John Deere 1,2 or 3 series tractors

I'd like to go with the 1023e for the price but I want something that's going to get the job done so I need some opinions... definitely need a loader to scoop mulch with and a box blade, also thinking about getting a slit seeder to go behind it. What does everybody recommend between these 3 series for landscape work and some reseeding jobs.

I have a 1023E. Ive had it 2 or 3 years. IOts great with the bucket, and 3 pt hitch broadcast spreader and a 55 gal sprayer. I wouldnt put a slit seeder behind it unless its a small one. On my old 2305 JD tractor I cracked the transmission housing using a slit seeder and said I wouldnt do it on this new tractor.

I would plan for the future.... About 4 years ago we purchased a Kubota BX2360, outgrew it after a year. Now we have a B2920. The B will handle just about everything we want but there's a lot of times where we could still use a bigger tractor.

If you are just planning on literally doing "small" jobs a 1 series sub compact should be fine, but just look out for down the road.
