Hello all. A little info on what I am looking to take care of. We are on a half acre, not a large property at all, but with the respiratory issues I have(COPD/Emphysema), mowing, and shoveling snow, really takes the wind out of me. Our property is a middle lot, the lot to the South is elevated above us, to the North, it sits lower. There are some slight hills to our property, to funnel water away from the pool in the backyard, and to funnel it away from our neighbor to the north in the front yard. As much as I hate it, we have a limit of about 2k on the tractor, I'm gonna talk with my wife later, and see if I can't talk her into upping the budget a little. Again, snow removal is a must, so from what I understand, a strong trans is needed. Driveway is a two car drive, but we must also keep the sidewalks clear, or face a fine. It's hard to tell from pictures, but here's the hilly side of the front yard, the opposite side of the garage is completely flat. The back yard is also deceiving, around the pool, the yard drops off about 5', and kinda steep.
