Yeah, this was our first decent snowfall 4-5 inches. Layer of ice in the middle. So I passed on my little 20" snowthrower and did get the panzer out for the first time w/ the plow. It did really well. I was also glad to see that the spring trip I made worked well, too. It tripped over when I went to come up the bump from the street onto our drive. Otherwise there'd be a chunk of asphalt missing right there.

The only other rig I've ever had to plow snow with was a grizzly atv. I'd say the panzer w/ chains has about the same traction as the atv in 4 wheel (no chains). Maybe just a tad less, though. Got some heavy uphill pushing in trying to clear the last 5 feet on the side of the road which the town plow left behind. We park on the street sometime, too. The big difference between an atv & tractor is that a tractor feels more solid because there's no suspension to be constantly flexing. I thought I'd miss the winch lift, but found that the Panzer lift is actually quicker- you reach down and smack it with your left hand and it's up... or down in a flash.



Good to hear the Panzer is doing it job. I haven't actually seen one in person but they look built heavy. I agree on the lift. I find after I put the electric actuator on my PK, that is was actually a pain for using the straight plow. The V plow on the other hand is so heavy that I don't miss the hand lift at all when using that. :D

Ice is no fun at all. I'd rather have a foot of snow than ice. Please keep your ice there and stay safe.

But I be on a powerking that the lift would be extremely heavy by hand. I say I like the hand lift on the panzer, but it's only 42 inches wide.

As for the heaviness of it. A panzer to plow connection is just an automotive rear end and a plow connected by 2 big tubes. Doesn't get any simpler than that.
