Get a 4X4 with opnly a hydrostatic drive, power steering and R4 tires. They most all have motors and drivelines built buy the C H I N A or J A P companies.
I had a 33hp 4X4 New Holland in a previous life and loved it, loader, 5' bush hog for the pasture.
Had a JD 185 hydrostatic drive lawn tractor with a Kawasaki 17hp for the driveway and trim mowing.
Sold it all and moved to the desert. I still have the Honda HRA214 21" self propelled I bought new in '83.
Small trimers and blowers: nothing but Stihl. Use Sea Foam in all the gas/fuel all the time.
