If your primary intended uses for this tractor are moving snow and mowing lawn, find a belly mower. You'll be much happier, as will the tractor. If you cover rough ground (fields and woods), or need one or both Touch Control rockshafts frequently for other work, go with a rear PTO mower that can be more easily dropped and hooked.
I don't have a belly mower, but I believe they lift from the same rockshaft as the front blade, so you'd have to drop the blade if you go that way, and drop the mower for winter - a good idea anyway.
As for weight? Keep it as light as reasonably possible - you're cutting a lawn, not chopping buck brush. For reference, I would guess the Woods belly mower weighs about 225#. Someone who has one (or a faster internet connection) can give you the exact weight.
Of course, you could get a Cub with a belly mower for the wife/gf/SO - smaller, lighter, more manuverable, and makes everything it touches look good (lawn included). Just remember to ask before you use HER tractor.
