I should give you a little frame of reference. A good 40 year old garden tractor around here will cost $300 to $600. Attachments will each add to the price. This tractor with a 10 or 12 horse power engine should be able to plow an acre of easy soil in 1 to 2 hours. That is using a 10" moldboard plow. Good Luck, Rick

ok so im thinking in buying a 10hp yanmar, add a turbo. could i attach a hydraulic pump with variable transmission http://www.peerlessg...aspx?pid=300902 with 4 motors or whats my best option. also it would be articulating with 4 wheel drive.

The more complicated that you make it, the more expensive and unreliable it will be. I do not own any 4 wheel drive nor articulating machines. They are just too big of a pain to maintain. My Case 222 has a 12 hp Kohler with a hydraulic pump attached to the engine. This powers the hydraulic drive which is variable speed. It also powers the attachment lift and drives. Sorry, but the other things are beyond my experience. Good Luck, Rick
