Please advise on Tractor and Combine to purchase

Hello, I'm going to start farming and need some advice on what size tractor and combine to purchase.  I will be farming corn and soybeans in Minnesota.  I will have approximately 400 acres. 

What size should the tractor and combine be? 

Two or four wheel drive? 

Is there such thing as a wear-out life in hours?

How many hours is considered an average annual use?  (I suppose it is acreage dependent)

Can you recommend resources where I can find out more info on starting up an operation such as equipment needs or anything else?
