At that point, I hit tractorhouse.com and tractordata.com to see what the specific models had sold for recently with similar hours. (Hours on tractors are like miles on a car, and are noted with the make and model on most auction listings.) I ran the makes and models through Craigslist, too, and did a general Google search with the terms “for sale” tacked on. A 2015 post on the L3750 on tractorbynet.com without the backhoe and fewer hours went for $13,900. Other posts said $10,000-plus in decent condition and an ad from Pennsylvania with nearly identical hours and no backhoe listed for $13,500. I made a mental note that, if there weren’t any problems with the actual machine, I wouldn’t spend more than $11,000.

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.
Can you dig it? Add an excavator to your repertoire and you have the hydraulic-powered muscle to tackle an incredible range of tasks. These powerful machines, manufactured by the likes of Caterpillar and Bobcat, make short work of trench-digging and forestry work, and by shopping the huge inventory on eBay you have the opportunity to pick a make and model that fits your requirements and budget.

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.

Excavators (hydraulic) are heavy construction equipment consisting of a boom, dipper (or stick), bucket and cab on a rotating platform known as the "house".[1] The house sits atop an undercarriage with tracks or wheels. They are a natural progression from the steam shovels and often mistakenly called power shovels. All movement and functions of a hydraulic excavator are accomplished through the use of hydraulic fluid, with hydraulic cylinders and hydraulic motors.[2] Due to the linear actuation of hydraulic cylinders, their mode of operation is fundamentally different from cable-operated excavators which use winches and steel ropes to accomplish the movements.[3]
25HP-55HP compact 4WD tractors powered with fuel-efficient engines, showcasing superior performance and maneuverability in addition to lower emissions, noise and vibration. Available in various chassis sizes, these tractors are tailored to landowners, small farmers (typically 30 acres or less) and commercial users. Each model includes more standard features and boasts superior performance at a lower price than the competition.
A robotic mower is an autonomous mower that operates within a defined set of boundaries to mow a yard. Wire boundaries frame the desired mow area (the yard) and the robotic mower operates continuously within that area, mowing the lawn until you turn it off. They are generally designed for smaller areas, but some newer models are showing increased mow area capabilities. They are awesome if you don’t have the time (or desire) to do it yourself.
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.

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.


The cost of new equipment can be quite steep but browsing online you will find a wide selection of used skid steer loaders for sale. Second-hand skid steers, which are well looked-after, are likely to give you years of trouble-free service, as this vehicle is designed to be particularly robust to cope with all the heavy duty demands placed upon it. If you are searching for skidsteer loaders for sale, taking a look at online auctions & the inventory of used machinery traders gives you the opportunity to compare prices and get a grasp of what is available in the used skid steer market.

On their own, compact tractors are powerful engines with wheels that can go pretty much wherever you want them to go. When they are combined with extra equipment, however, their power increases greatly. Most compact tractors have loaders on the front, which feature two parallel arms with connectors on the ends. Some of the following accessories attach to these loaders, and others attach to the back or the bottom of the tractor.

I bought my Kubota L3750 in August 2016, at Empire Farm Days. It’s the largest agricultural trade show in the Northeast. This happens to be an hour or so from our new homestead and start-up chicken farm in upstate New York. We had owned our property almost a year, and soon as we moved in I starting thinking about tractors. My aim was something big enough to manage food plots, handle firewood, and clear brush. In the L3750 I have that, and I hope what I learned along the way can help other greenhorn farmers and homesteaders make that first tractor purchase.
