    Why exactly are you buying a tractor?

    Primarily to bushhog or as a versatile tool to be used for landscape construction?

    Little tractors like that can be really handy, but they are useless without 4WD. I used to have a grey market (which this Iseki is) 4WD Yanmar with a small loader on it and it would not go anywhere off dry pavement in 2WD. My newer Kioti does a lot better in 2WD but IMO 4WD is still necessary quite a bit of the time.

    4wd and hydrostatic drive are a necessity in a Tractor in my opinion.

    Me personally I love the Kubota L Gran 40 series.The L3940 is a great choice or they make them up too 57 hp in the same relative size.
    It is an expensive purchase but it will do a bunch of work.
    I have had my L3710 since it was new and I have never looked back and second guessed that purchase.Tractors hold there resell value much better than other equipment.
    My Tractor was 18,500 dollars new and they still bring 13k to 17k used.It is a 2001 year model.

    I have used the smaller tractors but I prefer the L series.

    Looks like it would do okay for traction on flat ground, I would take that front weight off. It's hard to find these little tractors sounds like a good price for the hours.
