Those little 4 Wheelers may be handy. But a good tractor will be your best investment. What ever you do don't waste your money on the little ford 9N 2N or 8N tractors. Get a tractor with live PTO and Hydraulics.

My Ford 1910 and power auger are AMAZING! Box blade, bush hog, tiller, spreader, turning plow. All these things help me on the farm so much! Chainsaws, atv, small trailers also help a ton. Your atv can stretch fences haul a trailer for various tasks, help you get sacks of feed out to the barn in case it rains alot and the ground is to soft to hold a truck.

We do not have an ATV, but we do have an electric golf cart with a lift kit and off road tires and it is wonderful for a whole host of farm chores. I really appreciate not having another small engine to maintain or something else to keep fuel in.

I will never own a tractor with out a bucket or front end loader, ever again. It doubles or triples the usefullness of the tractor. (We have a Ford 3930)

DH is itching to put a 4 in 1 bucket on the tractor instead of the standard bucket. The 4 in 1 requires another hydraulic line, because you can open and close the bucket and use it like a claw to pick things up. Very handy when you don't have someone on the ground to help you.

I have a hay rake that is a new holland. A manure spreader, brush hog isnt green. Haha
My green stuff is 45 horse power tractor, 25 horse power tractor. Baler, haybine.
Four wheelers are nice but I would go with a rtv, that has a back to put bales on. I have a kabota.
