Tractor Buying Guide 2020

Buying a tractor for your farm is not as easy as it sounds. It is an intimidating task to find the right tractor for your farm because you want to buy a tractor that fulfills all your needs but, with a specific budget, that’s why we have come up with a list of things that will help you make the right decision.

There are several things you need to consider while trying to purchase the ideal tractor. Before saying “DEAL DONE” on a tractor purchase, we’ve gathered a few critical questions for you to ask yourself. When you consider these questions first, you’re sure to get a tractor that will suit all your needs.

Tractor Tasks:

The first question that you should ask yourself is, what operations do you need to do with the tractor? Numerous tasks can be done by tractor, such as transporting, seeding, harvesting, mowing, grading, landscaping, moving products, snow removal, spraying, plowing, and many more.

Not all tractors are the same, some tractors could do certain tasks better and some cannot plus different tractor accessories are required for specific tasks. Not only does the performance of a tractor matter, but the size of the tractor matters too, so ask yourself, “what size of a tractor will be the best fit for you?”

Make a list of tasks you’d like your tractor to perform and if the list turns out to be a long one with hardcore tasks, consider the powerful tractor which will help you in completing your tasks efficiently and, it will be worth the money spent, but if your farm is small and the list of your tractor tasks is short then opt for a small tractor, it will save your time and your money.

Land Criteria and tractor features:

The second question to ask yourself when purchasing a tractor is, which type of tractor will accommodate the condition of the land that you have and what tractor features are required?

 Different tractors have different features like 2-wheel or 4-wheel drive, different torque power, lifting capability, type of suspension, brakes, steering and horsepower.

You also have to look at your land terrain as if it is more susceptible to muddy side or hard surface as some tractors work best on deep muddy grounds and some work better on firm ground.

If your land is swampy, then select a powerful tractor with more HP, torque and, high suspension because you will need more power to work through these fields.

You should know your land and climate before buying a tractor if you don’t want to regret your decision.

Tractor Operating:

Another question that you should consider while buying a tractor is, whether you or your employee know how to run a tractor? Because operating a tractor is an art in itself and bear in mind that the scale, height, and control of the transmission of each tractor can have a very different feel to it so find a tractor that you or your employee could handle or if you want a tractor that you don’t know how to operate, take some time to learn on how to use it and then make your purchase.

Choosing a tractor company:

Now you’ve looked through your tractor tasks, land, and its working, the big question comes which company is providing the best tractors.

We’ve got a suggestion for you, Massey Ferguson tractors. Massey Ferguson tractors are world-renowned tractors that come in different models with different features to cater to your needs. You will have a list of options, to select from like if you want a powerful tractor, choose MF-375 or MF-385 and, for small farms, choose MF-350 or MF-290.

Before purchasing your tractor, go through all of the above questions and we are sure that these will guide you in making the right decision which, will help you fulfill all your requirements.
