It is hard to buy a small tractor...

It is hard to buy a small tractor now days...within a small budget.

First off you are wondering why does he need a tractor.

The first is I plow snow with it.

I also pull out the occasional traveler that had a bad time navigating our slippery roads.

I cut fire wood.

I can prepare my garden with it.

I grade and level off my non-paved driveway.

I haul things in the bucket.

I lift heavy items.

and so on.


I don't use it every day but it comes in very handy.


So there are a lot of tractors out there.

Yes, but I don't need to spend $20,000 for one that is smaller than mine.

I can find them on my price range but they are very large and not in as big of a need.

It used to be that every small town had 1 or 2 farm stores, now there is one in every 4-5 towns

and the inventory is limited in the small tractors I want.


Tonight, I looked at 6,000+ listings on craigs list and found nothing.

But, I know one day one will show up, and I will be there right away with my cash!

mFor folks in rural areas, I can see a tractor like that one would be a very handy thing.

Bill, you are right, competition for these is stiff at times.

I wonder if it is like most things - you see plenty when you are not in the market and very few when you are ready to buy. Hopefully the right one will come along at the right price shortly.
