buying a tractor?

3261 Views 32 Replies 23 Participants Last post by  bachelorb

We are in need of a tractor. Unfortunately we know nothing about tractors. What are somethings that we should or should not be looking for in a used tractor. We have about 40-50 acres we would like to use for hay. Also I would like to get some mobile chicken coops out in the pastures. Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Definitely get 4WD if you're going to have a front-end loader. You'll never regret it.

Also, it's not usually a problem on tractors of that size, but make sure that it has a live pto that works independently of the clutch, and draft control.
