Must-Have Tractor Implements to Buy First

While there is a whole range of specialized tractor attachments that make crucial tasks easier, we’re highlighting the versatile options that the majority of people will make use of on a regular basis. One more thing to keep in mind is that we aren’t detailing loaders — since they are SO essential, they come standard when you buy from PowerPro! Here’s our list of must-have tractor implements:

  1. Pallet Fork — Pallet forks are the number one must-have tractor implement simply because they are highly versatile — and tend to be very affordable, too. Pallet forks are used year-round for putting the power of your tractor to work for lifting a variety of different things. As the name implies, they can move heavy pallets of material, but they’re most often used to lift logs and brush around the homestead or farm.
  2. Backhoe — Almost everyone who makes use of their tractor on a regular basis gets use out of the backhoe attachment. On construction sites, backhoes are needed to dig trenches for burying waterlines or cables and for digging wells. On private property, backhoes make digging holes to plant trees and bushes much easier and more efficient.
  3. Backhoe Thumb Attachment — Since the backhoe is absolutely a must-have tractor implement, our next accessory makes it even more versatile. A thumb attachment is a metal clamp that allows the scoop of the backhoe to grip things. One of the most common uses for this in landscaping and construction is to carefully place things that would be too heavy to easily move any other way.
  4. Loader Mounted Snowblade or Pusher — There’s no question that this is among the most useful tractor attachments for landscaping crews. Adding a loader mounted snow blade or snow pusher to your tractor provides an inexpensive solution to augment your snow removal capabilities! For maximum ease of use, the blade attaches on the front of the tractor in place of the bucket.

  5. Rotary Cutter — Rotary cutters only do one thing, but they do it well! This attachment delivers huge time savings when you need to clear overgrown land. The blades of a rotary cutter make quick work of clearing an overgrown field or meadow, and they even cut down light brush that’s several feet high. Without one of these you’ll struggle to get an overgrown field back in usable shape.
  6. Post Hole Digger — This tractor implement can fulfill a wide range of uses for both homeowners and professionals alike. An attachment designed to dig round, uniform holes in the ground, this piece of equipment sees a lot of use by fence contractors, prior to placing fence posts. Homeowners often use this for planting a row of shrubbery or trees. Finally, some pole barn contractors consider this attachment a must-buy as it makes securing the framing poles much easier and more precise.
  7. Rotary Tiller — A truly must-have tractor implement on farms, a rotary tiller makes turning over the soil throughout the year much easier. Depending on the type of farm and crop, this chore will need to be done several times throughout the year. We say this is a must-buy because if you don’t have one of these tractor accessories, you’ll be left to rent one each time.
