Best Buy Report On Power Trac Lawn Tractor
Jerry Maurer, Springfield, Ohio: Jerry’s impressed with his Power Trac PT-422 4-WD, articulated lawn tractor equipped with a 22 hp. gas engine (www.power-trac.com; ph 800 843-9273).
    “I’ve owned Power Trac tractors for more than 13 years. They’re multi-use, and the company offers several different models ranging from 18 to 65 hp. All of them are hydrostatic drive with no belts or chains, and they bend in the middle to steer so they don’t tear up your yard.
    “More than 40 different quick-tach attachments are available. I can remove my mower and install a bucket or forks in less than 1 min. to do other jobs. My tractor can lift 800 lbs. 4 ft. high without needing any counterweights on back.”
    Power Tracs have been built since 1984 by a family-owned company in southwestern Virginia. They began selling equipment through representatives and dealers and then decided to sell through dealers alone. But in 1998, they decided to drop the dealer program and sell direct, which they say saves the buyer more than 30 percent.
    Some of the available attachments include a dirt bucket, grapple bucket, utility grapple, and a 4-in-one bucket that works as a standard bucket, blade, grapple and false bottom bucket. There’s a 3-blade rotary mower, a brush cutter, a flail mower, knuckle boom mower, and a unique boom mower with a 5-ft. reach and 20-in. cut. It lets you mow roadsides and other areas that you can’t reach with a conventional mower.
    Also available is a hay fork, fertilizer spreader, cement mixer, forks, disc edger, power dumper, front mount mini hoe that can dig 4 ft. deep, trailer towing adapter, winch, tree shear, potato digger, post driver, concrete roller designed to unroll 5-ft. rolls of concrete reinforcement wire, and plugger core aerator. There’s a post hole digger and planter drill head, dirt/snow blade, box blade, a couple of different trenchers, a ditch filler, sweeper, stump cutter, rototiller, “tree hugger”, power rake, snowblower, lift boom, pto and hydraulic-driven sump pump.    
    The company also offers single and double seat scooters, and a 6-wheel hydrostatic drive amphibious all-terrain vehicle.
