Whether you own a small acreage or a large farm or ranch, a tractor is a must-have tool for tackling many day-to-day tasks. Today’s tractors take advantage of technology tools such as GPS and data-gathering sensors to increase productivity, conserve fuel and other resources, and keep track of maintenance needs or schedules.
A tractor is a self-propelled vehicle, equipped with wheels or tracks. The agricultural tractor, in its most classic form, has four wheels, with the large diameter wheels in the rear and the smaller diameter front wheels used to steer the machine. Two-wheel drive tractors are becoming increasingly rare. Tractors are generally divided into several classes based on the work they’re designed to perform, such as mowing, loader work, disking and other field preparation, or planting. Most purchase decisions will start based on horsepower or engine power, but there are many other factors to consider.
Less-than-40 horsepower tractors are designed for small operations and tasks such as mowing, tilling, or basic garden or farm work. 40- to 99-horsepower tractors include many compact and utility-type machines meant for small to midsized farming tasks. 100- to 174-horsepower tractors are capable of handling the tasks of midsize and some large farms. 175-horsepower or greater tractors can handle virtually any large agriculture or construction task, pulling the heaviest implements or loads with ease. Keep in mind, if you’re comparing used tractors from several manufacturers based on horsepower, some manufacturers quote gross horsepower while others will rate tractors based on power take-off (PTO) horsepower, so make sure the horsepower ratings are consistent.
