I would go geared tractor for ground engaging implements

for loader work and odd jobs - hydro

Not that you can't drag a plow with a hydro, just wears faster and you gotta keep eye on heat.

Amazing what you can get done with a small tractor. (Small real tractor, not a big lawnmower.) Mine is 18hp diesel with a loader and 4wd. (I wouldn't really bother without a loader or 4wd, unless it was an amazing "use-then-flip" deal. )

That being said, I'd be watching the used market, especially local to the property, for something cheap and temporary...

Lots of good input, but... it is really amazing what you can get done, so I'd get something to play with on your visits there!

Mine is 1983 second owner. Our family has had it since 1986.

I use the heck out of it, but since Iím now sixty, I baby the old steel more than I did in the old days. Engine oil gets changed yearly, and trans biannually. It only has 730 hours, so Iím careful.

Any thoughts or experiences with LS brand? I see a ton of ads for them.

New Holland imports them, other then that I donít know much.

If you went new, dealer location to me would come into play on which brand.
LS builds New Holland tractors. Havenít met anyone who has a bad word to say about LS.  :tup:

Skid steers have worth, but its mostly digging related. If you moving dirt skidsteer is probably the right move but the ammount of implents for tractors are more cheapernto buy and rent.

In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

I think he was talking about the Bobcat brand compact tractors that were marketed for a few years.

I'd do something like this

https://spokane.craigslist.org/grd/d/spirit-lake-john-deere-tractor/7267268219.html

get you a grapple and snowblade for the front, and you could do a lot of work.
