Hello fellas, I’m new to the forum and have some questions about a tractor I picked up yesterday. I already own a craftsman 22.5 hp garden tractor from the mid 90’s and it rips. It’s crazy powerful but the deck is in terrible shape so I started looking for a backup/replacement. I stumbled upon this dys 4500 and saw it was 24 hp and had a 54” deck. It also came with a snowthrower attachment and some other odds and ends so I jumped on it. This thing looks like a toy next to my old one and after some reading it turns out it’s a yard tractor and not a garden tractor. That’s where I’m confused. This thing has an incredibly powerful engine so what’s the weak link, the transmission ? I’m definitely keeping the big dog because aside from the deck it’s perfectly operational so I’ll use it for my towing and workhorse stuff around the property. I do use a cyclone rake pretty frequently, do you think the 4500 is up to challenge of towing my big *** and a cyclone rake around or will I blow the thing up ? The attachments alone are worth more than what I paid for it so is it conceivable to find a newer garden tractor that the deck and attachments will fit or are the attachments strictly for yard tractors ? My property is 1.75 acres and it’s mostly flat with some small hills here and there.
