As for something else in the Ford/John Deere brands to look at?
The only one that I have experience with is a JD1520.
The snowblower on the farm that I grew up on was six feet and often, like I said, behind an International 856; which is nearly 100horsepower.
But, dad also had a John Deere 1520; which was also sometimes put on the snowblower when the 856 was being used on the manure spreader. The 1520 was equipped with a 146 loader and chains. When the blower was on the back, you had a decent, well balanced machine that could blow snow backwards and plow/pile snow forwards.
The 1520 still only had two reverse gears, a high and low; but they are a little slower.
The 1520 was also a gasser; so it started well in the winter; while the 856 was a big old diesel and needed to be plugged in overnight, a sniff of ether, or both.
A 1520 is about 10 more PTO horsepower than a Ford 3000 and a little heavier for traction.
