Evening all. 

 

Looking to purchase a tractor and timber trailer. Would be to help with extracting timber, firewood production aswell as Paddock maintenance ie topping, harrowing etc 

 

I probably have around 10-15k to spend. 

 

Have been looking at a few valmet tractors but not many about 

 

Any tractors you'd recommend?? 

 

Cheers

That budget is trawling the very bottom of the market tbh. I don’t think you’ll be able to be particularly brand-specific within your budget (not necessarily a bad thing though). You want something basic but in working order. Basic is good when trees are involved, so that’s not a bad thing!

A 6000 series valtra would be perfect for you but at that budget you'd better keep some back for a decent set of spanner's especially if your hoping to get a trailer in with that budget, odd one's do come up in decent condition but hold good money for a reason.
