600 series garden tractors . . . all new, plus a zip-sized 10 h.p.
Check their references . . . ours say "garden tractor"-- 8 or 10 H.P. garden tractor. Which means these yardpower beauties outclass their classes because they do a lot more than mow. They handle front, center and rear PTO driven attachments. You can push things around with a front-mounted blade or blower . . . have an ideal over center view of grading or mowing . . . take pull-type soil working tools through a whole plot of crop ground in fast time. Comfort, convenience, control . . . it's all there from steer to stern . . . from top to tread.
Ride one. These true tractors have some great moments to offer.
