Hiring a Tractor – Did You Know it Was Possible

Hiring a Tractor – Did You Know it Was Possible

The Possibilities Of A Tractor

We lived on a corner lot near a park. My husband and I love landscaping and gardening, but I have to admit, when I saw the city workers speeding across the park on their tractors, pulling shredder mowers behind them, I felt quite envious.

That feeling really increased when we decided to start our latest fencing project. 54 fence posts  we had to set, and the started digging each hole by hand. Never again will I make that mistake.

Hire a Tractor

Imagine my frustration – and maybe a little bit of resentment – when I realized we could have hired a tractor to dig those fence posts! Not only that, we could have used that post-hole digging attachment to dig holes for the 35 trees we planted!

Needless to say, I have since checked into the possibilities of hiring a tractor to handle the heavy work. Here is what I found out.

Job Descriptions

There are actually job descriptions for tractors. Do you need a shredder to manage your acreage during the growing season? You can actually hire a tractor for as little as 5 weeks, and for as long as an entire year. You can even get the kind that has a cab with an AIR CONDITIONER, for cryin’ out loud!

Maybe you just need to move some dirt so that your new storage shed has a level floor. You can hire a tractor with a dirt moving blade or bucket, and do the work yourself. As with the shredder, you can rent the equipment for as long as you need it.

Tractors are available for hire for agricultural and for construction purposes. You may need a post hole digger, like we did. Or, maybe you need a trailer to haul livestock or their feed. Maybe you need a core aerator before you plant your crops, and you just don’t want to buy one out of this year’s profits. K

Or, maybe you need a drum roller for that contract you got for installing driveways on a rural road, and a grader to level the whole thing out.

There are plenty of suppliers in the industry that actually hire out tractors to the general public as well as to professionals.

Start-Up Businesses

Maybe your college-age kid has a chance to get a contract shredding county roads, but has no tractor. Regardless of the need, you can hire tractors of any size, with attachments for any job.

Landscaping companies, concrete workers, construction companies, farmers, and just ordinary home owners who have a lot of work to do can all benefit from hiring a tractor to do the heavy work. Even a compact utility tractor can run farming and landscaping attachments such as tillers and discs. But, if you have a business, you may find that the bigger, higher horsepower units are preferable. They can cover a lot more ground in a lot less time than the smaller tractors, and time is money in business.

So, don’t dig those post holes by hand. Hire a tractor. Save your back, and maybe your marriage.
