Boy what a wide open slate here:
First you must know your budget. Then realize depending on what you will be doing (write this down so you don't miss any implement needed) the price of attachments and implements can approach or exceed the tractor price.
Today's market new offers better financing than used if that is important. If financing look at all cost including insurance.
If you are sharp you can save a good bit buying used, if not you will pay more for junk than new might be. Work on your what I want to do list (written down, more detail than you might expect..not just mowing but mowing rough grass or lawn quality) what you want to do around the trees and grape vines long term and might suggest you even make appointment with salesman at dealership for the brands you like (the ones you have listed are the big ones) and go over your needs and limits. You want a salesman who is an asset regardless the brand you get.

Most people will end up finding more uses over time and often that means need for more horse power and not less. One other side note, are you consider a farmer by your state? If not find out the requirements, limits and benefits. Do this before you buy as in some states that affects sales tax. Do talk with your accountant on this, this is a long term deal.

A B-series would work fine depending on your sprayer needs for the fruit trees.

It seems that most people don't anticipate the actual spread of the trees well as they get older and then they find they need a smaller tractor to get around them.

They all three build good equipment, and sometimes the bottom dollar bid isn't your best choice.
A good solid dealership with a good parts and service department can make or break your tracor ownership experience. All brands can and will break down and need regular maintenece that sometimes can be above our limits so far as some of the more refined service things. Don't be tempted to drive three states away to skip the sales tax, that will come back yo haunt you when you need service on a tractor that's broke down in the field.
Find a good local dealer you are comfortable with and forget the color, they will all do the job.

I would agree with what has already been said.

Know what you want to do then buy extra hp--you'll always find a use for it, but don't go so big that it is a hinderance.

I recently bought a new NH T2210--70plus hours in the seat. The key is a good relationship with the dealer, before I bought it and now afterwards. They have helped me work through all of those questions I never thought to ask. So far it has been a great match for what we need it to do and for going around fences and through our barn--any bigger and I would not be able to maneuver around tight spots.

Ask around to find out what dealer is good--the locals usually know and will tell you who to stay away from.

Have fun and don't rush the decision.

And don't forget to test drive them all--them drive them again and again. They will feel different on different days. Finding one that fits your body size will make hours of operating it more enjoyable!

By far the most usefull attachment for your tractor will be a front end loader.
A loader of the same brand as the tractor you choose is a better chioce than an aftermarket "Will Fit" loader. The mounting points are in the right places for the tractor, the hydraulics are designed to correspond with your tractor. I'd ask the dealer you chose to work up a package of the tractor and the proper sized loader.
The newer loaders are of a quick mount design that come off and back on easily, along with quick attach buckets that can accomadate forks for pallet handling, etc, etc.
My 4310 Deere with a 430 loader I use almost daily for lifting, moving, or something. My loader has never been off the tractor in the ten years I've had the tractor.
Three point mount impliments can be of any brand they all fit the same. There are many good used impliments around for lots less than new cost, so new isn't necessary. If the machine has been beat to death just pass and wait for another one. Bush Hog type rotary cutters probably lead the hardest life, but all but the worst can be rebuilt.
Blades, landscape rakes, tillers, box blades and many other three point attachments will look and be almost good as new for years after the first buyer brought them home.

This no doubt varies from area to area but here you probably could find a good used PTO auger (another thread here is discussing this implement) but on the rough cut mower count on new and the finishing mower might can find a good one of those uses as some people have parked them for the zero turn mowers. Ask your dealer, they often know if one of their customers has such for sale if they don't.

A dealership you can develop a good relationship with is worth a lot.
