I need a tractor for my 35 acre place and I have a budget max of $5000. I can't seem to find anything in the area that meets my needs (specifically, I must have a loader). I can find tractors for sale on this website in my price range, but I can't go see them because of the distance.

Have any of you bought tractors this way successfully? Any horror stories or tips to share?

Thanks.

Steve

Sometimes you can be crazy to buy a tractor that you can see. Good luck.

What is your area? If you happen to be in NY, Penn, MD, WVA, or Va you need to check the Lancaster Farming newspaper. There likely are similar publications in other areas where there is an agricultural presence.

I bought a tractor, I was 6,000 miles away. The tractor was shipped from Seattle Washinton to Holcombe Wisconsin, I live in Hawaii. Bought & paid for the tractor and saw it 4 months later! It was exactly how it was described. Someday, you have to trust one another. I have never had any problems with people & farm machinery!
