Here is a picture of me this morning in Gaylord after pushing some of the snow in a row with the 5400 JD getting ready to snowblow it into the yard. With over 6 inches and many 2 foot drifts it would have been a workout for the 455 and blade. But I did get it out and play on it cleaning up and i still that it is a great little snowplow. This afternoon I might have to try it out plowing the backyard, ha,ha. I posted a video with an attachment today on my webpage if anyone would like to see it at www.doncampbellmodels.com donsnowplow2012.jpg

Don, that looks like lots of fun. That tractor just plays with the snow. It looks like you have a box blade mounted to the loader arms. It works really well whatever it is!

It is fun sharing snowplowing videos because I love watching other people plowing snow too. The 5400 does move a lot of snow especially once I start snowblowing with it. I spent almost a hour playing on the 455 today in the snow too. We got another 2 or 3 inches tonight so I'll be back in the seat again in the morning . I built the front blade with quik-tach brackets for the loader and with reversable folding side wings . When pulling snow back from residential driveways it works great ! I also put front fenders and widened the rear fenders for traveling down the roads in sloppy conditions. They keep the windows on the cab nice and clean . Without them the slop from the tires threw up on the side windows and couldn't see anything.
