Tractor Mike, of the Ask Tractor Mike Channel on Youtube knows people make this mistake when buying a tractor.
For years he worked in the tractor industry.
Time and time again he saw people buy land, and at the very same time, they would buy their tractor.
DON’T DO THAT!
Tractor mike suggests that when you purchase land, you start thinking about your tractor purchase, but don’t go out and buy your tractor right away.
Tractor Mike suggests “Get out there and see what your needs are. Maintain the acreage a little big. See what you need.”
Once you have a good idea what you need to do and want to do on your property, your local dealer will have a better idea of what you need for your property.
So how big of a tractor should you get?
First, remember Mike says
“You will NEVER in your lifetime say I wish I had bought a smaller tractor!”
So buy the biggest tractor you can afford. Mike suggests that you start looking at tractors that are at least 40 HP, and go up from there.
