Affordable cut/scut with loader recommendations

Hi all, I'm in the market for a used small tractor with [at minimum] a loader. With a hoe as well would be great, but I'm finding I'm priced out for a used Kubota BX25 or the like, so I'm having to downsize my wants to something like a BX2200 or a comparable machine. I need some advice on what brands/models I should be keeping an eye for.

I don't need anything fancy, just something I could haul mulch/dirt with mostly. Maybe also hook up a wider finish mower to, so as to cut down my time on my current 50" deck (Craftman tractor). Matter of fact, the more simple the tractor the better, I need this thing as bulletproof as possible.

Preferably 4wd, but at minimum a locking diffy because I got terrain here. I'm hoping to keep it under $7k. Any pointers from you guys would be much appreciated!

My advice is check use the filter to narrow down the tractor you are looking for and do this every couple days. Be patient and you will find one.

Here a very nice 30hp compact. Offer them $7500.
Ha Country, guess what I bought? A MF! We upped our budget, got a very gently used GC1710. I mean very gently, barely made it past the first 50 hr service. I've been working that bad boy hard the last few days.
Awesome, you won't regret that. Great tractor!
