 which tractor

I recently bought 10 acres (3 wooded) to build new house.
House will sit back 350 ft from road. We get heavy winter snow. Being from the city I need advice on what size tractor to purchase.
Would like a FEL and large mower deck.
Any suggestions with price estimates would be appreciated.

I really have tried to stay away from picking brands. I'll have to side with the 4310/ 430 loader/ rear blower combo. The big three Orange, Blue, and Green all build quality equipment. One of your main deciding factors should be the dealership reputation where you buy, that will make or break your enjoyment of your new tractor. The absolute lowest price isn't allways the best choice, you can save lots of bucks by going with a little known import that has a scanty dealer orginazation, that can leave you with an orphan down the road. My Dad allways said " Quality is like buying oats, they come a lot cheaper after they've been thru the horse". Welcome to the world of compacts, you'll love it. Frank.

If you liked the 43xx series from Deere, take a look at the Grand L series from Kubota. That would be closer to the same line of tractor than comparing the 43xx to the Kubota B series. The Grand Ls are nice.

A large cut with 30-40 horse power, 72" mid mount mower (MMM)deck, Loader, Cab, 3pt snowblower, 72" rear blade. Is the toy your need. Get a kubota and thats a lot coming from a kid who grew up with John Deere. Look at spending a lot, $20k -$30k. Most people's tractors here are worth more than their car. Which is why the tractor get to be garage kept with the car in the driveway.

Often people choose the tractor, then select the implements. I think this is backwards. The methodical approach to selecting equipment is to make a list of what you need to do with it. Then select the implements that you need to do that work. Then select the size tractor that will best handle the needed implements and fit in your garage Smile When you purchase you can't go wrong with any of the big 3, and some of the others (Kioti, Branson) are good values and coming on strong. My advice when it comes to brands is shop the dealer FIRST, then shop the equipment. If you have a problem, especially as a new tractor owner, you need someone who will stand behind you. There is nothing more frustrating than spending big bucks on equipment and then fighting with the dealer to get parts, service and support.

Yes, that's what I've always thought too. Implements are really the tools worked with and tractors are just mobile power sources. It's good to get a good fit between the tools and the work first because a tractor severely reduces choices of implement size.

For example, My tractor runs a 5' snow blower. It lacks the power to run a 6' one and a 4' one wouldn't clear the width of the rear tire tracks. It takes 3 passes to clear my drives and no matter what the ground speed is about 2-mph except slower in very heavy snows.

My tractor defines how long it takes to clear the drives and I can't change that much except with a different sized tractor. Good thing I don't have strong disagreements with how long it takes. However, the tractor really is too big for finish mowing around a bunch of out buildings and trees etc. and I use a riding mower. A tractor that'd take a 4' blower also might be good for mowing but I'd have to recognize that it would take longer for heavier work. Getting the tools right isn't easy and maybe getting the tractor first seems more manageable.
