My garden’s about an acre and a half and has trees, shrubs, slopes and is rough in parts. I’m getting too old and bad tempered to be towed about by a 30” Toro TimeWaster so am going for a ride-on. It needs AWD, hydro drive to wheels and blades ie no belts, must be able to get under shrubs, have a small TC and large wheels and be very manoeuvrable. I don’t like B&S engines, so Honda/Kwacker/Subaru? 100/110 cm deck would be about right.
I’m thinking of Husqvarna or Stiga but I’ve heard pos and neg about both makes for build quality and reliability. Anyone any suggestions/experiences please?
