A compact tractor is a great tool to have in your landscape arsenal. This multi-use tool can incorporate its way into many projects with the available attachments. In the landscape industry, you commonly see compact tractors used for grading work. The pull behind harley rake and soil pulverizer work well for finish grade projects. The bucket on the front of the compact tractor can be used for light grading, or to hold debris and rocks while finish grading.
Depending on the type and size of your compact tractor, you can even purchase lawn maintenance attachments as well. Pull behind aerators can be used on compact tractors to reduce the amount of labor involved with aerating large properties. Lawn mowers can also be installed on these units to finish cut or rough cut lawns.
One of the best upgrades you can make to your compact tractor is a quick attach. The quick attach allows you to back up to your attachment and quickly secure it to your tractor without leaving your seat. Without the quick attach, you will have to manually secure your attachments to your utility tractor. Having a quick attach will definitely improve your production if you are switching between different attachments during a project.
