Well I don't know about that brand or even John Deere. I have a new holland and it is a TN65 with 57 HP on the PTO to maintain my 20 acres, my camp and anything else. I sometimes find myself wishing I had more HP and 4 wheel drive. I definately would not get a tractor without the front end loader either as that makes the tractor.

used tractor
Look for an auction and buy a good used tractor in teh 60 hp range. Tractors last forever and you're not gonna put a lot of hours on one.

Yanmars don't last and especially if your going to be using it for clearing and to bush hog. Spend a little more and Go green!

to good to be true huh?
I knew them Yanmar were cheap but did not figure them for junk, since they made engines for John Deere. I will most likely go out and buy a used JD, New Holland, Mahindra or something like that.

Yanmar motors are in 50hp and below tractors, while anything above 50hp are made by JD. So get a 60hp

I have a 10 yr old 48 hp ford new holland and it does fine.My buddy has a 43 hp kubota 4wd with front end loader.I feel like the 4wd and front end loader are important. I wish mine was 4wd with the loader .I have not wished for more hp . We do food plots for hunting clubs and individuals all the time . My 2 cents worth .
