Hello, looking for a Ford LGT / IH Cub Cadet / JD 300/400 / Simplicity / etc or any heavy duty garden tractor with a front loader for moving dirt and gravel, something that has power and relatively easy to find parts.
Preferred working condition, could take on a project if it's complete, I don't want to be hunting for NLA parts. Not looking for a museum piece.
Attachments that would be nice to have: snow plow blade (quick attach to bucket or separate) or blower for deep snow, chains, weights, mower deck, tiller.
Would prefer something in the Thompson or Okanagan but open to tractors for sale in BC and Alberta. I've got some searches set up on Kijiji but thought I'd try here too. Got a Craftsmen II LT for mowing the acreage but after shoveling gravel by hand all last summer I think it's time for some hydraulic muscle.
