We are moving to an acreage and are looking for a good yard tractor. Basically, we need to be able to move snow (lots of it) and mow grass. We will also need to be able to level out a few rough spots of lumpy dirt and knock down some alfalfa when it gets a little long (no need to bale it though). We might use a tiller maybe twice a year. So far we have looked at the following: John Deer 2305 - 27 hp diesel tractor with front end loader and 52" mower deck. Massey Ferguson 1500 - 28 gas? hp with front end loader and 52" mower deck. Does anyone have any experience with either of these two models? Likes, dislikes? Advice?
