When you said "tractor" I thought of something you can plow fields on and grow corn, not some glorified riding lawnmower!

Interesting! To me the two terms were interchangeable.

And alternatively, what do we call the motor vehicle that pulls this on a highway?

Jonsey, he's got you there. "Tractor" means "something that pulls" from da Latin. Did your dad ever pull a trailer with these things? If not they more pushed, cut, and weren't as cool as Vark's snowblower.

So, did he do anything like this?
