Is your tractor not performing as it used to? Is it overheating? Blowing smoke? Issues like these may indicate it’s time for an engine rebuild. You may think that replacing it with another engine that works is the easiest solution, but the costs of rebuilding your engine tend to be vastly cheaper than replacing it. Especially if you can do some of the work yourself. After you've properly identified your engine model and verified there is no damage preventing you from rebuilding your engine, it's time to shop for your engine rebuild kit.
Buying Your First Antique Tractor: Choosing the Right One
For the first-time buyer, an antique tractor is very tempting. They typically cost less than the tax on a new tractor. They have the weight to do the job. They are simple and understandable. They even have a history and can be restored to become a major source of pride and enjoyment. But how do you know what to buy and how do you make the right purchase?
When buying a tractor, most farmers know the make, model, and specifications they need for their operation. If not, considering things like terrain and attachment needs are a good place to start. Thorough research is key in avoiding the wrong purchase. Once you have located a tractor, you should always inspect it thoroughly before you buy or bid on one at a farm equipment auction. Use our tractor inspection tips as a general guideline and be ready to find the tractor you need.
Farmers need a good baler to harvest hay successfully. These machines are designed to quickly gather your harvest and create bales that you can easily move from your field to where they are needed on your property. Nowadays, there are many baler options to choose from and you’ll want to ensure you’re selecting the correct equipment for the needs of your operation.
Buying any equipment can be challenging. It takes research and a reasonable amount of time to find what you need within your budget. Finding an excellent second-hand skid steer, for instance, can be even more difficult. The task can be overwhelming and frustrating with so many outlets to find used skid steers — local dealers, live and online auctions, and fellow producers looking to make an upgrade.
Instead of new, buying used equipment can be an intelligent way to reduce investment costs and increase profit margins. With used equipment comes uncertainty and the unknown can be scary and costly.
Planters are a valuable asset, but not everyone can afford a brand-new planter as they command a very high price tag in the neighborhood of $300,00 or more. That’s where used planting equipment becomes the most viable option for many producers.
Many used models still have plenty of life left and, if taken care of, are just as good as new. You’ll get all the performance you need but at a much more affordable price. If you are researching used planters for sale, use the below tips to make your search process more manageable.
