Are the used tractors in good shape?
Used farm equipment is similar to a nice pair of shoes. They’ll each gain some miles but if they are properly taken care of, their value will last for years to come. We just so happen to search out newer models in good shape so we can sell them straight to you! We approve each tractor’s condition to ensure it’s up to our standard, and our standard is pretty high here at Eis Implement.
Each tractor has a fixed lifespan attached to it, meaning we know when its time will run out. The number of hours it can be used determines when it will start wearing down. We take this into consideration when it comes to price, so be sure to ask!
Should I buy a used tractor or a brand new tractor?
While there is no definite answer, there are a couple of questions you can ask yourself to determine if you should buy a new or used tractor.
What does your budget look like? This may seem like a black and white question, but there are a couple more things to consider beyond just the maximum cost you would pay for a tractor. For example, are you planning on buying multiple pieces of ag equipment? If so, buying used allows you to spread your budget out, giving you more options.
How frequently do you plan on using it? If you only harvest seasonal crops such as fruits or vegetables, your farm equipment will only be in regular use for a portion of the year. This cuts down your need for available hours, making used tractors a prime candidate for your operation’s budget. Used tractors are also great to have on standby as Plan B for big operations, allowing you to keep working even if a piece of equipment breaks down.
What features are you wanting to incorporate into your operation? Do these features align with any of the used tractors for sale in your area? Newer tractors offer more advanced features that allow you to increase precision and efficiency in every job. Whether it’s to make connecting implements easier or for adding automation, John Deere is constantly innovating and adding new features onto its tractors.
What operation are you running? Are you looking to do some landscaping work around your property, or are you working on a farm startup? Oftentimes, used equipment is a great solution for startup farms because of many loan requirements and the amount of equipment needed. Of course, every operation is different, so do some research on your personal requirements.
There are a couple of options to upgrade used tractors, too. By implementing precision ag tools, you are given access to various data management and steering system options, bringing more productivity to your operation.
