I'm looking at getting a two-wheel tractor, but before I do, can anyone who's handled one tell me if they've had to do any non-motorized shifting of these machines or their attachments?  The BCS I was looking at is 200 lbs.  I can lug around 50 lbs. bags of feed, but I'm a fairly small female.  Are these tractors relatively easy for smaller-statured people to handle, or am I biting off more than I can chew?

they’re not that hard to move around when off (in neutral, the wheels move, after all, ), but it’s definitely easier when they’re pushing a bit. hopefully there’s no hills that you’d need to navigate while off?

definitely easier to shift while off than a four-wheeled tractor!
