Compact Tractors can mean big utility around the acreage

Compared with your grandpa’s “full-size” utility tractors, today’s compact tractors do more, do it longer, and with more comfort. Bearing a smaller footprint—and price tag—than full-size counterparts, compact tractors have rightfully been a bright spot in the ag equipment industry for some time now. Sales of tractors with around 40 hp have continued to rise year-after-year, while larger equipment sales have been more, er…challenging for manufacturers.

Across the industry, you have choices of open or climate-controlled cabs, two wheel- or mechanical front wheel drive, high-flow hydraulics, buckets and other accessories, along with needed PTOs and 3-point hitches. With the combination of hardworking, heavy-duty utility and less out-of-pocket, it’s no wonder that farms and acreages now depend on this size of utility tractor to accomplish what needs to be done.
