Perhaps the most important thing to figure out is why you need a tractor. Thinking through the tasks you’ll need to complete with your tractor helps in deciding what size tractor you’ll need. If you are wanting a tractor for small jobs like mowing your lawn, a John Deere 1 series tractor is probably the way for you to go, but if you are wanting to do large jobs like hauling heavy materials, a 4 series tractor would be more fit for your tasks. It is also important to consider how much power and strength you are needing your tractor to have. The larger the series number gets, the greater the tractor’s working capacity is.
Knowing the size and demands of the property where you will be using your tractor, goes a long way in helping decide which tractor you should buy. Some of the tractors such as the 1 and 2 series are great for maneuvering in small properties that are 1-2 acres of land because they are the smallest of John Deere’s compact utility tractors. The 3 and 4 series tractors are great for managing large properties with anywhere from 3- 15 acres of land. These are built for more heavy-duty work that often goes with maintaining large pieces of land such as cleaning heavy brush.
After figuring out which tractor size best fits your needs, it's time to think about how much you can afford to spend.
