A lawn tractor is the perfect tool for the avid landscaper, whether you're a professional or just an enthusiastic amateur with lots of land. Lawn tractors are different from riding lawn mowers in that they are heavier and more versatile, but also less maneuverable. A lawn tractor will usually have a rear or mid mounted blade which can't go into corners or edges. The lawn tractor also has less flexibility of movement up and down, allowing you to cut only to 2 or 3 inches at best. A lawn tractor can be used with a number of attachments including backhoes, loaders, rotary mowers and tillers. These attachments will allow more challenging lawn sculpting around your property.
