So old faithful ain't so faithful no more . My PGT9000 Craftsman garden tractor finally crapped out. So now I'm looking at sub-compact tractors and starting to get very overwhelmed by what's out there. It must be a tractor loader backhoe with belly mower. Now comes the hard part......it must work like a real tractor. Some models I have come to find out can't lift and curl the bucket at the same time or 3pt hitch is either all up or all down no adjustability for grading or even snow plowing. I'm looking for input here cause at over $20,000.oo I don't want to overlook a thing. I also don't want a compact tractor (which would make this really easy just a green or blue decision then) my yard has to many tight spots for something that big to drag a finish mower and to big for some of the digging I have to do between my house and retaining wall........let's hear it!
