Finding high quality equipment at a reasonable price is one of the most satisfying feelings you can have in the agribusiness industry. With so much riding on these crucial pieces of equipment, the used tractors you find impact your business in various ways. From reducing the time you spend dealing with breakdowns and repairs to saving you from spending on parts and maintenance, high quality 2nd hand tractors can make your QLD farm run smoother than ever for a surprisingly low price.
As with anything you buy used, getting a good deal on a second hand tractor requires a watchful eye. While you know best how to find the right machine for your needs, there are a few key considerations that every farmer should make when looking for second hand machinery. These common-sense tips can’t find the perfect choice for you, but they will make it a lot easier to sort through the options and make sure you’re getting what you expect.
If you’re looking for a reliable way to buy used tractors in QLD, the first thing to consider is what brands and kinds of tractors are likely to still be in good condition after some previous use. Some models will break down quickly while other stand up well to a 2nd or even 3rd round of use. Some top brands to keep an eye out for include AG Chief, Kubota, Iseki, and Yanmar. These brands stand up to wear and will work well even if they’re previously used.
Next, you should verify that what you order is what you’ll get! Look out for sellers that don’t include pictures or detailed descriptions of what they’re selling and if possible, arrange to see the unit in person before you buy. Not all sellers will be open to providing a demonstration, but if you can get one, seeing the tractor in action will give you a good idea of how well it works and help identify any potential issues. As a rule, the more information you can get, about the tractor’s history, the seller, reason for the resell, the more prepared you’ll be to make this significant investment decision.

One option for those who don’t want to sort through tonnes of different machines and determine for themselves which are likely to provide reliable service is to buy from a dealer who does the work for you.
