    Default How big of a tractor do I need.

    I have a 20 hp Iseki 4wd drive tractor with a FEL. Use it to mow, groom motorcycle trails, move dirt. Pull posts and have tried it push over dead pine trees in my pastures.

    My problem is that the trees are more than my tractor can handle. I pulled the front end loose and stripped out the FWD last year. The Iseki has been repaired but I don't want to tear it up again.

    The trees are probably 7-12" diameter and dead. I was using the bucket to push them over and got 5-6 toppled but have 20 more. I want to cultivate the field and put in either wheat or soybeans in the future. I probably have 9 acres of pasture that could be put in crops.

    How big of a tractor should I be looking at?

    The biggest thing that will fit in your barn/through your gates. Compact utility "tractors" are for gardening.

    SPIDER TRACTOR: '95 John Deere 5200 MFWD making around 60hp--12.4-24 8ply Goodyear R1 front tires--18.4-26 10ply Goodyear R2 fluid filled rear tires--Tires are set 8' 2" wide for maximum stability on hills--540 Loader with forks and custom fabricated bucket.

    Unless you need it for other jobs it is cheaper to have some one come do it. I had 50 assorted trees and stumps popped and the land graded for 650 dollars.
    Much less than a back hoe attachment or new tractor.
    Still want the back hoe though..
