Why choose a garden tractor?



What are the benefits of a garden tractor?

Garden tractors are a great addition to your small property. You can mow and maintain your yard with ease. With a garden tractor, you can add attachments to help you complete some small projects. While garden tractors are slightly larger and require more space for storage, they come with more horsepower to help you tackle jobs around your property. Easily move from mowing the lawn to hauling material or tilling your garden.


What are the use cases for a garden tractor?

Garden tractors are a good mid-level tractor for your property. Garden tractors are built heavier with the option to add some heavy-duty attachments. With the addition of attachments, you can do more than just mowing the lawn with your garden tractor. Make your garden tractor pull its weight in the wintertime by adding a snow plow, and keep your driveway, private road, or access roads clear.


Why choose a lawn tractor?



What are the benefits of a lawn tractor?

When it comes to mowing and maintaining a smaller property or one with multiple trees and landscaping, a lawn tractor is a great option. Lawn tractors are compact, making it easy to navigate around objects on your lawn and even easier to store in smaller spaces. With a lawn tractor, you can easily mow and maintain your property while also helping you with small tasks as well.


What are the use cases for a lawn tractor?

When your main concern is mowing your lawn, a lawn tractor is a great option. Lawn tractors can easily go under tree branches and around shrubs because there is no ROPS included to get caught up on. These units can pull some light-duty attachments, but their main purpose is to cut the grass.


Does the size of my property matter for the type of tractor I need?

The size of your property, along with your property needs, helps you narrow down what type of tractor works best for you. If your property is smaller than five acres and you are only needing to cut your grass, a lawn tractor is the perfect fit. Property sizes around five acres with a few consistent projects can benefit from a garden tractor due to the ability to add a few attachments to fit your desired needs.
