We have been looking at compact tractors too - with the added disadvantage of being in France, all Kubota second hands tend to be very expensive , very old and not very powerful.  We are currently looking at a Mahindra, which is more powerful and seem more robustly built that the Iseki that we have seen.

Looking at getting second hand shipped down from the UK with topper, front loader and link box!  Works out better than getting one in France.

All reviews seen of Mahindra seem good, has anyone got any first hand experience?

Have you tried Le bon coin?

You can often get good deals on second hand stuff over here.

Thanks Elibump, we had been looking for months, but everything was so expensive or anything in our price range was 20+ years old!
We have bought a Mahindra through an english company, but it was located in France, so did not cost a fortune on delivery - It only has about 45 hours on it and the previous owner is selling up and going back to the UK - There are quite a few of those at the moment!

I will look at Leboncoin for other stuff though!

Thought I'd put  piccy of our tractor - it's not had much use, everything is too wet - here's looking forward to spring!
WE had a half day instruction on it, which was useful.

Our neighbours had a plough delivered here as they can't get it to there place due to the weather. Anyway, they then made the offer to lend me their tractor anytime I want!

It may be worth your while to consider a 2-wheel tractor as a very good alternative to a larger and heavier 4 wheel machine. There are some very versatile models on the market that will not only cultivate large plots but also accept a range of accessories from mowing decks to sit-on, tow-behind trailers. Two-wheel tractors are often favoured by many market gardeners, vineyard and olive grove owners in the hilly argicultural areas of the Mediterranean. The machines are very manoeuvrable and perform a wide range of tasks. There are quite a number of different machines available in the U.K.,
