    Default Another Assist With Purchase

    I am in the process of purchasing 40 acres.

    Breakdown is:
    20 ac woods
    10 ac hay
    5 ac homesite, meaning grass
    5 ac low land

    I would like to:
    Clear and maintain trees/grass
    Level 1000ft road
    Move some dirt/rocks/hay
    Possibly cut/bale hay in the future
    Some snow removal

    I am looking at:
    3000 or 4000 series JD
    Hydro so my wife can drive it
    Also will prob buy dedicated mower like x500

    This has been a tough process for me. I think the main options are 3720 or 4x20. Money is a concern so I don't want to over buy, but I have read about many people trading up...
    I have also read that 3000 series is not good for hay because of size/strength.
    I would not bale much, prob only 5 ac a few times a year, but I want the tractor to last.

    Thanks in advance!

    I work alot of small properties myself and have found the x749, 4520 and 110tlb to handle just about everything I do. I suspect you would be far better off to have someone else bale your hay, and then you could do everything else.
