Using Accessories on your Tractor
When you are looking at a new tractor, there’s a fair chance that you will be inundated with glossy brochures containing huge lists of exotic-looking accessories.
Sometimes even very experienced farmers can’t tell at a glance just what an accessory is or what it does and they need to read the description.If you find yourself in that position, don’t worry, you’re not alone!
Manufacturers will tend to produce, sometimes in conjunction with third-party companies, large numbers of bolt-on accessories.That’s absolutely great if you are in the position where you need whatever the accessory is but it can be intimidating at the time you are trying to select a new tractor in terms of deciding what, if any, accessories to purchase.
Of course, money is also likely to be a consideration. Some accessories are seriously expensive and not the sort of thing you will want to make a snap decision on.
In our experience, rather than trying to get everything right up-front, it’s better to purchase a tractor that has a proven track-record in terms of its flexibility in accommodating a wide range of accessories. As you might expect, we think that Kubota tractors rate highly on this scale and that’s one of the reasons we like them so much.
In some situations, you may need an accessory on a one-off or perhaps highly infrequent basis. In those situations, you might be better advised to look at renting or borrowing one from someone else who has one as part of their agricultural equipment inventory.
Knowing someone who has a piece of kit you need occasionally isn’t going to do you any good though if you can’t actually fit it to your tractor. That takes us back again to the need for flexibility and adaptability in tractors and why we’d be happy to work with you to establish a tractor purchasing solution that keeps your accessory fitting options as open as possible.
