I'm looking at Farm Pro tractors, a brand I'm not familiar with but they sure are darn cheap.
Has anyone ever heard of them and can you tell me what you know about them?
I'll be using a tractor for primarily pulling an aerator and hauling mulch. Perhaps some light grading too.

Made in China, they have many dif. names over here, most are 2 cylinders, 40 yr old technology thats why there so cheap. And you get what you pay for.

But at 1/2 the cost of a similar Kubota....and will sit in the garage most of the time......seems that the MUCH lower price makes more financial sense.....or .....does the brand break or wear out so fast that it isn't even worth looking at?
If I were to use it every day...then the higher, more reliable Kubota makes sense.......but.......

If it will sit in your garage most of the time why not rent when you need one.
Buying "cheap" tools never makes financial sense, NEVER!

Run while you still can. Spend the money and get a real tractor. Unless it is a John Deere, Kubota, or New Holland, forget it. They just don't hold up. Dealer support is poor, and forget about getting replacement parts in 10 years.
My vote is Kubota. Which is funny because I grew up with John Deere tractors.
green with envy

Ask your dealer about parts and service. When he looks away and tells you a story you know if it goes down it will be down for a while.
You would be better off buying a used JD, Kubota or New holland.
My 2 cents.
