There are few tools that I have purchased in my lifetime that have not paid for themselves quickly. I am always good for using a the right tool for the job, and if you own any amount of property over an acre or so, a small tractor is an invaluable tool. I have a Kubota b7500 that is only slightly bigger than an ATV, but it is a great size to use around the property. To go with the tractor I have some great attachments as well. I have a post hole digger with 6" auger, a rototiller, a lawn mower and of course the bucket loader for the front. Some tools pay for themselves a time or two over. This one has done that many times now. It has become one of my best preps to date.
