Hiring Tractor Implements
« on: August 27, 2011, 09:57:57 pm »
Does anyone know whether smallholder sized tractor implements can be hired?

I have an old tractor and want to cultivate some new ground. The minimum I will need will be a subsoiler and a plough (1 or 2 furrow). The cost of these (secondhand) seems prohibitive considering these will be one-off jobs and I may never need them again.

Obviously I can resell once I have finished with them but there is always a chance I may lose a lot of money on them. I would much rather hire the kit I need for a day or two. I have seen farm sized ploughs available to hire but I only need a narrow strip cultivated.

TIA.

hss     used to hire landscaping implements  for small and compact tractors
you will need a lot more implements than a plough and subsoiler     cultivator/discs/harrow and a roller      but all depends on what you are going to do with the land after
you can eliminate the plough if you spray with roundup = no weeds /grass or roots  just soil that a garden rotovator could easily cope with :farmer:
