Howdy! Please help me figure out the right tractor for me

Hi there.

I just found this site yesterday with some googling.

I leave in Barto, PA. I've got a ~40 year old Cub Lo-Boy for mowing my hilly 3 acres.

After struggling with this under-powered tractor for a couple years, I've finally decided I need something with more horsepower. The Lo-Boy can climb hills and it can mow but it can't do both simultaneously.

So, if somebody could offer some suggestions, I'd love to hear 'em. I'm open to suggestions of new or used, probably can't afford to even consider something over $10k. I'd much rather spend about half that, if possible. I think a belly mower would be the best because there are some tight spots I've got to deal with.

Other than mowing, I might like to use it for snow removal eventually.

In my previous job we had 2 tractors in the workshop, a Kubota G21 and a Husqvarna zero-turn (EZ 4624 if i remember?). We always used the zero turn when working on hillier sites as we found it much more maneauverable (sp?) and a lower centre of gravity.
