/ First time buying a tractor tips? #11
If most of your property/task will eventually be mowing, I'd get a Zero Turn Mower with a 52" - 72" inch deck...and a weedwacker. Save the money on a tractor mowing deck. You'll probably use the tractor often at first, then it'd be mostly mowing unless you intend to do some farming, hay, crops, etc. Once property is sorted out...if you're mostly mowing...you are going to want to get it done and a tractor is very slow, can not trim mow that well and no matter what type of tires are on the tractor...they will dig and leave marks. Regarding implements, determine if you're only going to use an implement once or a few times - once you get the property in "maintenance condition" you might not use these attachments any longer. See if you can rent them...like the fence post digger. I have purchased many implements (fun and exciting at first) then after a few times...I don't need them and either sell them at a lost or they sit around taking up space.
