Whats the first thing to do after closing? Go tractor shopping! Part of our review process was figuring our that for 5 1/2 acres and everything we were planning, a tractor would be one of the first things we purchased. We spent the weekend shopping the green machines, the orange beasts, finally settling on a red one with a mowing deck, hook-on-via-frame excavator, post hole digger, and box blade. In 48 months we'll have the title! 


For us part of the cost benefit calculation was how much would it get used, what we're we planning to do ourselves, how much could we save, the hassle of regularly doing rentals otherwise. I didn't want hopefully any real maintenance issues to worry about so we focused on search on only new units. There surprisingly wasn't a lot of deprecation on only a couple of year old tractors so new it would be. 

The tractor got delivered 5 days after closing.

Thankfully the property is behind a neighborhood gate, so we felt find just plopping the tractor on open vacant land. If you look at the aerial view of the lot, you'll see the lot is pretty well hidden, and at the end of dead end roads as well, behind a gate.
