Hi all, I am in looking for some tractor advice.
We are looking to add another tractor to our farm in the 65-90 PTO hp range (preferable used). We are hoping for something that can lift our water wheel and carousel transplanter, pull at least a 3 or 4 bottom plow and be geared slow enough, with or without a creeper gear to operate the transplanters. I would like some reasonable ground clearance, somewhat narrow tires (which of course is mostly unrelated to the model tractor) and ability to have tires at 72" on center. 2 or 4 wheel drive.
So what I am wondering is when you go out to do something, what is the tractor you hope the implement you are about to use is hooked up to? What is the tractor that you think "that is the best piece of equipment I have bought for the farm"? Of course, if you have a second favorite tractor that is indispensable I would be interested in knowing what that one is as well.
Any info that you want mention about that particular favorite tractor regarding options or just what makes it your favorite, would be appreciated.
Thank you for your time!
