I have searched through threads and found information but not direct help in resolving my issue. What should I buy, a tractor or a skid steer? Here is some back ground on me and my issue. I am fairly handy, remodeling houses and minor car work. My use for this is I am getting ready to have my dream house built on my newly purchased 5.5 acres of mature forest on semi-rolling terrain. I do not plan on using the equipment to build my house. However, I would like to put up a barn, put in a pool, and do extensive landscaping and snow clearing in the future. so, that being said, here are a few questions.
- Tractor with loader or skid steer?
- New or used?
- Attachements? Any issues with getting used attachements later for either?
Oh, and for reference I am considering a new Kubota L3400 so that should give you an idea on the size and capability of the equipment I’m looking for.
-If I learned from all my mistakes I would be Einstein by now.
