I've been looking in to buying a tractor, instead of renting, but definitely want something big enough to move a pallet of sod or mulch around on the jobsite. I was told that the Kubota MX4700 with a LA844 would do it, but I'm a little doubtful. I don't need to unload from the semi trailer, just move it around after it's put on the ground. Our sod pallets weigh between 1800 and 2400 pounds. A friend of mine had a L4400 model and said he kept blowing out wheel bearing from picking up sod, so he changed over to a skid steer. Does anyone use a tractor to move sod? If so, have you had any issues from the tractor moving that much weight?
