If your personal piece of heaven is between one and five acres, your plans can quickly outgrow the capabilities of ordinary yard tractors or lawn and garden tractors. When you need to haul dirt and mulch, mow acres of grass, till a garden or plow snow, a versatile Boomer™ 24 compact tractor can power all the implements you'll need and more. The Boomer 24 is a small tractor, but it can accomplish big things, making it the best compact tractor for the money.
SSL (skid steer loader) refers to the standard wheeled machine. CTL (compact track loader) and MTL (multi-terrain loader) refer to different undercarriage designs. CTLs feature a steel embedded track and steel undercarriage components for maximum life in many applications. MTLs have a rubber track undercarriage that delivers lower ground pressure compared to an SSL and CTL so they don’t tear up the ground as badly.
From the AutoConnect™ Drive Over mower deck to the optional heated cab, the 1 Series is the one. Add a loader, backhoe and blade and you have the perfect mini tractor. In every nut and bolt, you’ll get fine-tuned engineering. The kind you’ll find in only the best small farm tractors. The result is a great sub-compact utility tractor that can double as a riding lawn mower.
I was happy with my $9,000 purchase price, if not a little stunned. Except for our house, which was only possible thanks to a big mortgage, this was the largest single purchase I’d ever made. More than my truck. More than my wife’s car. But auction houses charge additional fees that you need to be mindful of. At the auction I attended, the buyer’s fee was 10 percent for total sales under $1,000 and 1 percent for sales above $1,000. Credit card payments were an additional 2 percent, which I was OK with because I got the equivalent of 3 percent cash back in points and had the dinero to pay it right off – thanks to months of tight living.
Unlike in a conventional front loader, the lift arms in these machines are alongside the driver with the pivot points behind the driver's shoulders. Because of the operator's proximity to moving booms, early skid loaders were not as safe as conventional front loaders, particularly during entry and exit of the operator. Modern skid loaders have fully enclosed cabs and other features to protect the operator. Like other front loaders, it can push material from one location to another, carry material in its bucket or load material into a truck or trailer.
Some models of skid steer now also have an automatic attachment changer mechanism. This allows a driver to change between a variety of terrain handling, shaping, and leveling tools without having to leave the machine, by using a hydraulic control mechanism to latch onto the attachments. Hydraulic supply lines to powered attachments may be routed so that the couplings are located near the cab, and the driver does not need to leave the machine to connect or disconnect those supply lines.
A zero-turn lawn mower is a riding mower that has a zero-turn radius--meaning it spins as opposed to turning like a standard vehicle with front-wheel turning. Basically, these things can turn on a dime. Instead of a steering wheel, most models have levers to control speed to each drive wheel, using a hydraulic-based system. They are considered faster and more efficient than standard riding lawn mowers. Because of this unique feature, they can be more expensive.
Compact tractors are just like other tractors in that they can be used with a variety of different attachments that have various purposes in agricultural and construction situations. Unlike other tractors, however, compact tractors weigh under 4,000 pounds, and they use less than 40 HP, with many using only 20 HP to 30 HP. These specialized tractors run at less than 540 RPM, and they are easier to store and maneuver than traditional tractors.

Who likes dropping or spilling materials? No one. That’s why CASE’s innovative Ride Control™ feature is such a benefit. Just push a button to automatically steady the loader arm when traveling at elevated speeds and the machine automatically compensates with greater shock absorption and reduced loader arm bounce, so you can work faster than ever without spilling your load.
A tractor is a large, heavy duty vehicle with a petrol or diesel motor delivering high torque at a low speed. Tractors are especially indispensable in the world of agriculture, as they can tow implement or machine attachments used for ploughing, tilling, harrowing, planting and feeding, as well as spraying fertilizers and pesticides. Another popular attachment is the hey tedder that allows haymaking. Tractors also have the power to haul large items, and the heavy treads of their rear tyres allow plenty of traction on soft or uneven terrain. The more modern RC tractors can be controlled remotely and some are used to mow like a tractor mower.
An excavator is designed to do one thing well - to dig out trenches, footings, and foundations with ease. Excavators are available in a variety of sizes, from the micro-excavator units that are adept at navigating tight urban or residential areas, to the massive earth-moving units that can scoop thousands of pounds of material in one pass. With the popularity of excavators at an all time high, it pays to understand the differences between competing models. Then, you can make an educated choice on a model that will serve your crew the best.
The sheer range of functions they are capable of makes skid steers highly sought after on the used skid steer loader market. Some skid loaders have an automatic attachment changing mechanism. This function allows the driver to change attachments without leaving the cab of the compact loader, as the hydraulic supply line couplings are located adjacent to the cab, and these can be connected or disconnected with ease. Othe skid steer loaders with an extended reach design are capable of a greater operating height and are able to unload into tall receptacles with ease. Skid steer loaders may even be capable of being used as an excavator; this is particularly useful in height restricted work areas where there may not be sufficient clearance for an excavator boom. If you want greater stability and traction in the worst terrain, then you'll want to check out a track skid steer second-hand market.

The original skid-steer loader arms were designed using a hinge at the rear of the machine to pivot the loader arm up into the air in an arc that swings up over the top of the operator. This design tends to limit the usable height to how long the loader arm is and the height of that pivot point. In the raised position the front of the loader arm moves towards the rear of the machine, requiring the operator to move extremely close to or press up against the side of a tall container or other transport vehicle to get the bucket close enough to dump accurately. At the highest arm positions the bucket may overflow the rear of the bucket and spill directly onto the top of the machine's cab.
