    According to Webster they are, pretty much, the same thing. I would say they can, usually, be used interchangeably without violating any major rules of grammar.

    Did your reference mention anything about Noah's tractor(s)?

    There may or may not be a difference, strictly speaking. But practically, if you are searching on Craigslist, you better try both terms or you won't find half of what is being offered.

    I use to consider a fel, backhoe, front snow blower, mmm as attachments while a disk, landscape rake, brush cutter were implements. Now do I have any concrete basis for this after contemplating it? Not really.

    I dislike getting caught up in semantics, and picking a nit to within an inch of it's life ... In my world, the terms are interchangeable.

    Here is the answer (IMO) :
    "Implement" is the broad, general term that includes all equipment, attached or towed; "Attachments" are a sub-category of implements and would generally includes things mounted on the tractor that are not towed. i.e. All attachments are implements, but not all implements are attachments.

    I consider TBN to be the gospel of tractoring. Given that they do not have an "implement" forum, I tend to believe the most widely accepted of the interchangeable terms defaults to "attachment".

    And you had better think of every possible way to misspell both words and search for those terms too. If you want to see the failure of our education system in action, go read some Craigslist ads.
