Acreage Tractor

tractor mowing with a reliable acreage tractor

An acreage tractor used for acreage mowing is a rather important piece of equipment and thus, when purchasing one, great care and deliberation should be taken. This article should help you. We are Keith’s Tractor Mowing, serving the Greater Fort Worth area.  Give us a call if you would like more information about the acreage tractor we favor in our daily work.

Let’s look at several criteria to consider when looking for an acreage tractor:

  • Horsepower
  • Usage
  • Attachments
  • Covered/not covered
  • Versatility
  • And, of course, cost

Horsepower

You need an acreage tractor that has the power to do the job you need to do.  Usually horsepower between 45-75 hp will be able to handle most jobs you need the tractor for.

Usage

What are you using the tractor for?  Lot mowing?  Enforcement mowing? Pipeline mowing? Large field mowing?  Is the ground you are mowing relatively flat, or are there hills?  Not all mowers are the same, so make sure you are considering a mower which can handle the job it is purchased for.

Attachments

An acreage tractor is quite often used for more than just mowing.  Can it handle a brush hog?  Can it handle land clearing? Can it tow small logs off a piece of property?  Again,  what are you using it for and can it handle the attachments you might need?

Covered/not covered

This may be a game-changer.  If you live in an area where the weather is often inclement, you must give serious consideration to at least having a covered  cab if not a fully-enclosed cabb.

Versatility

We at Keith’s Tractor Mowing are called upon to handle a variety of jobs for a variety of customers.  We prefer to use a tractor mower which handles a wide array of jobs.

Cost

New or used? Big or small?  You are looking at a wide range of tractor costs.  One can expect to find a reliable used acreage tractor for $5,000.  One can expect to pay upwards of $25,000 for a new acreage tractor.  How’s your budget?
