It may not feel like it today, but Spring is just around the corner. planting time will be here before we know it. There’s going to be a lot to do and you’ll need a machine that’s up to the task. From time to time I try to offer a quick comparison between tractors to help you make an informed decision before you fork out your hard earned money on too little of a tractor.
You’ve read it here before, “It doesn’t matter if you have 100 HP if you can’t get traction & your wheels just spin” You need a tractor that is HEAVY. Any other features on a tractor are just going to make your time more enjoyable. We get quite a few folks at our store in middle Tennessee that are interested in comparing Branson tractors to Kioti tractors. Here’s a 35HP match up comparing the specifications and std. features.
