For snow I use my '75 1614 power king. It has a 48 inch plow and with the flexible truck tires I put on in the winter, with a good homemade set of chains, it gets all kinds of bite. I also have some baby wheel weights coming in at a mighty 36lbs a piece and a weight rack i made a few weeks ago.

The plow was designed to be used as a snow plow and a dozer blade so I have been using it to make and improve some of the logging paths in the woods, so now its covered in mud.

This is the weight rack i made, it has 200lbs on it now.

'09 was the first year I used the plow, we got 3 feet within a few days that year, here are a few pics from that. (they aren't the best)

Ill make sure to get some pics this year and a video if i can get somebody to take one... that is, if we get snow. I think the snow is scared...

That looks like a great set up, Ryan. Glad it works well for you. I have a feeling everyone is going to get dumped on soon.

I called my local TV weatherman and order a foot of snow, he told me it had been back ordered. But he would do what he could.

Wish I could afford a PK/Economy. My favorite GT tractor. Nice setup. I bet if the set was lowered a bit it would look even cooler.
