Quad topper

I have a mad idea in my head of buying a quad-drawn topper for my smallholding (c. 30 acres).

Any suggestions/recommendations/opinions on the type I should go for?

Thanks in advance and stay safe.

Do you really need a quad topper? They can be very expensive and a 3 point linkage one can be got for less than 500 euro. Quad toppers are running €2,000 and up!

Is it a need or a want for one We have one & it only gets used a few times a year. Can be hard on petrol too. And the engine makes them quite heavy so you're also liable to sink in soft areas that the quad can go through easily, so you're bogged before you know it.
Not saying not to buy one but looking back it was probably an impulse buy for us, as the tractor topper is used FAR more often & was less than half the price.

If you're in the market for a topper, might be easier to see if anyone does it in the locality, or see if anyone has a quad topper in the locality. That's pretty much the majority of what ours is used for, other peoples land

(Our tractor topper is a malone, can't fault it. Quad one has no brand on it but think we bought off this guy & that's the same one in pic, except ours is yellow)
