What Size Tractor do I need for 100 Acres?

You need to make sure that then tractor you purchase is powerful enough for the amount of land you have. You also need to ensure that the tractor you buy isn't too powerful for the amount of land you have. 

For 100 acres of land, you will need a larger scale tractor, with a larger amount of horsepower. This will most likely need to be around 80-100 horsepower. 

What is the Best Size Tractor for a Small Farm?

For smaller farms, so usually below 100 acres, you will need a tractor with a smaller horsepower. There is no point buying a tractor that is too powerful, as you won't need it.
