So, You Think You Need a Tractor?
For those who grew up with them, tractors may seem like an essential, non-negotiable piece of equipment for any type of farming. And at a certain scale of production it's hard to argue with that conclusion.
But if you practice scaled down farming (sometimes called "Hobby Farming") a tractor may be an extravagant expense when you consider how much you can accomplish with an ATV or UTV...especially if you already own one for recreational uses.
Our ATV Attachment headquarters features a range of towable equipment that can be used for mowing, trimming, grading, tilling, cultivating, hauling and more. This gear is quick to set up (no PTO and/or 3-point hitch setups to mess with), and you can drive it places that you would never take a tractor-into the woods, onto steep slopes, or over rough terrain.
So before you take out a second mortgage and queue up 4-5 years of tractor payments, think through whether that's a necessary expense. Even if you own a tractor, there are some tasks that are just plain easier (and faster) with lighter equipment.
