I have a 2.5 acre block that is around 2hrs North of Sydney. It is a slightly sloping block with a small dam. Currently there is a shipping container on the block, but I am plannng to build an 8m x 14m shed/workshop/man cave. With this work I can foresee a lot of little jobs that will need to be done. I am trying to decide between the 1025R and the 3036E tractors. I looked at a 2032R but it was dearer than the 3036E down under.
My main concern is that the 1025R will struggle in the hard ground. I put in my front fence by hand, and wished I had a post hole digger. I will need to dig a 60m trench to get power to the shed from the front boundary.
The 1025R appears to be more of a Swiss Army knife whereas the 3036E appears to be more powerful but a bit less adaptable.
I have reasonable experience with tractors. I restored a Farmall B that I pulled out of a swamp, and an MD which did some tractor pulls with. Both of those machines were sold ages ago before I moved to Australia from NZ.
Please let me know your thoughts. I am watching so many green tractor YouTube videos the wife is about to have me committed lol.
