If possible probably best to have dedicated loader for loader work, not use for mowing, Maybe keep current tractor for mowing?
Better ground clearance w/o mower, save wear&tear, mowing hard on engine.   Look for  GT w/foot pedal hydro for ease operation, stout front end, loader is hard on spindles&steering and steel frame not sheet metal.  I'd bolt a weight box on back not worry about rear hitch just use the loader as a loader just my 02

The only part I disagree with, or at least do differently, is keep a scraper blade on the rear, the two together are extremely useful. And the weight of the blade along with the leverage of the blade being out behind the tractor will work as well as a weight box, or at least mine does.

Massey Ferguson 1450 or 1655 are good tractors that have the foot control. I would like to see pictures of your loader when you can get them.

I agree with what you said but not thrilled with the factory mower but that's just my opinion.  Otherwise MF/Snapper 1450 through 1855 are great tractors.  Oh yea and....... :welcometogttalk:  :welcometogttalk:
