well, stick with AC... Get a large frame garden tractor B series or 700 or 900 series. No 3 point hitch but single point sleeve hitch has a greater selection of implements available.

Lots of guys here with more experience than me but I always say buy something parts are easy to get, like if you have a dealer nearby. Of course I also get what's cheap too. I love my Sears 16-6 (Suburban). The Onan twin is one smooth runner and powerful. The Kohler singles are great but a bit of a shaker IMO. I have a 212 JD with all the attachments and it is a great tractor but the stickshift is really clunky compared to the Sears and it has a horrible turning radius. It's mows better than anything I have owned though. I had a Case 220 and it was a well built tractor and very reliable but I never did get used to the controls, seemed really akward for me. I also use my sister's JD GT235 and it has been a really tough tractor, except for the plastic hood. It only mows now, we have a tiller for it but it is a nightmare to mount up.

If you want the meanest baddest GT with a 3pt get a AC/Simplicity 720/9020 won't be cheap but heavy duty.A 1655 or 1650 Massey would be next then a Craftsman FF.

Thank you all, I put all of my wants and stuff together, and I picked a SS10 with 3pt hitch, as to the question of the SS15, the owner changed his mind, He wanted BOTH my Allis AND my JD112!

It's a little late to matter to the OP, but Seargent forgot to list Ford & Jacobsen. They both had models with the ability to use 3-pt hitches.
