Choosing the right Tractor

To begin your search for a tractor perfect for your needs you need to consider your land, the enterprise runs on it and what tasks are done daily when choosing the right tractor and the right set of implements for your operation. But it’s not simply a matter of taking these factors into consideration. The weight of the tractor itself also comes into play along with the gearing and power.  It is very important to get the right size tractor – if a tractor has more power than you need the engine will go unused and could, therefore, prevent the machine from running correctly.

Small tractors (up to 100hp) would be most widely used on small farms for jobs including grass cutting and hauling small trailers, medium tractors (100-200hp) would be your multipurpose workhorse, completing tasks from simple grass and hedge cutting to trailer work and field and cultivation. The larger tractors (250hp+) would be primarily used in the field pulling large cultivators, ploughs and drills etc. perfect for big acreage farms or contractors.

Tractor maintenance includes regular checks of the machine as a whole, specifically the oil and filters. It is good to keep up with regular checks as this can prevent expensive major damage developing.
