    Tractor buying advice

    I have about 6 acres of grass to mow a long shared dirt road to maintain. I have a 1974 International 2400A which is 47hp gas job. Looking to replace with a 3046R or 4052M. Looking for any advice on the models.

    Thanks

    Welcome from Illinois I liked at a 3046 used but chose to go with a new 2038R. Get the largest you can afford. You never have too much power. Good luck

    What sort of mower are you using? Finish mower? Bush hog? Sickle bar?

    How's the surface? Is it flat on both sides of the road or is there a ditch to deal with?

    And what else would you be using it for other than mowing? Do you use it to plow snow in the winter? Move hay bales? Haul logs out of the woods?

    btw, from just the other side of Worcester!
