hey, guys, new member here. im going to give a brief run down of my recent search for a new mower and include details of tasks id like to be able to do as well as property info and get your input on a recommendation. id like to start by saying i own an acre of land, but thats including my house and outside pool. id like to get a new mower that would be able to pull a plow. every year me and my wife borrow my dad's tiller to till up a couple areas for plating wildflowers, sunflowers, and zinnias. going forward we would like to possible begin a smallish vegatable garden as well. so im thinking a sleeve hitch with a couple different implements would do the trick. also, we live on a dead end non-state maintained road. here in the Piedmont region of NC we dont get a lot of snow, maybe 3 inches here and there, but it would be nice to use a rear blade for scrapping the driveway as well as a portion of the road since i will be getting a sleeve hitch. next, im way past due for a yard overhaul. im going to be doing some major reseeding this fall and will be pulling an aerator/ plugger around multiple passes in my yard. its one that belongs to my dad, i donnt know the weight of it, but its the kind that constructed of metal and you fill the central cylinder/tank with water to give it the extra weight needed. it gets heavy. lastly, i will be pulling a cart for various items ranging from multch to wood. i will probably also be pulling/towing rounds of hickory out the woods from a hickory tree i had taken down over a year ago. one last note, im a little over 6' tall and weigh 300 pounds (of solid steel and sex appeal*).
so, i go to the JD website. enter in that i will be mowing up to an acre, as well as select that i will be mowing, aerating, hauling, snow removal, and grading/leveling and the first model recomended is the E100 lawn tractor. the highest model recommended is the X370 and every model in between. is it safe to assume that this range of machines will do what ive described above?
