Tractor advise
« on: November 02, 2022, 02:32:56 pm »
Hello 👋

Iíve been told I maybe able to get a grant for a tractor and other things I know what I want.

I have zero idea what is available tractor wise.
I know I want a general use one. 1 thatís smaller and can have attachments to plough, harrow, rolls, cut, turn and bale hay. And I can have a bucket on the front to pick up feeds and hay.

Can I pick brains please as I have no clue and donít want to get this wrong. Thereís zero way Iíll ever be able to afford to buy a tractor unless I win the lottery that I donít play 😜

Sorry I can't help as we drive a little Siromer and an ancient David Brown.  However, if this doesn't pan out, you can do worse than to buy second hand, more likely 4th or 5th hand!
