Tips and guides to help you find the right tractor

Here's some tips and guides on how to find the right tractor for your job

1. What is a tractor?

Tractors are powerful utility vehicles designed to tow various construction and agricultural attachments. There are a wide range of attachments available to cater the versatility of tractors on projects. Some attachments include buckets and rakes, posthole diggers and trenchers, forks, pallet forks and add-ons, grapples, hay handling and concrete equipment. These tractors and attachments are available for hire on iSeekplant ready for your next construction or agricultural project.

2. What is the right tractor for my job?

Choosing the right tractor for your project depends on its purpose and drive type.

  • Earthmoving Tractors: Tracked and wheeled options, strong and heavy vehicles, used on construction sites for quarries and dams
  • Tractor Loader: Carry and mount with a front-mounted square wide bucket
  • Industrial Tractors: Uses drawbar to pull loads and easily lifts with fitted crane boom
  • Rotary Tiller Tractors: Fits into smaller spaces, blades alternate to work through soil
  • Row Crop Tractors: All-round tractor, user friendly, attachments easily join
  • Utility Tractors: General purpose tractor, uses many attachments, low-to-medium power engines
  • Tracked Tractors: No wheels, popular for earthmoving, similar to bulldozers with great pushing power
  • Wheeled Tractors (4x2, 4x4): Popular for agriculture, faster speeds, fitted tyres to absorb field shock

3. Do I need a license to operate a tractor?

There is no clear or straightforward answer to whether you need a license to operate a tractor. Each Australian state and territory have different regulations surrounding tractor licensing, but generally when driving a tractor on public roads the operator will need a car license and permission from authorities. The operator does not require a license if the tractor is being driven on private property.
