As others have said, you don’t need to invest a lot in equipment to get started. I’d buy (good) used equipment of what I need, and a good set of tools (assuming you know how to use them). My best purchase has been my service truck, as I can fix most of my older stuff, myself. Any of my newer equipment breaks, I get stuck waiting on the dealer for service. Note, I am a bit more spread out then 80 acres, so you may be able to do it w/o a service trk and drag things back to the barn yard to work on them.
