Way off topic but does anyone know of a reputable second hand farm equipment dealer in Vic...??? Need a small tractor preferably with a front end loader and slasher.

'The Land' Paper would be a good start they list used gear for sale as well as clearing sales that are really good for a bargen.

good luck,
Pat.

Blue in deference to Pat I suggest a Victorian paper like the 'Weekly Times' or you may be transporting it a long way to the closer districts to Melbourne. Try one of the dealers closer to where you want to operate Blue.

I like to play with bigger ones :-). Not had a slasher for twenty years I reckon. Loaders at 105 and 150 horsepower.
Cheers,

Thanks John... I'm after a little Kubota or similar, something in the order of 20hp with a front end loader and a slasher. We have a 20acre block and it's in dire need of some maintenance. Mullock(sp?) heaps need to be pushed back into their holes(very slowly with a .25m bucket) and general clearing of the fuel load around the fence line. I need something I can transport, if something goes bang I don't want to require a float to get it to a workshop and it needs to fit in a shipping container for security.

I've looked around Ballarat and Stawell(our property is between Avoca and Stawell) but there isn't much about in this size which is why I threw it open...

A 150hp loader would certainly make short work of it but I'm pretty certain it wouldn't fit in a shipper...

Just over the border from Mildura is Hoods Tractors at Paringa.
Ask for Norm on 85955388 What he doesn't know about tractors isn't worth knowing and he is a honest and down to earth (pardon the pun) bloke.

My list grows... Strangely enough, there isn't much on the internet. Many places advertise but almost always no prices. What's the point of having a website if I've got to call you in the end anyway...???

thanks Scrubby
