What You Need to Know About Compact Tractors

Compact tractors are a great option for first time users as they are a smaller version of a farm tractor, but combine a lot of the features which you expect with more manoeuvrability.  They are fantastic machines for a small farm or those who have medium to large lawns, as they smaller in size but can still complete heavy duty tasks with ease.  If you are looking for a range of compact tractors but don’t wish to spend too much, then we have a number of used tractors available to view online and in our showroom in Burnley.


John Deere has a range of compact tractors which are perfect for tackling hilly lawns.  These tractors are very quick and efficient in getting the job done, having enough power to easily navigate lumpy slopes and hills.  Lawn tractors are ideal for flat lawns, but if you are tasked with a large field with a few hills thrown in, then the compact tractor is the perfect bit of kit to get the job done.  They can also be used to clear muddy or snowy fields, so you are not restricted in options when purchasing a used compact tractor.


Compact tractors are able to perform a number of tasks, with a plethora of models available to tackle tasks from seed spreaders to front end loaders.  The size of the compact tractor means that it is easier to navigate as opposed to larger used tractors, but are heavy duty enough to be used on complex terrains.  Due to the decrease in size, many John Deere tractors operate on a much lower horsepower, from 33-66 depending on the machine, meaning that you will save in fuel.
