If you're shopping for utility tractors, you need to know how to compare models from all the different manufacturers.

Weight

When you're comparing utility tractors, heavier is better. Why? More weight typically means heavier, more durable components and construction. We'll show you what we mean...and what to look for.

Horsepower

Think one 45-horsepower tractor is the same as the next? Maybe, or maybe not. All horsepower isn't created equal, so you need to know how a tractor's horsepower is measured before you can compare tractors of similar power ratings.

Haymaking Videos

Not every round baler is the same.

When you're comparing models, one manufacturer to another, you need to be aware of several key components that go into a baler, and into making the best possible bale. In our series of videos, we'll show you the features you need to be aware of when deciding the right baler to purchase for a truly productive hay season. Plus, we'll show you just how important the cutterbar is to the performance of your mower-conditioner.
