You will also need to know which will suit your tractor or mower.
Powered or Unpowered?
Tractor implements or attachments can either be powered or unpowered and we can help you make the perfect choice for your needs.
Powered implements get their power from the tractor’s PTO (power take off), electrical or hydraulic output or from wheel action.
How Do Tractor Implements Work?
If you are familiar with your tractor, or if you are a new owner of one, then you’ll know there are three main locations for mounting your vehicle’s attachment: front, mid and rear.
For front attachments, the most popular is the front loader, where the loader arms are attached to each side of the engine. The hydraulic controls allow for the loader’s movements, namely raising and lowering.
The loader bucket is also hydraulically controlled.
The most popular mid mounted piece of kit is the mower deck.
The rear attachments are connected by a drawbar or a three-point hitch. This allows for easier lowering or raising of the attachment that’s in use.
Do Attachments Come with the Tractor?
It depends on the brand but some are provided with one or two attachments.
Sometimes you can select the attachment that’s best for you.
