Quite a few to choose from in terms of vintage GT's. To name a few of some of the more prominent brands, there are:

Allis Chalmers/Simplicity
Bolens
Case/Ingersoll
Jacobsen/Ford
John Deere

You really cannot go wrong with any vintage GT. They were built to stand the test of time and so were their attachments.

Some manufactures can be harder to find parts for than others so it is important to find one that is complete and in decent shape.

It really comes down to the design and features of the machine itself and what it most important to you. For example, the large frame Bolens GT's of the 1960's were equipped with automatic hydro transmissions versus a comparable brand of the same era that might have had a gear drive trans instead.

It sounds like from what you describe that you are looking for one that has more than one PTO. Typically the larger GT's offered by the manufactures offered this compatibility.
