I currently live on about 5 acres, with few trees, mostly slightly slopped flat land, I am looking at a compact chinese tractor "farm Pro" in the 2WD, 20HP model,with PS and turf tires. mostly to be used for mowing, however I would like to do a little stuff like dig a small pond, and construct a back stop for a shooting range. I was thinking of the tractor, finish mower, tiller and front loader, would get to a good start and possibly a rear blade. What are your thoughts..I am looking for any info I can get, this is all new to me. PS...Thanks for the site and the great info I have found thus far.
Ferol

I'd really urge you to get 4WD, especially with a loader.

thanks for the info on the upgrade to 4WD, one thing I forgot..can these compacts dig with the front end loader?

I had planned on tilling the ground first then use the loader to move the soil..?

Loaders aren't really designed for digging, but for scooping, lifting, and dumping. If you till the soil first you are more scooping than digging so it won't be a problem. You can use the loader to dig some, but you have to be careful. It's easy to shock load the loader and either bend something or blow the seals out of the cylinders. A toothbar helps a lot when digging. I suppose everyone who has a loader has used it to dig from time to time, but that's not what it's designed for.

When you load up a loader bucket weight pivots forward around the front axle and tends to unload the driving rear tires - this is why 4WD is important with a loader.

If you plan on building a pond, tilling and following with the FEL would take up a considerable amount of time in most soil conditions. You would be taking a few inches at a time. Do you have rocky or gravely soil?
How many acres of grass are you planning on mowing?

Just to clarify, Farm Pro also has parts and labor included on their warranty, they may have an added advantage if there is a dealer nearby to assist in servicing, if not they operate much the same as Northern, paying a local shop to do the warranty work. Extended warranties are available from Farm Pro, in our case we use FailSafe for extended coverage on all of our tractor lines.

Currently I mow a little over 3.5 acres of lawn, about 1/2 acre of field grass..plan on seeding this though.
I'm in no rush to get the pond finished, kinda like a little busy work, and help get used to running the tractor.
Im a full-time firefighter with a good number of days off,(work about 10 days a month) (24 hr shift).
I would like to get a larger property, mostly for a little more shooting range distance. (former deputy of 10 yrs).

I have been looking at the Farm-Pro largely due to cost, at the Homier tool sales, for a little more they offer an extended warranty etc. But I looked at some new "lawn tractors" Sears, JD, etc. for just a little more I can get a compact tractor. The only tractor I have ever ran is an old 8N ford about 15 years ago. I guess its PTO was not live, everytime I stepped on the clutch the blade on the rear would drop.. Whats with the 540 / 1000 RPM PTO ???

My soil is fairly "clean" dirt, havent ran into hardly any gravel or rock.

thanks again everyone.

My suggestion is if I was anywhere close to Chip thats where I'd buy my tractor. He will help guys like me that bought from someone with no support so imagine if you bought it from him. I'm gonna trade up someday and when I do I'm going to Chip. He sells lots of brands so I'm sure he can find just the right tractor for your needs.

Wow, thanks for the kind words Mike. I saw on another thread your steering is still not 100%, it should be with the light fluid so we need to look at some other things, I'll post that on the other thread.

I will not sell the 2WD Turf Tire Farm Pro with a loader. In fact we imported some 204 3cylinder Jinmas to offer in place of that model. Its a little more money but a much better solution for the reasons others have mentioned. The turf tire Farm Pro has no wheel weights, turf tires don't provide much traction, but if you are going to use it on your lawn, the 4WD turf is going to do better than 2WD with the loader.
We are in Arkansas, I guess not to terribly far depending on the part of Kansas FerolO is.
