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!
