I would go with a john deere 3520 or 3720 with a front mount snow blower.

Take a look at the Kubota B3030 with a cab.

30HP, mid PTO, 4WD and the cab is fantastic when blowing snow.

Isn't it great spending other peoples money!

I maintain a mile road in SE Michigan---we don't get a lot of snow typically---but when we do, the last thing I would want to be on is a tractor with or without a cab. For the cost of cab with AC and heat (yep, the cab is great in winter but you most likely want AC too--been there---aftermarket AC from my skid steer is $3000) you can buy a nice, older 4x4 with a plow---with HEAT AND AC and a radio.

Don't know if you use salt on your road (which you probabaly will since plowing or blowing will cause the surface to be very smooth and promote icing or at the least loss of traction) the salt alone will cause premature rusting of components especially fender and cab-related parts that tend not to have a rust inhibitors or even primers. Even if you don't salt your own road, salt tracked in either in liquid form dripping from the undersides of vehicles and tires from traffic from adjacent highways will find its way to your tractor. I made the mistake of doing a job (read: freebie) for a buddy in the dead of winter. The machine was on the road trailered for 30 minutes at speeds under 35mph. By the time I unloaded it the salt had corroded/stripped all the bright cadmium plating on everything from hose fittings to bolt heads to steel hydraulic lines. Even though I washed it off the next day they were all rusted and continued to get worse. Buy a truck and plow for the winter.

If you use a tractor in the winter, you'll need to get opinions on tires (Ag. vs R-4) and weighting, and traction chains (maybe).

Chipster,

I've got a place in New Meadows ID (I'm originally from Homedale) and I have a New Holland Skidsteer with a front mount snow blower. With the much higher gpm hydraulic pumps in all of the skidsteer or bobcat type tractors, you get very good results. The snowblower has a direction chute controlled from the cab which is a must. A pricy unit but boy does it blow snow. Was over there on Presidents Day weekend and had not been there for some time and blew about 2' of compacted snow with no problem. It will blow 6" of snow moving about 4 mph and throw it about 30 feet. Having the unit in front of you is a real big plus.

Good Luck!
