 What tractor do you recomend and what size

I have just bought 12 acres. I am looking at purchasing a tractor to do the work on it, but I am not sure what type or size would be best. I am going to be pulling a brush hog, do some hay cutting, and other general work. I am on a budget, so I am looking for a used model. What would anyone recommend ?

 What tractor do you recomend and what size

If you're planning to use a big round baler then a compact is out of the picture, they take an 80 to 120 HP tractor. For 12 acres why not hire the baling done and get a smaller (60 HP)used farm tractor to do the mowing, raking, bale moving, and your loader work. A compact tractor just is'nt big enough to move big rounds. Something on the order of a 3010 Deere or 656 Farmall with a 3pt. hitch depending on condition could run you anywhere from 5 to 7000.00. A good used loader with a hydraulic bucket would run you from 8-1500.00. Have a great day, Frank.
