Not knowing what your need for a tractor, makes it hard to make recommendations. If you want a small, comfortable hobby tractor and you have deep pockets, one of the little Ford “N” series tractors is hard to beat. I’m and old, long past farm boy, who has spent a lot of time on small tractors. If I had a need for one of the little buggers now, I think I would go for a small Oliver tractor, because of all the amenities they had. And they are less money than Fords. The Fords are neat, but normally OVER PRICED! Some things to look at are: 1.Do you need a 3 point hitch. 2. Do you need a “down pressure” hydraulic system, 3, do you need a Hydraulic system, 4. Gas or Diesel. 5. Wide or narrow front end . 6. $2000 or $20000 ???????? Evan has the right idea, If you can make a Jeep (CJ-5) or a Old Rover, do the job, it will do you multiple service. Plow the snow and then take you to have a beer or get the mail!

I would rather have tools that I never use, than not have a tool I need.
