Owing to the generally costly expense of running a farm or smallholding, farmers or rural property owners will not have more than one or two tractors on their lot. If industrious farming is their lot in life then the seasonal nature of their work may appear to be financially convenient, this in the sense that labor costs in general tend to remain one of a couple of the largest expenses. The other one or two, of course, relate to their water and power supply.
And then of course, there is always the costs incurred on maintenance and repairs, work that many an industrious farmer often finds he has to do himself. This is hugely influenced by the fact that he is in a rural setting and is literally hundreds of miles from the nearest industrial or urban setting. The old saying goes; if you want something done, you may as well do it yourself. And specific to certain parts of the world where farming is not just industrial but something of a cultural tradition and literally in the blood of those who have inherited rich and fertile lands from their forefathers over a period of generations, is this saying.
A farmer will always make a plan.
Not necessarily up in arms over labor costs in season, but more concerned over being able to make deadlines and get produce to market on time, the farmer beefs up on his bale spear tractor supply. Whilst farmhands are more than capable in their demanding work, this system simply allows the farming enterprise to do so much more. And being industriously capable, the farmer more than welcomes the fact that the system is easy to maintain, assemble and disassemble when in and out of season respectively.
