I'm thinking about buying a new tractor in the 25 to 30 thousand dollar price range. Would like something in the 30 to 35hp range. Witch one is the best bang for the buck?
Start with looking at all tractor dealers within say 100 miles of you. Then put together a list of tasks you want to perform with your machine. Start with the immediate needs, then try and write down longer term uses.
When you have your task list, it will help narrow the specs you will need to accomplish them. Then you can go getting quotes.
Lots of good brands out there. LS, TYM, Kioti, Massey, Mahindra, Deere, Kubota, others.
Just pricing a Kubota L3302 for instance with a FEL is $31k on the Kubota website. Prices are really high right now, bad time to buy, but if you need it you need it.
