Such a list is determined SOLELY by the jobs that you need to accomplish. In fact, that list should be made LONG before a tractor purchase decision is made.

A tractor can do NOTHING by itself. It is only the mobile power plant for the implements that you require. For this reason, determine the implements that you need and then purchase the correct tractor that will operate those implements.

Good luck,
Doc

A backhoe, a backhoe and ... ...oh yeah, a backhoe.

A trencher would be nice as well but I wouldn't use it that often and a backhoe can do some trenching in a pinch.

I currently have a 5 ft tiller, an auger, a bush hog along with a loader on my John Deere 755. I would like to add a backhoe and a 72 in mower.
