buying a tractor?

3259 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

a largish tractor that has 4wd and a loader is not the best choice for cutting or at least baling. we just bought a international 986 this spring had the air fixed and just love cutting and baling with a tractor with a cab on it. It has around 100 hp and parts are pretty easy to find if it breaks. It all depends on how much you have to spend?
