The most common use of the term "tractor" is for the vehicles used on farms. The farm tractor is used for pulling or pushing agricultural machinery or trailers, for ploughing, tillage, harrowing, planting, and similar tasks.
To begin your search for a tractor perfect for your needs you need to consider your land, the enterprise run on it and what tasks are done daily when choosing the right tractor and the right set of implements for your operation. But it’s not simply a matter of taking these factors into consideration. The weight of the tractor itself also comes into play along with the gearing and power. It is very important to get the right size tractor – if a tractor has more power than you need the engine will go unused and could therefore prevent the machine from running correctly.
Small tractors (up to 100hp) would be most widely used on small farms for jobs including grass cutting and hauling small trailers, medium tractors (100-200hp) would be your multipurpose work horse, completing tasks from simple grass and hedge cutting to trailer work and field and cultivation. The larger tractors (250hp+) would be primarily used in the field pulling large cultivators, ploughs and drills etc. perfect for big acreage farms or contractors.
Ellis Machinery supply well-known brands include John Deere, New Holland, Massey Ferguson, Case, Claas and Fendt. These large manufacturers provide a wide range of machines from small grass cutting tractors to 500HP tracked monsters.
Tractor maintenance includes regularly checks of the machine as a whole, specifically the oil and filters. It is good to keep up with regular checks as this can prevent expensive major damage developing.
Ellis Machinery also supply ATV’s (All-terrain vehicles), perfect to carry personal and tools around your farm carrying out odd jobs and maintenance.
Other useful vehicles around the farm are telehandlers and excavators for all the lifting, loading and carrying jobs that crop up every day. Ellis Machinery’s range includes some useful mid-range machinery that will help you complete tasks more efficiently.
