All the above suggestions are great, and a small tractor can be a real money maker. Make sure you actually spend some time on the SCUT you are considering. I found a couple that my big size 13 work boots could barely fit through the cross over or work the tiny pedals of the hydro drive controls. I bought a 10 year old JD 4010 with 50 hours, so great deals are out there if you have patience. If you are financing, get it with the FEL if that is something you plan to use. Almost every other three point attachment is easily available on the used market.
