ATV or Ford 8N for dragging arena?
My primary use for whatever machine I end up with is to drag my little arena rascal to condition my arena, and maybe pull a small utility trailer around the farm. We have a bigger tractor with a FEL, but it's shared with some one else, so is sometimes not available and I drag my arena every two days at least.
Locally I see Ford 8N tractors for sale for $1,500 to 2,000. ATV's with 4 wheel drive and enough power to drag an arena are at least $3,000 used and likely more.
So...the Ford is WAY less expensive than an ATV with enough power (or torque) to do what i need. I am tempted to get one instead of an ATV...any opinions from more experienced folk?
