Deutz 6250 Posted by Sherwood Botsford on 01/05/2012

This is a fair utility tractor. I've owned it for 10 years, and put about 150 hours a year on it. I'm a tree farmer, so it doesn't get used for crops.

This is the FWA version, with a FEL and a 1/2 (1/3?) cubic yard bucket. The rear tires have CaCL solution in them for weight. I don't use chains when snowblowing.

It has no cab, just a 'sun screen'. This top is folded/pocketed in a way that collects several gallons of rain water. As soon as you move the tractor it slops off the roof and splashes off the fenders getting you soaked. I've removed the top, as it allows me to stand for a better view when working in the bush.

My uses:
1. Haul trailer around pot yard. I grow in pots so I do a lot of moving pots full of dirt and trees. Lots of 3-4 minute use. Lots of trailer use collecting firewood too.

2. 3 share moldboard plow. Breaking up soil for using in the pots.

3. Chisel plow.

4. Harrows.

5. Disk mower. (bushhog) While I also have a grasshopper, there's a lot of area that I only rough cut 3 times a year.

6. Snow blower.

REVIEWER'S ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Pros: Low maintenance. Once a year change the oil. Twice a year top up the other fluids, and grease all the zirks. Cons: Air cooled engine. Hard to start in winter. I've added a 400 watt oil pan heater. This makes it startable down to about 10 F. Colder than that, I don't really want to be on the tractor. Type of User: Commercial Farmer Location: Canada Outside of the U.S. I also considered buying:
