    Default Re: What tractor to buy?

    If you are limited to a $4000 dollar budget I think you are better off buying a good lawn mower like the Deere X324 AWS. Start working away from the house cleaning up areas as you go. Don't abuse the mower but get a cart to pull behind it When you get a large area cleaned and cleared check on renting a tractor and tiller for the weekend. If you can work steadily and are retired then rent a 40 hp tractor and equipment for a week or month to get the place ready to seed the lawn and clean up the wooded area. In a matter of weeks you should be able to get most of the heavy work done leaving you with mostly mower work.

    My reasoning for the above is that the implements alone will cost quite alot of money, simply buying a tractor is only the beginning. I have had plenty of older tractors and equipment and still have some of it but parts can be expensive and hard to find, truth is if you are still busy working to feed a family it may cost you more time with old equipment than it is worth.

    To sum it up I recomend buying one good piece of equipment at a time, buy it once and buy it right.

    If you buy a loader with the tractor you will get a much better price. There are often "free loader" deals. If you add one later you'll pay full freight which can be $2500-3500.

    I had a CK20 to clean up and clear about 5 acres. Awesome little tractor for that type of work. Much more capable than any SCUT. Add a grapple and bush hog and you can clear most anything. A used low hour CK20 with loader can be had for $10-13K. Tremendous value.

    Thanks, I didn't think about the shipping. I'll have to see what's available in the used market when I go shopping.
