Tractor advice

I need a new tractor. I've got 2 1/2 acres, lots of old oaks, side hills, and rough terrain. I'm looking at a Husqvarna GTH2754 and haven't been able to find much on that particular tractor except what the mfg. puts out. Anyone have any experience - - or any other recommendations?

What are you going to be doing besides mowing? What is your budget?

I'm planning on staying under $4,000. I mow - - that's pretty much it except each fall I spend approx. 24 hours towing a 5 hp lawn vac. picking up leaves. In the future I may look to a snowblower attachment.

For mowing and towing go see A Cub Cadet dealer look at the 2000 or 3000 series made for towing and mowing in mind.

I second that. A big heavy duty Cub with a shaft drive is hard to beat as far as garden tractors go.
