finally got the 455 home-with deck and snow blade.
now i just wait for some 'real' snow to come down....
it has wheel weights and chains----is there a need to add any more weight to push snow around?
does anyone have a user manual? ,,,,

any comments or advice welcome---also has a 60" deck----i see it is not the favorite size with lots of owners?thanks,:confuse::confuse::confuse:

The 455 is a nice GT, most of the guys here don't own anything that new. You might want to post in the manual needed thread in the JD forum to ask about a manual. I hope this helps, and please post some photo's when you get the chance.

Zolt, you should do pretty well with some wheel weight and chains. You also have a Dif lock as well which helps. Snow conditions vary so much that you'll have to give it a go as is for a while to get a feel for it. No sense adding more weight if you don't need it. Chains make a huge differance IME. Have fun!

Zolt, I added chains and no extra weight to mine. It has no problem pushing 6-8 inches of wet snow. That includes a slight up hill incline. Have fun!
