 Need help deciding on tractor

I'm new to this and not sure what to buy or how much to pay. I live in a hilly area so my only real use is working a 100x200 arena, moving snow and maybe a little dirt or gravel. I already have this disc culti/packer for the arena and need a tractor to fit it. http://www.tartergate.com/switch.php?fn=catalog.details&cod=ATVCPDC&site=tt&emp=tt
The New Holland dealer has a TZ24DA with a loader priced at 14160. with 60 months no interest. Does that sound like a good deal? Massey offered a GC2300 with loader for 11600. with 36 mo no interest and JD suggested a 2320 for 18649. The JD seems like overkill considering where I live and they all offered to do a demo so I'm sure it will do the job. Thanks in advance for the help.

 Need help deciding on tractor

100 X 200 arena I am taking for granted that this is in feet. All you need is a shovel. Just kidding. Your question has been asked many times on tractor point. Most of the people here own different kinds of machines most will tell you bigger is better unless you do not have the space to operate a large machine.
What ever you buy make sure you have an established dealer that will be there in the long run. Good warranty, parts are aviable, and a strong service dept. Play the dealers in order to get the best deal. John Deere is always going to cost more, but they are outstanding machines with a big company. Rule of thumb DEALER, PARTS , SERVICE AND PRICE.
The dealer will be able to answer your questions as to what machine would be best for your useage, most want your return business and are helpfull.

hope this helps.

You forgot the Kubota BX 2350. Retail on the tractor is 10809 with the loader valve and industrial tires and 1988 for the loader less grille gaurd. The first with a sub-compact and the first to bring them to a full CAt 1 three point hitch.

 Need help deciding on tractor

As has been mentioned, stay with a main line brand that has a good dealer network for parts and service later on, no matter what brand you buy they all will need service. With your needs you likely arent going to use a tractor more than a hundred hours a year so maybe finding a used unit at a dealership that will give you a decent warranty on it may be your best choice. Lots of folks do business with E-bay and likely there will be several tractors listed, but that can be kind of risky. Many stolen machines end up there and especially if you have no prior tractor experience you could be taken advantage of by someone selling a lemon. Unless you are in a real hurry take your time and look around a bit. Good luck. Frank.
