For mowing a flat piece of property, lifting and moving axles, engines, and trailers, and grading out the occasional load of gravel for the driveway, an 18hp 4wd diesel tractor should suit you just fine... Stay away from 2wd tractors. Again, JMHO

another thing to consider it tire width, based on the annual rainfall in your area- Tall skinny rice paddy tires are good for only one thing when it is wet and sloppy out, and that is digging trenches.

I envy Justin's backhoe :D


I agree with Rob, only just make sure the lift rating is a little more than what you think you will actually need. You will always find something to lift that requires a little more than you expected.

Wide tires and 4x4 are your friend for sure, unless you have very hard ground year round.

Yeah that backhoe is a life and back saver!!

So many options....i think my best bet will be to wait until the new place is done, so i don't have to move the tractor twice. Until then, I will keep doing my research. Thanks guys!!
