Reward Yourself With a Lawn Tractor for the New Year

by Jeffrey Anderson, All About Lawns Columnist

This is the time of year you could wake up to a foot of snow in your driveway. Nobody enjoys shoveling snow, especially heavy, wet snow. On the other end of the seasonal spectrum, when summer is in full swing, it's no fun pushing around your mower on 90-degree days. Maybe this is the year to give yourself a break and finally get that lawn tractor you have always wanted.

Lawn Tractors for Any Yard

Lawn tractors come in all sizes, and several styles. If you have a large yard, a larger model is a good option. Some large models come with your choice of a gasoline or diesel engine, and even full-time 4-wheel drive. A 28- or 30-horsepower engine is not unusual in larger tractors. You can even get a 60-inch mower deck. Think about how quickly you can finish your lawn when you cut 5-foot swaths. Then again, if you're riding a tractor you might not care how quickly the job is done!

If you have a smaller yard, consider a 10- or 12-horsepower lawn tractor, or an even smaller model. A yard with a lot of trees and shrubs might require a zero-turn lawn tractor, which can be very maneuverable.

Lawn Tractors Can Simplify Your Life with Attachments

A new lawn tractor can end your days of pushing a wheelbarrow of mulch around the yard, or lugging a heavy sprayer. There are many types of attachments available. Smaller tractors have carts and bagging attachments, and larger tractors have several attachments options, including:

  • Snow blowers
  • Snow blades
  • Dump carts
  • Sprayer carts
  • Spreader carts
  • Aerators

It's time to stop shoveling snow, and pushing a lawn mower. Let a machine do the work for you--reward yourself with a lawn tractor for the new year.
