    Stock Up on Firewood for the Winter

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Collecting your own firewood can save you money and make you feel more in tune with the natural elements you use to fuel your fireplace and keep your home warm when it is cold out. Since wood burns cleaner and more effectively after it has been stored in a dry place for several months, getting an early start on your firewood collection can make you better off when the real cold sets in.

    In order to collect your own firewood, you will need an axe, an application-appropriate saw, and a truck, tractor, or wagon to transport the wood. Powerful enough to slice through most types of log, a STIHL chainsaw is ideal for most wood collection purposes.

    Are you a DIY-oriented Washington property owner with access to felled trees from which you can collect all the firewood you will need for the coming winter? If you do not already have the axe, chainsaw, maul, wedge, and hauling equipment that will make the task as easy and efficient as possible, visit the Washington Tractor location nearest you for some of the best deals you can find anywhere. For information about the equipment in our inventory, call (360) 491-2503.

    A Look at the Future of Baling

    Last updated 1 month ago

    Two centuries ago, hay was cut by hand and stored in haystacks until it was needed. Compared with the precise, mechanized round balers used today, this process was wildly inefficient. For a look at the most advanced hay balers on the market today, balers that employ technology that will likely be mainstream in the near future, check out this video.

    In the clip, the director of Hay and Forage Engineering for John Deere introduces the manufacturer’s 9 Series premium round baler, a machine that produces consistent bales using smart technology at little expense to the operator’s energy stores. Virtually the only task the operator of one of these balers has to concentrate on is safely steering the vehicle.

    Are you employed in the agricultural sector and looking for a machine that will make baling hay easier than ever before? Call Washington Tractor at (360) 491-2503 or visit our location nearest you for the best deals you can find on 8 and 9 Series premium John Deere round balers, disk mowers, tractors, and other John Deere equipment.

    Choosing the STIHL Blower That's Best for You

    Last updated 1 month ago

    To the delight of fall foliage lovers, autumn has arrived in Washington State. If you have many trees on your property, you can make autumn far more enjoyable and less labor-intensive by investing in the right STIHL leaf blower for your needs. In order to choose the perfect blower model for your Wenatchee or Okanogan property, consider the following factors.

    Property Size

    The size of your property and its tree cover can help you narrow down your STIHL blower options. If you have a large yard with lots of deciduous trees on it, you will want a large, powerful blower for best results. If you have a relatively small yard with just a few non-evergreen trees, a small hand blower should suit your needs just fine. If you would describe your property’s size as falling somewhere in the middle, a backpack blower should do the trick efficiently and effectively.

    Foliage to Blow Away

    What kind of leaf matter will you need to blow off your sidewalks, lawn, and flower beds? If you will be dealing with dense clumps of wet leaves, you will want one of STIHL’s more powerful blower options. For property owners who are most concerned with getting grass clippings out of the way and will not have to deal as much with leaves, a less powerful model should be suitable.

    Noise Considerations

    Blowers can be quite noisy. If you live in a densely populated area or neighborhood with strict laws on noise control, you will want to be sure not to end up with a noisy blower. Some STIHL models, such as the BG 66 L-a handheld Farm and Ranch blower, come fitted with mufflers that keep their noise level down.

    Other Features

    Some STIHL blower models come equipped with additional special features, such as anti-vibration systems and easy-start technology. Consider these features and choose a model that is sized right and comes with the special features you want or need.

    With the help of a STIHL blower, you can keep your lawn and garden healthy and looking great all autumn long. If you live in Wenatchee, Okanogan, or elsewhere in Washington State, Washington Tractor is the perfect place to find the blower for your needs.

    STIHL Chainsaws at a Glance

    Last updated 2 months ago

    Portable, mechanically operated, and effective, STIHL chainsaws are ideal for applications ranging from routine tree pruning to cutting and cleaning up felled trees. Regardless of whether you are a homeowner who uses a chainsaw once in a while or a lumber professional who works with chainsaws daily, this guide can help you find the perfect STIHL chainsaw for your needs. Here are three factors that can help you choose the right STIHL chainsaw from your local tractor dealer.

    Intended Use

    STIHL categorizes its chainsaws to make it as easy as possible to navigate the choices it offers for homeowners and professionals who are in the market for new equipment. These categories include home use, ranch and farm use, and professional use. Choose from among these categories, considering the applications for which you regularly require a chainsaw and the frequency with which you expect to use one.

    Environmental Concerns

    For decades, gas engines were the most common source of chainsaw power. Today, electric and battery operated models are available for consumers concerned with their carbon footprint. Consider how important it is for you to avoid investing in a gas-powered chainsaw if you can help it, conduct research to ensure that an electric chainsaw can help you meet your needs if it is your preference, and choose a chainsaw accordingly.

    Restrictions and Special Considerations

    STIHL has developed several special features to help customers find chainsaws that seem tailor-made to them. These include the Easy2Start™ chainsaw activation system and STIHL Quickstop Plus®, a safety feature that stops a chainsaw in less than one second upon detecting that an operator’s hand is no longer holding the rear handle. Noise mufflers and special handle types are also available. Choose a model that boasts features that will help you comply with neighborhood and workplace ordinances.

    Identify the criteria you need to meet and shop options housed under the appropriate category, and you should be able to find a chainsaw that will meet your needs for years to come. To enquire about a specific home use, ranch and farm use, or professional use STIHL chainsaw model, call Washington Tractor at (360) 491-2503. We proudly serve Wenatchee, Okanogan, and the rest of Washington State.
