Large Tractor For Sale

The large tractor can be the key piece of machinery on any farm. These are the tractors that are designed to do the heavy lifting and heavy pulling and power the most demanding of implements for all sorts of tasks around the farm. Unlike more compact tractors, there is less to choose from in terms of cab or platform operator station or specialist variants such as narrow-track or low-roof orchard and vine tractors.

These machines tend to focus more on the bigger jobs. You will not be limited in choice, though. All the major tractor manufacturers have offerings in the large tractor market, from Massey Ferguson and John Deere to New Holland and Landini.

If you are choosing a large tractor, then you probably have a considerable operation with a need for serious power. The large tractor sector has plenty of that. You will find engines with power ratings up to 500hp and beyond. Larger tractors also have excellent maximum-lift capacities, with some capable of handling ten tonnes or more.

If you are choosing a large tractor, then you probably have a considerable operation with a need for serious power. The large tractor sector has plenty of that. You will find engines with power ratings up to 500hp and beyond. Larger tractors also have excellent maximum-lift capacities, with some capable of handling ten tonnes or more. There is also a wide selection of transmissions, with powershift and hydrostatic systems common. Ensure that these are rated at speeds appropriate to your operations and look for features such as crawler speeds for specialist work.

Power does not just apply to the engine, but also the PTO. The power rating here should be ample for dealing with your most demanding implements. Similarly, the hydraulic system needs to have a litre-per-minute flow rating that can cope with your demands. These vary widely, even on large tractors, so make sure your chosen model is adequate and has the appropriate auxiliary valves. The rear linkage and front loader are other key components which should be checked against your intended uses.

Looking for a large tractor probably means that you have an extensive requirement and may be spending a considerable part of your working day in the cab. This makes it even more important that it is a comfortable place to work. In this sort of size range you should be looking for air-suspended seats and a powerful air-conditioning and heating system. Cab suspension makes for a more comfortable ride and good sound insulation and a carbon filter can make the working day a little more pleasant and healthy.

The control and instrumentation system is a major factor in the cab. There is a lot of new technology available, but you need to make sure that you are happy with it and understand it and that it adds value to your business. Everyone has their preferences for a control set-up, so make sure that the one in your intended model is something you are happy with.

The purchase price of your used large tractor is probably the single piece of financial data that is most in your mind, but remember that running costs make up a huge portion of the total financial picture. Check out the service intervals and look at parts and labour costs. Also make sure that all the user-serviceable and maintenance components are easily accessed. Finally, you should realise that you are probably going to part company with your tractor at some point. This is where depreciation and resale values come into play. You don't want a nasty surprise, so check out how your intended model performs in this area.
