WHAT TO KNOW BEFORE YOU BUY

Warranty– Papé Machinery offers an exclusive 10-year powertrain warranty on all new subcompact and compact tractors. Learn more about our warranty offers at any of our dealerships.

Measurement– Don’t forget to measure your gates, narrow passages, and the barn or garage where you plan to store the tractor. This may prevent you from having to make changes you didn’t plan for when allocating space for your new equipment.

New vs. Used– In some cases, used equipment can be a great deal. If you come across a used utility tractor for sale with low hours, think about it; but be sure to have a qualified expert inspect the machine before you buy. Tractors are generally worked hard, and you’ll want to be sure the piece of equipment is in good operating condition.

Comfort– If you plan to use your tractor year-round, a cab can greatly increase comfort. You may not need it now but come January you may feel differently. John Deere’s standard cab features include heating and cooling, headlights, windshield wipers, and more.

Attachments– Even if you aren’t shopping for all of the tractor attachments now, it’s a good idea to buy a model that is compatible with a variety of implements you might decide you need later on. Most small property owners find that a loader, a mower deck, and a box blade or backhoe are a good setup to start with.

Whichever compact tractor model you choose, know that you can count on top quality and customer feedback-driven design from John Deere. Contact your nearestPapé Machinerylocation in Washington, Oregon, Idaho or California for help choosing the best compact tractor for your homesteading needs and to learn more about current specials and financing options.
