I've never owned a tractor, and only operated one for a few hours. Our company is in need of a tractor. I've been reading and reading and to be honest it is really confusing. I hope that you guys can chime in and help me out. Our basic needs are loading mulch into our dump trucks, turning the compost piles, bush hogging several properties. These are the main things. Secondary things that would be very helpful would be loading and unloading pallets of rock salt(2500lbs), using a attached snowblower for a couple of properties, trenching irrigation lines, and filling them back in. I'm sure that we will find many other uses day in and day out but these are a few. What do you guys think? (Horse power, brand (I like everything I hear and see about Kubota) attachments and prices I could expect to pay.) Thanks in advance for all of your input.
