    Looking for something to work around the farm. Tractor with loader would work for other things rake-bale but have other tractor for that already. Or skid steer for chores like manure etc. I have a 3010 JD but only has one hyd. Outlet would run a loader but couldn't do anything else that needs hyd. Leaning more towards skid steer for moving bales yard work level rock push snow.

    add a hydraulic outlet,

    you can add 2 more hydraulic outlets to the 3010. gonna have to run reinforced front rims with a loader, btw.

    talk to your local JD mechanic or dealer.

    skid steer works better if your working under roofs....depending on your buildings.

    4wd tractor is definitely more versatile...runs a lot faster than a skid steer.

    Ya but 3010 has a Aftermarket wide front under it (swarartz) looks really light built. What would be a good skid steer to look for? Something pretty good sized but would like to keep it under 15K

    Bobcat is likely the best.
    CAT should be decent too.

    depends on what's common there....Dealer support is a big deal.
