Maybe you have finally purchased your dream acreage, or you are an established farmer looking for some new muscle to help out with heavy tasks around the farm. If you are looking for tractors for sale in BC, you have many options to choose from!
When looking for a new tractor, there are a few things that you need to consider, including the size of your property and terrain, among your other requirements. The best thing to do is make a list of all the jobs you expect your tractor to do, and perhaps some luxury items that would be a nice add-in to your purchase.
Tractor size is probably the most important factor to consider. If all you need is to mow and move some light materials, think 35 HP or less. Or if you are into some serious farming, you might want to consider 50HP or larger. It’s generally a good idea to get a little more horsepower than you think is required for your tasks. If you get the bare minimum amount of power your machine will be under constant strain and is more likely to break down. In the other extreme, you don’t want to go overboard and purchase a massive machine that may be too much tractor for your property. The balance between power, size and maneuverability is delicate and requires some serious consideration!
Beyond the size of your machine, consider also its fuel efficiency, adaptability and impact on the environment. Having a big tractor is great for tackling those heavy jobs around the farm, but what will your fuel costs be at the end of the day?
A tractor is nothing but untapped power until it is paired with job-specific implements. So your next consideration is what tools you need for your property. Cutters, scrapers, tillers, spreaders and buckets are just some of the many options available to you. For more examples, click here!
