Frequently asked Compact Tractor questions
Do you supply 6ft Toppers ?
6ft machines are not standard stock for us because of the problems of delivery. Standard carriers are not happy to deliver anything bigger than 5ft machines without very heavy surcharges which make it uneconomically to despatch. We occasionally have larger machines in stock. You are always welcome to ring and ask about this 01278 686352.
How high/low will the Toppers cut ?
Height of Topper can be adjusted to cut a height of about 1.5” to 6” cut.
Do I need a Topper, a Finishing Mower or a Flail Mower ?
It depends exactly what job you would like your machine to do. Toppers will give a good overall cut to any paddock or field and can cope with topping nettles, brambles and long grass. If you want a parkland or lawn finish you will require a finishing mower. Flails are great for very rough foliage and cutting through heavy nettles, brambles etc but have to be worked slowly. They are ideal for cutting a path through rough areas or for initial cuts clearing rough ground.
Do Bale Spikes fit on the front or back of my tractor?
Our Bale Spikes are designed to fit on 3 point linkage at the back of the tractor. Some customers have adapted the mountings to fit on the front loader but as standard they are designed for the back of your compact tractor.
Do you have tractors with rollbars or cabs?
We sometimes have stocks of compact tractors with rollbars or cabs available. We will let you know on our website ‘tractors’ page or you are welcome phone and ask about any stocks or let us know what you are looking for and we will look out for this for you.
Do you supply tractors with loaders/buckets ?
Tractors fitted with loaders and buckets are very sort-after especially in the second-hand market and so they keep their prices quite high. We do sometimes get some stocks in and we try to supply at a reasonable price. You are welcome to ring and ask about this 01278 686352. We update our website with any new stocks of tractors as soon as we have information and photos.
How much is carriage to …?
Our standard carriage charges cover most postcodes in England, Wales and South Scotland. However our carriers have surcharges for more outlying postcodes in Scotland and any Offshore Islands. It is best to check with us as these can be expensive.
Do you supply Ireland, Channel Islands, France ?
We have several customers in these areas and are happy to supply. Machinery on pallets can be sent out to customers. However, our standard carriers are very expensive to Ireland, Channel Islands and Euro. We can obtain quotes for delivery but often our customers have carriers they regularly use and we are happy to pack up a pallet and have it ready for collection from our warehouse which is usually the easiest way. Some customers have shipping agents who will take pallets onwards from an UK mainland address and we are happy to send out to these at our standard rates. We have supplied tractors that have been taken out to France although collection and transportation is arranged by our customers.
Does the PTO on the tractor go the right way ? (clockwise)
Yes – we only supply tractors with a clockwise PTO.
Can you fit hydraulics to the tractor ?
Yes, most of our compact tractors have the facility to fit hydraulic pipes for a tipping trailer etc and usually this can be adapted to power machines like log splitters without too many problems.
