    Ive been thinking about getting me a small tractor with a bucket and a tiller for personal use around my own property. This was been a really wet year here after 5-6 years of drought and fields around are full of weeds. The city is telling people they need to mow weeds down or the city will do it for them and bill them. I decided if I get the tractor Ill get a brush hog also and try to make some extra cash with it...for you guys that offer this what do you try to get per hour?
    While Im asking give some recomendations on small tractors. I would love to get a Kabota or JD but was wondering what else out there is good and might not be so steep in price
    Thanks

    I do a bunch of little areas that the big boys with their toys don't want to bother with.
