I have a simplicity landlord 2110 with mower, snowblower, garden plow, snow plow, and tiller. Can you get the same tractor today that has 4 wheel drive with the same attachments(I know it would be expensive)?
 
Simplicity no longer makes a tractor style. I know John Deere has the X700 series garden tractors available with similar attachments, and yes they are expensive! I'm not sure what other manufacturers still offer a garden tractor since most just offer a zero turn or a compact tractor.

No

What a garden tractor with 10hp B&S could do in 1968 takes 30hp to do the same today.
 
20 years ago reliably teams met every day to design lawn tractors to last three years to stay in business.
cradle to grave 3 years these days
check me out on average the owners of garden tractors don’t use them any longer either.
 
Years ago when the city needed a garden tractor, we bought a 655 JD. It is still doing the job. It pulls a gang mower in the parks and baseball field, runs a rototiller, 60" belly lawn mower and a 4' brush hog. Powers a brush chipper, sprayer and fertilizer spreader. It has a loader on, full time....James
 
under 50 hp , garden compact depends on how your going to use it .
if your in the market for small compact garden tractor take a look and look at what availability. Link to Messicks mentions some trends as they see it
 
Deere, Kubota and a handfull of other foreign manufacturers make them. They cost about as much as a good car. Maybe more.
 
No

Not necessarily. A vintage garden tractor with 10 or 12 hp could power at most a 48" deck and would creep through tall grass. I know because for years I mowed our 5 acre yard with a 1974 Deere 212 with 47" deck and it was very slow going. My modern sub-compact (basically a big garden tractor) with 23 hp runs a 60" deck and mows as fast as you can stay in the seat. Double the power but half the time to do the same work.
