I'm looking for a small tractor. My dad has a J.D. 2040 and it is perfect, but they have changed series many times since it was new and I'm not sure I want to spend what a J.D. will cost. I have about 4 acres to mow and my wife loves mowing the yard (yes, I do realize how lucky I am which is why I want to ensure that she continues to love it) so I need a tractor that's easy to use. Must have power steering and preferably a hydrostat. I was thinking of something with 30+/- h.p. diesel. I want something bigger than a big lawn tractor so I can do other things with it. I wanted to stick w/ J.D., Massey, Ford, New Holland, Case. Not anything like Mitsubishi, Mahendra or anything like that. I would like to be able to find parts if I need them. Suggestions???
