Welcome to the TractorPoint family of Tractor enthusiasts! We love Tractors but you will find that we have other topics of great interest also.

Buyers of Compact Tractors have a great selection before them, albeit perhaps at much bigger prices then they may have anticipated. By the time you slap a mower, a back blade, box scraper, Brush cutter, Snowblower, or loader on you have racked up a considerable pile of the Green stuff.

The Tractor implements listed above will run you about 8 big ones. Ouch! You still don't have the tractor. But don't worry Tractor Manufacturers are offering rebates and great finance rates right now!

If you buy on the small end of the Compact Tractor spectrum, you might be surprised when you go out to rent that Overseeder you needed this past season. Why because the Tractor Rental Company usually your tractor dealer, may tell you they only carry implements sized for 30+ hp Tractors capable of lugging the bigger implements around. So for those big jobs your Compact Tractor won't cut it, you'll have to get a larger Tractor lugged to your site which could run you about $250 per day for the Tractor plus the cost of the implement.

Well that's not so bad. You'll be getting plenty of use out of the Compact Tractor you bought provided you have determined what you will be using the Tractor for most of the time. In fact you will find it much cheaper to contract out the hard stuff to a guy with a dozer for stumping and serious excavation, it just depends on how much time you want to spend, and how much of a beating you want to give your Tractor.

The most popular Compact Tractor brands are John Deere, Kubota, and New Holland. The Kubota Tractor is very quiet, Deere Compact Tractors come with a Yanmar heritage, modified with some of John Deere great quick attachment features. The New Holland Compact Tractor is a Shibaura variant and has a great line of machines that pack a bunch of HP in a small Tractor package. There are many other brands of Tractor equipment out there, and in fact almost all of them will beat out a wheel barrow and a hand mower any day. Have fun shopping, and seek help from your fellow TractorPoint Members.
