It's only a problem in soft soils. It carries the whole weight of the front of the tractor, and sinks easily. But you can turn those puppies around on a dime, that is the one big advantage, as long as you don't have anything hooked on behind you, that is.
I maybe basied, but the best tractor I have found for small farm farming is an AC 5050. 50 hp, 3pt, pto, and lots of power in the 3 clnyinder diesel engine. I use mine for mowing hay, plowing(will pull 3b plow), discing, draggin, have frontend loader for it, man, it does everything. I really like it. Yes, you definitly want to take someone with you who knows tractors.
