendant costs.
Utility carts make transporting soil and other objects much easier. The best models have a sloped design and molded ribs that make loading and unloading much simpler - even with a shovel and feature wide tires to reduce resistance. Just dont overload them! Add a tiller to your lawn tractor to get your garden soil turned over and ready to plant too. It is remarkable how easily a simple lawn tractor can convert to an effective garden tiller. Cultivators harrow disks and plows are also available - some of them even in commercial grades. Blades and shovels for landscaping are also available. Fall Attachments Leaves brush and other debris need cleaned up in the late summer and autumn and a garden tractor can help you.
Remember that not all lawn tractors have enough power for really deep drifts but dont pass up the opportunity to improve your driving with a simple attachment. You can also choose a rotary broom or snow blower instead of a snow blade. These arent the only garden tractor attachments out there of course. Theyre just a small sampling of the options. Not every attachment will be available for every lawn tractor and not everyone will be right for your property. However the right attachments can let you get a lot more use out of just a single tractor. Thats a worthwhile investment! Take the time to find out what attachments are available for the make and model of tractor you own and start working more efficiently. Youll be amazed at the difference it can make.
