Tractor or Mower (Kubota)

We are looking to buy something for when we get another piece of property. This property will likely be 10 or less acres. Most of the acreage is wooded and won't be used for anything. The actual acreage would be 3-5 acres that need to be maintained regularly. That said, we don't want to spend 25K on a tractor with front loader and major attachments unless it's absolutely required.

My question is what is the minimum I can get away with? I know I will need 4wd for sure, but as far as horsepower? We will use it to push or blow snow and I see that even the compact riding mowers come with pull behind brush hog options and snow blower options. We will need to cut grass and brush hogs aren't great with grass cutting.... I guess I am torn because I do not know right now if a front loader option is something I would need. :/

My question is more related to Kubota specifically because I have used them and like them the most. General specs will work too though!

I went with the BX-25, its the perfect SCUT for 10 acres. It has the 48 inch FEL, 60 inch MMM and BH mounted to sub-frame and came with 3 point hitch kit for other attachments. I clear snow on 1600 ft drive way, dig trenches, dig holes, carry all kinds of items aroubd in FEL, spread gravel in my drive way, I mow everything the mower eats up tall grass like Tasmanian Devil. Granted it does have limitations but I am extremely happy with that little tractor
