What kind should I get?

Hey, so I'm looking at picking up an old ride on, but I'm not sure which brand I should keep my eye out for. I'm looking for a older (70's-90's) one, it will mainly be used for work, plowing, digging and to redo my gravel parking pad it will probably never mow as I have a small yard, and I have a little electric push behind(SHHHHHH! Don't tell the lawn mower gods!). I have heard good and bad things about all the brands, which one do you guys prefer? It may also be used for fun, so some occasional ATV trails and such.

Budget is about 500bux, I can do all the work it need myself, I have a experience with small engine and such too. No, I do not want a front end loader as all I have is a little shed to store it in, its just big enough for a ride on. I'm looking for one this size:

ah so you want a garden tractor. well, for the money, you cant beat a sears. they are cheap, easy to work on, last forever, and super heavy duty with an AWESOME transmission.. give me a few minutes to see whats on craigslist
couldnt find any on craigslist, and i dont like kijiji, but heres an example: $500 gets you a MINT tractor, a mower, a snow/dirt plow, and a 3pt hitch
