Buying Landscape Equipment – A Compact Tractor For Your Garden

We all know that a compact tractor can do just about anything you want it to do, but what about the landscaping equipment? This type of equipment comes in many varieties including the landscaping rake, backhoe, landscaping clawfoot, a snow pusher, a cultivator, a front end loader, and many more. The list goes on.

Meet quick hitch, broom, and weed killer-the most advanced landscaping tools ever invented. This landscaping equipment has a very useful hook & loop strap so you can easily secure it to your vehicle, and also it comes with an electric powered whip. You’ve probably seen these in some of those old movies where the guy plucks all the weeds with his toe. That’s a quick hitch and weed killer attachment for your compact tractor.

The next line up in landscaping tools is the lawn mower and trimmer. These are more popular than you think. In addition to cutting grass and yard debris these types of equipment also mow the yard and clear up the snow. I would suggest that if you are in the market for a trimmer that you purchase one with a cord. Trimmers are only useful if you need to move it across the lawn.

A backhoe is another very useful piece of equipment to have around. While not as big as some of the other tools available, a backhoe is still quite heavy and difficult to maneuver. This is great for clearing out large areas of ground. If you are not going to be doing a lot of digging a compact tractor with a backhoe is the way to go.

Last but certainly not least is the landscaping fork. This piece of equipment is used to dig up dirt and loosen up the soil. Many people choose to put a septic tank attached to their landscaping fork so they can easily add the soil when the fork is full. There are many more equipment options available in the landscaping tools department but this should get you started. Just remember to always wear safety glasses when operating any kind of construction machinery. It’s just common sense.

Now that you know what a landscape rake and a compact tractor are for, you are probably wondering how you can go about buying a lawn tractor. Well the first place I would check is your local farm supplies. This is where most major manufactures sell lawn and garden equipment. You could also check online at places like eBay or Amazon. While you may not get the exact model you want, you should at least be able to get a reasonable price on the tractor you want.

When you are purchasing a landscape rake, you will need to know the height of the tractor itself as well as how long it is going to be. Also make sure that you consider the weight capabilities. Some landscape rakes are limited by the load capacity, while others have a much bigger capacity. It will all depend on the size of the area you are working with and the type of rake you purchase. The last thing you want to do is buy a huge tractor and then find out that you can’t move it because it doesn’t fit.

If you plan on buying a landscape tractor, then now is the time to compare prices and models. Check out yard sales, local auctions, and even online. There is a better than average selection of lawn and garden equipment. In addition, if you take the time to comparison shop you will find the perfect tractor for your situation.
