//A Tractors Evolution

A Tractors Evolution

If you look at any farm land, chances are you will see one, two or even three tractors on the property. Tractors have been around since the early 1800’s and have evolved over the years to become one of the most popular pieces of equipment. In the early days, tractors were very large and not necessarily economical. However they did do the job well.

Early on the tractor was very large and bulky and was primarily used for commercial and industrial purposes. Timber companies would use them to haul their cut down trees to the saw mills. A little smaller tractor was used for farm purposes. For those that could afford them, the tractor made farming a lot easier and farmers could plant their crops in record time and some could actually double their initial crop size because they were able to plant and produce a wider variety of crops across their land. When the gasoline tractor came into play, more farmers were able to purchase them. Tractors for sale with gasoline were far more economical.

Tractors evolved slowly over the years. As the tractor industry was seeing the great need for commercial and residential tractors, they also saw a need for more compact versions. The large, mammoth tractors were no longer as viable in the growing communities. As land went from wide open plains to more towns and residential communities, tractors became more of an item for commercial use. It was at this time that tractor companies began to develop the smaller, compact versions that were easily maneuverable and took up less space to store.

Today, the tractor comes in a wide variety of sizes and has a multitude of purposes. You can get a wide variety of attachments that you can connect to your tractor to perform various duties. There are even small manually driven tractors that are used for commercial and residential landscaping purposes. While farmers and commercial companies still use larger versions of the traditional tractor, they are nowhere near the mammoth size they once were.

In almost every town or city throughout the world, you are bound to come upon a place where tractors are being used or where tractors can be purchased. They are now a common piece of equipment. The best part is that most of today’s modern tractors are easy to use, safe to operate and are far less expensive than one might expect.

    Walk behinds are not known for big tires. Yet they give a super quality cut result.
    This unit is for people that want a walk behind, quality cut result without the walking. Like me. And for my wife
    to actually enjoy mowing.
    We are getting either this mower or a comparable unit.
    The pros far outweigh the cons.

    Help, I’m desperate!! Can someone please show how to change the oil in
    the Craftsman / Troy Built model 29000 rear engine riding mower? The instructions
    and pictures in the book are horrible. What is the oil sump on this?
    Do I need to do anything with it after I attach the drain sleeve? Where
    is the oil drain plug? Thank you in advance.

    mowing is all about the wheels folks.  The bigger the wheels, the better the cut.  Little wheels equals a cut that bounces all around and not even.  Tire width is important too.  The wider the tires, the less they "cut" into the yard as you drive along.  These little mowers all have tiny wheels  which will bob the cutting deck all over the place.  If you mow fast it amplifies the uneven cut too.  Gotta remember that the base of the mower is the wheels which allows the cut and how level the cut job is.. The wheels are the first thing I look at when choosing a mower.

    Trust me folks, if you are thinking about buying a riding mower, do not buy one of these rear engine mowers. Wait until the end of the season and buy a  Craftsman or Troy Bilt LT1000 with an 18 or so HP engine and an automatic transmission. You can get one for around $1000 and it will be 3 times the mower than any rear engine mower.

    That is a ridiculous price for such a small mower! Troy-bilt isn’t exactly known for making a quality product to warrant such a high price!! Rip off!

    What a great sharpener. So many uses. I use this for my EDC knives, kitchen knives, hatchet, and most recently my lawn mower blades. This does it all. It comes with 3 different grits to get the perfect finish.

    My Troy Bilt X609G riding lawn mower is now riding rough in FWD. Anytime I increase speed or try to go up an incline, it grinds, jerks and acts like it doesn’t want to move at a constant speed. I just replaces all of my belts, blades and the air filter for seasonal maintenance and it is riding like a brat kid to the shower. The Transgear might be on it’s last legs. Can anyone offer advice to what it might be?

    Ass-hole Sears wants $36 bucks extra for the mulch kit. ( Craftsman made by Troy-Built )

  20. Wise Student 2017-12-24 at 11:14 PM - Reply

    I bought and used it for a few times now.  It needs gauge wheels on the deck because it will gouge on a rise.  The mulcher isn’t much compared to my Honda pusher. I disconnected all the annoying safety switches. and extended the shifter three inches.  Now you know the truth about this mower…

    My Snapper is nearly 40 years old and I can drive it up a tree, I wont tell you how I know that, I will put it against this or any other rear engine mower anywhere on earth, and yes it is the original engine.

    Got one just like that with a Craftsman badge on it and it is a piece of crap. Had to call customer service 3 times in the first year. twice because it would not start and once because the belt came off. It is now sitting in my yard waiting for parts (and it is only a year old).

    Worst purchase I ever made. It’s just total junk

  24. ROY JOHN 2017-12-24 at 11:26 PM - Reply

    Very dangerous mower will tip over, jump forward, Knob for forward and reverse will fall off. Font wheels will come off ground if you are not careful. Turning on a slope will tip over.
    Don’t buy if you value your life. Returned mine after 3 uses.

    Had this mower only 2 months Now it cutting had no issues with it. But now when I change the deck hight from 5 to 4 it cuts off and it won’t start unless it’s in decks in the 5 position does anyone know why?
