Recently purchased a Ford 4500 TLB and am in the process of getting it back in working order.
I haven't run any equipment in 15-20 years. My father owned several pieces of equipment that I used when growing up. The JD440 dozer he had was one of my favorites, 6 way blade and a backhoe attachment. I would consider going that route instead of the TLB. He also had an old JD tricycle tractor but I can never remember the model. He fabricated a boom for the 3 pt and used it for skidding logs. He also bought a 4wd Belarus for logging at one point.
Anyway, that is a little about me.
