I'm bidding on some large commercial property. It's tendered per zone. Each zone is 20 to 40 acres. It's a one year contract with 2, 1 year renewal terms. They're mostly flat and open. When I get them, I will need larger / Wider equipment suitable for large acreages. I'm thinking of going with a small tractor like a John Deere 3000 or 4000 series because those are the largest I believe you can put a mid mount mower on. Also the availability of a full cab would make life more comfortable. A 3 point hitch mounted spreader would also greatly speed up fertilizing. A small tractor would also be useful in other aspects of my business. A large ZT would also be usable on some large residential accounts I have. I know a wide area mower like a John Deere 1600 turbo would eat up the acres but would be limited pretty much to that account. I'm leaning towards the compact tractor right now Anyone using compact tractors for large acreages ? What actual acre per hour production are you getting ? How do you find them for fuel consumption compared to large gas powered ZTs ? Thoughts ?
