Howdy! Please help me figure out the right tractor for me

Hi there.

I just found this site yesterday with some googling.

I leave in Barto, PA. I've got a ~40 year old Cub Lo-Boy for mowing my hilly 3 acres.

After struggling with this under-powered tractor for a couple years, I've finally decided I need something with more horsepower. The Lo-Boy can climb hills and it can mow but it can't do both simultaneously.

So, if somebody could offer some suggestions, I'd love to hear 'em. I'm open to suggestions of new or used, probably can't afford to even consider something over $10k. I'd much rather spend about half that, if possible. I think a belly mower would be the best because there are some tight spots I've got to deal with.

Other than mowing, I might like to use it for snow removal eventually.

Welcome. I live in Pottstown. If all you're going to do is mow and move snow, then you may get by with a larger garden tractor rather than a CUT or SCUT. You should be able to find something like a used John Deere 445 or an X465 or a used Cub Cadet 3000 series GT series with a mower deck and plow blade for under $5000.00.

Local dealers you can check out for used equipment are Robert Little in Zieglerville for John Deere, or ERB & HENRY in New Berlinville for Cub Cadet, or Passmore in Bechtellsville for a number of other smaller brands.
