Landlegend compact tractor
« on: September 13, 2021, 05:57:26 pm »
Hi,
 i am a retired land lover who is downsizing and will  have just over an acre of land. I was looking at compact tractors and wanted one around 40hp with a front end loader. i went on Friday to look at the landledgend and was impressed. Before i put a deposit on one can you advise what you think of them please. I can see that its been 6 years since they were mentioned on here last.
Many thanks
David.

Hi David

Just my two cents but dependant on the implements you hope to run, I think you might find the horsepower on a compact is a little underwhelming. I plan to buy a machine myself but will go for an older unit with higher horsepower, as it wonít be doing big hours.

Apologies if this response is unhelpful and I canít personally comment on the brand youíve mentioned but i just said wanted to encourage you make sure the machine has enough Ďgruntí to do what you need of it, run what what you want etc.

I have to disagree with PaulStaffs - 1 acre might not even be compact tractor territory !!  And a 40hp tractor is really quite adequate for a whole load of op's on a small acreage.  However .... 

... depends what you want to do @Blosmai.  If you want to churn sod or cut grass regularly, then maybe just keep any big tractor and any Cat 2 implements you might have already. (Many of my neighbours manage really small meadows with their big kit.) 

What is it you want to do on your remaining circa 1 acre please ??
Can't offer comment on Landlegend although I noted, once, that they were advertising a "UK tweaked" Chinese product for the UK market.
