Hello... I have basic tractor knowledge from working part time on several farms. Since high school I have spent almost all my time in the Army and am looking for advice on what tractors would be right for me. Last year my wife and I bought a 40 acre in the granite ledge area of central MN. I just bought a new bush hog 296 in cahoots with my father in law and its min HP rating is 45 so I know I'm not gonna get by too cheap. I would like to stay well under 10,000 bucks though.
I want it to be between 50 and 80 HP diesel
good hydraulics with a loader
4x4 perhaps???
any suggestions? I will use it to pull a 4 row plot planter that Im currently in the process of building.

I also would like to get a finish mower for my lawn. Any suggestions what to look for?
Time is on my side though. Im not going to buy anything until next winter when I return from Iraq.
:thanku::greendr:
