May I suggest a Ford 8XX series tractor. These go from $1000 to $5000. You can buy a used 860 or 840 for about $2500, and a full set of used implements costs another $2000. Don't be afraid of the 801 select-o-speed; that transmission, if it is running right when you buy it, will last your lifetime. Now you have everything you need for a small country place for less than $5000, and the tractor you buy will probably have 35 or higher HP. There is nothing like a backhoe bucket loader for convenience, but you don't have to own one because you can rent or borrow one. I went without a B/B loader for 20 years when I bought an old Ford model 775, and I wondered why I ever went without one. The BH/BL is the most useful tool on the place. Beware of bucket loader attachments for tractors because they are death traps that always need instant maintenance.
