Great looking farm TC!
Mr. Bill I feel the same way about my tractors. From my experience, if buying a new tractor, its worth paying a little more to have good dealer support nearby. If buying used, get a name brand, mostly because of parts availability and resale value. A bucket (loader) is well worth the additional expense.

You have lot going on.

Oh the loader is a definite must (and a fairly big one to be able to handle forking heavy loads, I know it's gonna cost me.)

And will probably need to start with a bush hog, and then I have to decide if a trencher is worth it and in the budget. Post hole digger maybe. Chipper shredder? Backhoe is tempting too. But I expect the budget will be for loader/fork attachment and the bush hog to start.

I love pallets for building chicken houses and siding on sheds.

Congrats TC... Just remember to be careful around the bucket, you don't want to kick it.

My Parents used to own 13 acres on Wekiva River Rd, surrounded on three sides by rock springs run state reserve. In a lot of ways I wished we still owned it, as my family helped "settle" that part of Florida when the railroad went through. It's beautiful country out there.

Wish I was your neighbor - I would go halves in a tractor/loader and all the required attachments with you.

I agree, a tractor with a front end loader, is almost worth it's weight in gold....... a 3 point hitch PTO mower is the next item needed for 10 acres, after that is a tiller, and a post hole digger, then you can really get creative from there, depending on what you are doing... a gravel washer, etc.......

If you get a loader on a tractor please get a 4wd tractor. Last year I traded in my 2 year old 2wd tractor on a 4wd because I got tired of getting stuck. Don't make the same mistake I did, buy the right one the first time, it will save you money.

We call that a slasher here down under :)

It sounds much more manly than "mower"

what ever tractor and loader you get, make sure it has a shuddle shifter to change derections. when you are using the loader you don't have to change gears, just flip the lever. best wheel barrow you will ever own. Good luck Jerry
