    Default tool question.

    So I'm picking up my new tractor Wednesday with loader, I know I need to check all the bolts. I'm going to Lowes today I'm pretty sure I need a torque wrench that let's you set the psi on the bolts right? What size sockets do I need for it and what other basic tractor tools do I need. I already have basic household tools.

    Thanks

    I would advise waiting until you read the owner's manual to determine your torque wrench needs (in terms of ft. lbs.). You should be able to handle most tasks with 1/2" and 3/8" socket sets. You can buy additional sockets as needed if you do not already have them in your collection. Depending on the tractor, you may need a set of allen wrenches. Chances are that all of the fittings will be metric. Buy a grease gun now. Later on you will need filter wrenches if you do your own servicing.

    I forgot to mention that wrench sets (open- and box-end) will be useful.

    If you have a Harbor Freight nearby, I'd suggest stopping in there and look at their tools. They are inexpensive, but quite satisfactory for somebody who doesn't make their living twisting wrenches. I've been happy with every tool I've bought from them.
