I waited. “8-5, in the back, can I get 8-5?” I raised my card. “9, 9, can I get 9?” Overalls was on the ropes. “8-7-5, $8,750, what do you say? Nice Kubota. Very nice Kubota. 8-7-5.” Overalls bid, that son of a gun. “9, can I get a –” I shot my card up. “$9,500, up front, what do you say?” Overalls was shaking his head no. “With the backhoe, a great deal at 9-5, 9-5,” Overalls kept shaking no. He was out. “In the back, $9,000, going once, going twice, SOLD!”
Excavators are a valuable tool in a wide range of applications, from digging trenches and preparing foundations on construction sites, to driving in piles on a farm. Clear snow in poor weather, dredge rivers, or demolish existing structures as part of a clearing operation. Access to a John Deere or Komatsu digger makes many projects easier, helping you to keep to deadlines and improve overall workforce efficiency. While most excavators have tracks, it is also possible to get wheeled models, which may be more suitable in certain working environments, especially if you need to drive between work sites on main roads or require extra maneuverability.
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.

22HP and 25HP sub-compact 4WD tractors powered with fuel-efficient engines with 2 range Hydrostatic transmission. Sub-compact chassis allows maneuvering in small, confined spaces and are designed for maximum versatility with available front end loader, mid-mount mower and backhoe--all of which can be attached to the tractor at the same time. These tractors are tailored for small landowners, horse stall owners and commercial users. Each model includes more standard features and boasts superior performance at a lower price than the competition.

Tractor paid for, and loaded on to Kyle’s trailer, I called my wife. After a brief “conversation” about the home renovations all that cash could cover, the tractor was dropped off at Phelps’ garage. Rather than me figuring the machine out, I had Bill give it a once over, replace all the fluids, the few bad hoses, straighten the bent loader bucket, and re-pack that leaky swing arm cylinder. There was a new battery, too, and a few other things, which rung up to $1,500 or $500 more than I had anticipated before I started bidding.

Comfort is a prerequisite to look for when purchasing a tractor, since the vehicle is used by farmers to do strenuous work such as hauling. Comfortable tractors are furnished with various features and capabilities that make them easy to use and manage while effectively performing their farm operations. Tractors are custom made and ensure comfort so that operators can work for longer periods without straining. The larger the operator's property, the more a comfortable tractor is required. A comfortable tractor is also multifunctional as it can haul, dig, lift, and pull heavy things.
