Wi guy! I'm from Janesville/Milton area, now in IN. GM trasfer. Being in WIS, you should look at Case or Economy Power Kings. Both were built there and have good following. Also the IH Cub Cadets of old. Loaders aren't the real work machines people think when on a GT, and some get overworked. Case had 600 series that had built on loaders and maybe backhoes but a little more rare. Later model Power Kings in METAL body are pretty good and easy to fix and adapt at home. May have 3pt hitches on many of these brands and others. The Heavy Massey Fergesons are great too. Check out ebay and Caigslists to see what is out there. Check all the dealers in your areas, sometimes in Back rows you can fnd a fix-er-upper if willing to work on them. Even regular junkyards have some things setting around in some cases.
Just remembered the MTD 990 series sold by Farm and Fleet and many others that are pretty decent size tractor. I just picked one up last summer to rebuild at the Rock Thresheree. Going to shows and swaps are real good way to find a deal also. Those F and F tractors were Farm Kings or Ranch Kings and usually Red for your area! Some were hydro and others manual depending on engine sizes and models. 3pt hitch on bigger ones.
