    Default Tractor Packages

    Looking to purchase/finance a tractor package. Here is my wish list:

    Utility tractor
    65 HP or better - will use Cat 2 Implements
    4wd - Sandy soil on my place
    R1's with tire sealant (lots of thorny mesquites in south Texas)
    Auger - Not sure on 3pt or FEL attach
    FEL - perhaps 4 in 1
    Chisel Plow
    brushhog - 10'
    Canopy - No cab
    Transmission type: not a deal breaker, low on the priority list
    enough hydraulics to support my implements
    I am not opposed to used equipment in the package to keep the price down as long as good service is guaranteed

    Tractor will be used to recover 140 acres of land that used to be pasture but now has become overgrown with mesquite. Support a small cattle operation. Lots of post holes to be dug and shredding to be done.

    Brands in my area (San Antonio/Austin) JD, kubota, Mahindra, Kioti, NH, MF, LS. I am not brand loyal.
    Best Regards,
    Highsmith

    Check out the Mahindra forum here in TBN - Buying/Pricing section. Amstaff is selling his tractor package. I know what that tractor can do as I have a similar setup.

    I'd go with a JD5093e for the most bang for the buck, this is Texas so watch the heat and a cab just might be more of a plus. Tractorhouse has some list for what I think good prices. As far as attachments shop around for your best deals.

    Unless you perform your own heavy maintenance and repair, a good close dealer is your best bet, whatever brand. Based on your acreage not knowing how it lays or what kind of shape it is, soil type, etc. it is difficult to recommend anything specific. Check the resale value of used tractors in your area by brand, that will tell you a lot about them. Based upon your post of 140 acres some sort of mid-range utility tractor would be your best bet 60-90 HP range. It's a little late in the season now, but farm machinery shows are worth a visit.

    Good luck and enjoy the hunt.
