Tractor vs. UTV

Tags: tractor farmer

While the majority opinion among our readers seems to be that a Tractor would be a better choice for on-farm hauling, our gut feeling is that a UTV is still a more appropriate vehicle. We've seen tractors in our swamp before, and the result was lots of very deep ruts and farmers who were leery of ever setting foot on our land again.

Unfortunately, we haven't seen UTVs in the same scenario, so we can't compare the two types of vehicle side by side. But when we dropped by a dealership that sells both tractors and UTVs, the salesman agreed with my analysis. He mostly sells to farmers and they tend to use UTVs even in really mucky terrain where cows have been fed in the same spot all winter.

In fact, the salesman told us about a farmer who accidentally let a wagon roll down into a sinkhole...and ended up with a tractor down in the same wet, mucky hole. The tractor couldn't handle the mud, but the farmer's UTV could. Here's hoping our guess is right and a utility task vehicle can handle our swamp.
