If you are researching tractor brands, you are already aware of how important this piece of machinery is to the success of your operation. There are many brands of small farm tractors available for sale in the U.S., and it’s a good idea to choose from those that are easily accessible.
You’ll want to look closely at your choices in person, understand the add-ons that are available, and find a convenient place to have your tractor serviced before you decide.
The newest generation of small farm tractors is versatile, comfortable, technologically advanced, and has many options. Farm tractor manufacturers focus on creating user-friendly, comfortable, and powerful machines that consistently serve the needs of lawn mowing companies, farmers, property maintenance companies, and road departments.
The Best Hitch for a Small Farm Tractor
Small farm tractors are compatible with different types of add-on implements. There are three categories, depending on the size of the tractor, to choose from.
Cat-0 implements, created to work with the sub-compact farm tractors with horsepower ratings in the teens and 20s, are light duty and can be hard to find. You won’t have as many options with Cat-0 implements.
Standard implements are compatible with a Cat-1 hitch and are readily available on the used market. This is great if you want to get a great deal on implements later on. They use a 7/8” lower arm pin and are common on small farm tractors across many brands.
High-horsepower implements may use a Cat-2 hitch with a 1-1/8” lower arm pin. For heavy-duty use, Cat-2 is a good choice. There is some compatibility between these options, as well. Adapter sleeves make using a lighter duty implement on a bigger tractor easy.
