We have had a Simplicity Legacy for about 10 years now and it has done a great job. It's 4wd with hydraulics front and rear but we waited too long to opt to add the front bucket... they are no longer available. Simplicity bought out Massey Ferguson. We added all the attachments over the years and tossed the belly mower aside in favor of a pull behind three blade finishing mower... 60" wide. It's sweet. For snow, Miss T uses the Blade and it handles the 750' drive just fine MOST winters. One year we had 4' drifts and just stayed home. LOL... we are on a tertiary road, so no point in clearing the drive... besides, with the Titan Pro4x, who needs the drive clear?
When winter rolls around and the snow hits, Miss T can't stand to stay inside... she pulls out the tractor and clears a path to the coops and then pulls the drive, just in case we need to get out... we rarely risk it. Folks around her mostly don't do well in snow and ice.
This year, she might not clear either, and could just use the Ranger to run to the coops... it's 4wd. We can also use it to run down to the mailbox, it should easily handle the drive, even up and down those hills. Not clearing any snow at all would be lots easier. Just sweep the steps and the ramp. The ranger will be parked in the shop in bad weather... warm and dry.
You can tell a lot about the character of a man...
by the way he treats those who can do nothing for him.
