The only issues I've seen with this type of arrangement is the equipment. If you provide the equipment, first off, you're responsible to maintain it, which may be difficult depending on whether or not the tenant properly uses it or misuses it. Second, which would be my big concern, is if you provide the equipment and the tenant doesn't know how to use it safely, are you protected if they cut their hand off in the snow blower? Honestly, it's not a path I'd want to try to debate myself out of.
