What's the best way for me to "vet out" a used tractor or any UTV/ATV given I have no experience with them other than using my neighbors...which I might add was EXTREMELY useful and saved me days of back breaking work! Bring a long an experienced mechanic? Maybe ask my neighbor to come along (not sure how much he knows though either).
i didnt read other posts so sorry if this a double, but when i tractored shop, they said 500 hours on the tractor was roughly around 100,000 miles on a car, so be careful. when i did buy one, it was a used ford 2210 4x4, paid around 11k for it, used it extensively for 2.5 years and sold it for 10.5k, so they definately hold there value, that machine had only 700 hours on it when i got rid of it.
