When people think about farm equipment, they tend to immediately think about tractors and ploughs. While tractors are certainly very useful, if you're a farmer, and not a construction worker or landscaper, then what do you really need with so many pieces of farm equipment around? Well, that depends. If you are a grower and grow your own vegetables, then a compact tractor and plough might be more than enough, but if you're more of a grower to produce and market other kinds of foods, then you'll probably want to have some more options.Now, there are plenty of pieces of farm equipment that are both heavy and small enough to be both useful and fast on the farm. For instance, you can have an excavator, a combine harvester, a forklift, a tiller, and a bucket if you need all of those things. If you have a small-scale farm, though, then a tractor will probably be a better idea, especially if you have land with poor soil or steep hills. There are tractors that are both compact and lightweight, and that will be perfect for small-scale farmers. Just shop around for the best deals.Excavators are very large construction equipment consisting of a flat bed, boom, bucket and cabin on a very tall rotating pedestal known as the "houses". The houses sit atop an over-carriage with casters or wheels. The boom shifts the excavator's position relative to the soil, while the bucket moves the soil by compressing air.

 

 

 

 

 

Compact Tractor

 

 

For anyone looking for farm equipment on a budget, compact tractor is one of the best choices you can make. To find out more about them, read the latest product reviews and specifications below. Compact tractors quickly emerged in the farming market segment from 40 hp to over 100 hp, filling the gap left by American conventional tractor brands geared up to fulfill market demand by the American agriculture farmers for higher and heavier horsepower. With their increased performance, tractors can easily execute more chores and work load that previously were not attainable for them. Their compact size allows them to be transported from one place to another with ease.The Ag tractor models offer four types of engines, namely diesel engine, gasoline engine, an alternative lubricating oil engine, and a mainspring engine. Each type has its own advantages and disadvantages, and the best way to understand these is to understand how they work. For example, a diesel engine offers four speeds, which makes it the most popular. However, this kind of engine consumes more fuel than the others and also needs regular maintenance and tuning. On the other hand, the gasoline engine offers higher torque, but it is the most expensive and the most dangerous when involved in an accident because of the high fuel consumption.On top of that, the new small frame compact models offer four-wheel drive, which has made them the most wanted by both the farmer and consumers. These four-wheel drive models have considerably less horsepower compared to their two-wheel drive counterparts, however they have an added advantage - they are very maneuverable. Their ability to move over uneven and irregular ground and obstacles makes them excellent for the farming community. In addition to all the above, most of the compact tractor models in the market today offer excellent safety features like multiple airbags, stability control, and anti-lock breaks.

  

 

Excavator

 

 

Excavators are very large construction equipment made up of a boom, cabin, boom arm, bucket and dipper on a fixed-rotating drum called the "house" or "pitch". The house sits on an elevated platform with tracks or wheels. They're often incorrectly called power shovels and oftentimes, a direct result of the earlier steam powered shovels. Early models used winches to raise and lower the bucket or dipper. This was later adopted by the compact tractor, which uses the same mechanism but without the winches. This early model of the excavator has a boom that extends forward and back, allowing the operator to scoop large quantities of soil while remaining at a safe distance from the walls of the barn.Today excavators continue to be used for many tasks including mining, soil handling, and landscaping, however some other smaller tasks have also found their way into the excavator inventory. For example, farmers have used them for years to excavate and collect rainwater in streams and ditches. Other attachments have also found their way to the back of excavators, such as casters that allow for easier movement on uneven or irregular ground. Whether you're using an excavator for different types of equipment or just to move dirt on your farm, it's important to know the right size equipment to purchase to make sure you get the best results for your needs.

 

With a drivetrain that can be completely changed or adjusted according to the farmer's needs, the cab tractor is now designed with an endless array of attachments and functions that make it extremely adaptable to whatever is needed to get the job done. While the older style tractors were designed to do one thing well, the compact cab tractors are built to do many things at once. This means that not only do they have more horsepower and can pull harder, they also have a much longer reach and are better able to clear obstacles and perform in the toughest of soils.With a wide array of attachments available on a modern compact tractor, it can be difficult to know where to begin. Some of the most common and indispensable attachments on these machines include: tiller, pliers, buckets, forks, buckets, and harrow. While many farmers tend to leave these off of their tractors for the simple reason that they are not needed all of the time, other less busy people make them a part of their equipment arsenal. The wide range of attachments available and the sheer number of people who will use them are testament to this fact.
