Re: JD or Husqvarna
None of those in the OP would be my choice especially with moldboard plow. I look for something with a real 3 point hitch and heavy frames to mount a front loader like a used John Deere 430, 455, x495, or x595 would be better, no smaller. These all have long lasting diesel engines, 2 or 3 spool hudraulics, power steering, diff lock and weigh over 1000# without mower. Even an older subcompact: Deere, Kubota, Yanmar
