    Tractors do find there use to an LCO, they're great for hogging down over grown lawns. Throw on a set of high lifts and a bagger for fall and you have a leaf eating machine. they also can do other tasks such as towing rollers and aerators. do you mow large yards? then a tractor can also be helpful:)

    i love using my tractor, it is very versitile, i can tow dethatchers, aerators, rollers, and trailers full of muclh. the cut is also great. IMO i would put in on the trailer as it is a great tool to have.
