Need a used tractor? Then read on. This report discusses many of the considerations you should take into account when looking for a used tractor for sale, these factors you can apply to buying any tractor, especially a used tractors from one of the following list of market-leading tractor manufacturers: Fiat, Steyr, New Holland, Massey Ferguson, Claas, Zetor, Deutz Fahr, New Holland, Massey Ferguson, and many of the other compact tractor manufacturers.

If your farm needs a part used tractor, it is of utmost importance to understand what you are looking for so that you are able to select the ideal tractor from the thousands of tractors that are on offer in classified ads, your local newspapers, your local tractor dealer or online.

There are there are dozens of different features and aspects that you each take into consideration when you are looking for a part used tractor.

When buying a used tractor, begin by drawing up a the job list you expect the machine to carry out for you, and let that be your guide. Given your specifications, we can guide you as to which secondhand tractor will best power the implements needed to do the jobs under your farm or construction conditions.

It is often advised that you invest in a little more horsepower than needed to carry out your specific jobs. If you purchase the bare minimum horsepower to operate the implements routinely used, your secondhand tractor will be in a constant state of strain and more likely to fail resulting in costly maintenance and downtime for your farm or construction site.

It is essential to consider the horsepower of the tractor when you are looking to purchase. It is very important to get a tractor, which has a strong enough engine to do what you will require them to. There is a very wide range of tractors that are there to choose from and this also means that is all important before you buy a tractor that the tyres have the correct tread on them for the purpose that you want them and also to ensure the tractor has been well looked after. If the used tractor that you purchase has a little but not too much wear and tear on them then this is something that you will need to spend money on the future. You should also ask a tractor mechanic how much you use you would get out of the tires with a tread that is left on them.

Before you do anything, make sure you check the number of hours on the engine. Most tractors are capable of having a long productive working life. Those of us familiar with tractors should be able to give a good estimate of the remaining working life of any tractor. The price of the tractor is mainly driven by the number of working hours on the engine, the more hours of service tractor has put in the lower asking price should be.

Price can also be driven by the year of manufacture of the tractor. If you’re trying to decide between two farm tractors of the same year you should take into account the amount of hours worked and the tread on the tyres.

It’s a great idea to try and discoverthe history of the tractor and the type of work that it has been used for in the past, as this will help you to determine how reliable the machine is going to be.

The popular makes and models of tractors attract an awful lot more attention than the less well-known ones which is often reflected in the end price. Some farm tractors attract people because they are renowned for their quality and reliability. It is very important to check with a tractor specialist about the makes and models, which may be best for the purpose that you are requiring your tractor for.

Finally the cabin is a bit like your office, so make sure you get it right, ensure that it is a comfortable place for you to work. You should have good clear visibility and the controls should be easy to operate. There are now a lot of tractors cabins, which have air conditioning and a lot of other features, will be aware that air conditioning can put a drain on the engine and consume extra fuel.

Farm Tractors came from

May 11, 2009 - Leave a Response

Farming Tractor
as we know it nowadays has a history that is full but also challenging with some of the most common versions of these pieces of farm equipment not popular back in the days that they were first developed.

The first ever tractor sale was registered in 1897 and this was constructed by Hornsby-Accord and was a safety oil patented traction engine, powered for optimal use. The most successful commercial design that was sold was manufactured by Ivel and was a three-wheeled tractor in 1902. It is tractors like these and also descendants of these that are known as vintage farm tractors and have now become somewhat of a collector’s item for farm tractor collectors.

Each design of brand new and used farm tractors that we see nowadays has developed over time to make them bigger and improved and despite these vintage farm tractors are regarded an investment, they do not hold the same convenience element as the new types that are around today.

The gasoline models of the farm tractor came about in the early 1900’s and we are connected with great antique farm tractors names such as Ford and Bedford. They became cheaper and thus more readily available for the farmers of this time and before very long, Ford or rather Ford son had 77% of the United States farm tractor market.

Nowadays the farm tractor is thought an essential tool for any farmer and also anyone with a large amount of land. You can now get new and used farm tractors for any use, from mowing the lawn to digging a hole.

Although vintage farm tractors or used farm tractors have some kind of appeal to them, it is seen to be more preferable in today’s society to purchase a brand new version as this brings with it many benefits. One advantage is the numerous new attachments that can be added making it a versatile tool that can perform any task.

Purchasing a polovni traktori

Purchasing a polovni traktori is essential for any farmer but the operation can be long and involved with the many trade names, models and prices. The decision on which tractor to buy is critical in making sure that the farm runs efficiently and the incorrect choice of tractor may lead to difficulties.

Do not rush out and buy the first tractor that you see as this could lead to you buying the wrong one. It is important to take time and does some research before you even go and see any tractors as you need to have a clear image of what you actually require. Also set yourself a budget so that you do not go out and spend too much money on the tractor.

With regards to purchasing a tractor, you should consider whether you can afford a new farm tractor or whether your funds only provides for a second hand or used one. When looking at used farm tractors you need to ask a lot of questions and you also need to have a much closer inspection of the machinery.

One of the first things that you should do is work out precisely what jobs or tasks your tractor will be expected to do about the farm. It is also very important to make sure you get a tractor, which is suitable for the work that you are going to be doing. When you have worked this out, it is a good idea to chat to many tractor dealers to see what makes or models are accessible, the price ranges and also if the tractors can be modified with attachments to meet more than one requirement.

Another very important point to buying a new farm tractor is to figure out whether you need gas or diesel powered vehicles. Nearly All residential tractors would be best suited to gasoline but more commercial ones such as those used in farming would be well suited to diesel topermit more severe work pressures and the various attachments that may come with it. Again, tractor dealers will be able to assist you answer this query.

Another option to think about is the compact tractor, which is much smaller than usual tractors and which has the capacity of finishing many chores and has various tractor engine sizes suited for simple and more difficult work. Compact tractors are generally considered to be the easiest equipment to use for most jobs. There are attachments that can be added such as mowing, cutting, ploughing, and hauling and digging which most people find acceptable for the tasks they are looking to do. These tractors and attachments are accessible from local and also new international dealers, both new and second hand.

American History of Case Tractors

May 11, 2009 - Leave a Response

An American, Jerome Increase Case, started the Case Corporation and produced the first Case Tractors in 1847. Jerome Case was born into a NY State farming family and from a young age he was interested in reading farming and tractor magazines especially the “Genessee Farmer” where he read about a machine that could cut wheat without people needing to use their hands to aid it. He developed an interest in agriculture at that point.

In 1999 the Case Corporation merged with the New Holland Company forming CNH Global Company. The name Case lives on in two brands, Case CE (Construction Equipment) and Case IH (International Harvester). The CNH Global Company is the biggest producer of construction equipment in the world and the 2nd biggest producer of agricultural equipment in the world.

Case Tractors started out by selling threshing machines. In 1869 the Case Corporation launched their first portable steam engine. The first engine built was one moved around by horses. This engine was capable of powering wheat threshers. The engine is now on display in the Smithsonian Museum, located in Washington. The engine was entered into the Paris Exposition competition and the company won 1st place. This was the first thresher sent abroad by the Case company and was the first of 1000s that would later be exported internationally. The next big idea for the Case Company was the production of a traction engine that was self propelled.

In 1890 the Case Corporation extended into South America opening a factory in Argentina.

The founder of the Case Company, Jerome Increase Case, died in 1891 at the age of seventy-two. By this time the company made portable steam engines to power the thresh ring machines and also a traction engine that was powered by steam.

The Case Company went on to be one of the most renowned engine builders of Northern America. The engines they made ranged in size from nine HP to one hundred and ten HP. The Case Corporation went on to make engines with a horsepower of 150 and some of these engines had cabs on them.

In 1895, the Case Company began to produce gasoline engines and in 1904 the company sold their first gasoline tractor. Case at this time developed a wide line of products: threshers, binders, graders, water tanks, plows, buggies, and even automobiles.

In 1927 the Case Company ceased building its legendary steam engines. In 1928, another name change came for the company, this time as the J I Case Company. By 1929, Case had expanded to Australia, Mexico, Sweden and other countries. Also that year, the company produced its first crawler tractor. During 1935, Case tested the first WD-40, a diesel tractor in Nebraska. S and V tractors were introduced in 1940.

In 1947 Case opened a factory in Don caster, United Kingdom. By 1958, the International Harvester company was selling the Model 560 tractor, at that time considered by many farmers to be the latest in farming technology. For the next 31 years, the company went through more globalization, becoming a well-known company in the agricultural markets of Australia, Japan and other places. Many other companies joined Case during this period.

The Case tractors are still very popular today and there are many companies that deal in the sale of Case tractors and Case tractor parts. There are also many websites concerned with the buying and selling of used Case tractors.

Polovni Traktori Investing in your first Vintage Tractor: Avoiding the pitfalls

February 17, 2009 - Leave a Response

Because you are reading this article, then it’s clear that you have an interest in vintage tractors. Refurbishing, collecting, and maintaining vintage polovni traktori from years ago has mushroomed in the past few years. There are numerous reasons for this; firstly they are relatively low-cost to purchase, and maintain and in some countries they cost less than the road tax on a new tractor. Also, . They are simple and understandable. They even have a history . But how do you know how to avoid the many pit falls when you are buying an antique tractor?

There is a vast selection of antique polovni traktori to choose from. Like most things in life, your needs will determine what you should look for. have a clear understanding of your needs before you start then you should translate this into a clear list of what you are looking for that will allow you to make a clear headed decision.

Depending on whether you are looking for an polovni traktori for your acreage or you are intending to set about reconditioning as a hobby you will choose select a different type of antique tractor. Many people will tell you that some of the most sought after antique polovni traktori make poor day to day polovni traktori and on the other-side elaborate renovation of an very common machine could not be worth the effort (not to mention the cost of getting hold of parts no longer manufactured).

The first thing you should do is detailed research when thinking about investing in an antique tractor. Research books are available that have this information providing endless details about any tractor model you wish.

While collectability, engine size, hitch system, etc make up the criteria for choosing what type, size, brand, or model of tractor you want, a more basic list of factors will be used for determining the specific tractor you will purchase. As we discussed earlier, reconditioning an vintage collectable tractor will have a completely different checklist.

Antique polovni traktori for day to day work

Buying a working antique tractor is very easy, but be careful not to buy the first one you see as many people buy the wrong type of tractor and become disillusioned with old machines when they buy one that does not suit their needs. The first thing you should look at is the layout of your farm, also how hilly is it and what type of farm machinery will you be using. If you plan on using the tractor for tillage, such as barley or corn, then you should consider a Nuffield 342, a Nuffield 1060 because other machines may be too low to the ground and cause damage to your crop. On the other hand if your land is mountainous, you may need to consider something like a Massey-Harris 44 Diesel or a Layland 154 . If you are going to use machinery, you should first understand the horsepower requirements of this implement and make sure the tractor model you select has the right weight and horsepower to do the job. If you need to use a ten foot disk harrow, then you will need more power than a Fordson Major E1A Thorough research should ensure you don’t make any of these basic mistakes.

Once you have selected your tractor the first thing which gets your attention should be the mechanics of the tractor not how its looks. Many good working polovni traktori haven’t seen paint in years and will have been maintained with lots of different stuff from around the farm.

Test all the basic functions of the tractor, PTO, steering, gears, lift, lights, indicators and hydraulics. Even if you wish to work on it straightaway, you probably won’t be interested in a complete refurbishment for some time and need to reduce the number of things to do when you get the tractor home. You should have a detailed check list which included at a minimum the following: does it start easily from cold, run well when hot, all the electrical components work well, does it have good traction If possible you should go to your test armed with a toolbox containing a compression tester, expensive Fluke digital multimeter, hydrometer, and other specialty tools. or bring somebody with you who has these tools.. However if you don’t own a set of these tools or have access to them then don’t panic.. You should in this case rely on your own common sense and your own observation skills.

However, having said this, you should still be armed with the a basic knowledge on the operation of the tractor you are previewing. You should, at a minimum beg, borrow or steal a copy of the owner’s manual for the particular model of tractor you are planning to review so you are familiar with its operation and basic specs and what to look out for.

Here is a partial checklist for a simplistic preview of a working tractor:

• Does it start easily? – A tractor that starts easily may rule out several items in one shot Good Battery, compression, ignition wiring / magneto, tune up, fuel flow, Carburetor can be assured (not guaranteed) by this. If it doesn’t start quickly from cold, it still may be a good tractor but you won’t escape some work on it. One thing you should be watch out for is if the tractor is out and warmed up when you arrived, you lose an important checklist item, namely the cold start, because as we all know a warm engine starts much more easily then a cold one..

• How does it run when warm – Getting it hot is a must if you want to find out how it will work after you plowed the first row. There are simple and complex problems that can cause the tractor to run poorly after it warms up. Make sure to run it for at least half an hour. Look for leaks, antifreeze and both oil. Then, shut it down and see how it starts up again.

• Do the brakes work well – Although inexpensive to replace, they are inaccessible on many polovni traktori and will require extensive teardown to get the new ones in. You can check the brakes by locking one wheel and cranking the steering to that side. The tractor should spin and the wheel should not rotate, do this for both wheels.

• Does it smoke – Blue smoke is a bad sign like rings, pistons, or valve guides. White or black smoke can often be sorted out with carburetion or ignition changes but still costs time and money.

• Does the engine run smoothly – A simple ticking from the top of the engine may be a simple valve adjustment but a deep thunk from the bottom or middle of the engine would point to very serious and expensive repairs. The clunk should be more pronounced under load conditions. This may be a sign of problems with the piston, bearings or crankshaft rods. And mean a very expensive repair job.

• What condition is the oil in – After you have run it for a while, stop the engine and check the oil for foaming or water. This is a catastrophic problem.
• Is there head oozing – look for signs that oil are seeping out the head gasket. If the tractor is drenched with grease and oil, it may cover obvious signs of seepage.

• Is the clutch in good working order – a clutch is not that expensive to replace but splitting the tractor in half is beyond what most collectors want get involved in.
• Check the Dynamo – There should be a slight charge indicated on the ammeter when the engine is running and a movement in the charging level when the lights are switched on (this shows that the resistor or regulator switch and cutout is working fine). At normal running speed, no discharge should be shown.

• Use the hydraulics – Check the full extent of the power rams by extending them with a load. Let the load stand in the hold situation for a while to be sure that there is no leakdown. Chattering noises from the pump while lifting indicate the pump is not getting enough supply of hydraulic oil. The pump might have experienced a lot of wear when run this way for long periods of time and may be ready to fail.

• Look for cracks in the structure – It is time consuming but its well worth doing. Look out hairline cracks in all the cast and steel components. Again, this is not expensive to correct but extremely time consuming to fix, also it would be unsafe to use a tractor with such flaws.
If, on first inspection the tractor fails some of these areas, you may still find that the seller is willing to move on price (since you found all the problems). At this time you should determine if you have enough time to correct what you discovered… and make some savings in the process. If you need the tractor straight away then, .

The best situation for buying a day to day tractor is either to purchase one that is currently being used (but the owner needs to upgrade) or from a known dealer. The first category is normally someone just like you who needs a tractor on a day to day basis. These dealings are usually enjoyable and can even lead to a long term relationship that goes beyond the buyer/seller relationship. This type of individual will in all probability even let you try the machine with on your farm and tell you all those things they would fix if they were keeping the tractor.

Purchasing from dealers can also be a good idea but even at a dealer you should be equipped with your evaluation criteria rather than depending on “the warranty”. Even if your dealer offers warranties, hauling a tractor back for even free maintenance will cist you a lot of time and effort. Also remember that the dealer is there to make a profit for his business and may not have your best interests at heart. So buyer beware!

While many of the above examples may sound a bit negative, you should do your research and understand the specific issues a polovni traktori may have before you invest.
