I know that to plow I need weight on the rear, and as much as I'm comfortable with. But I had been thinking about coming up with duals on the back for a while now. Either just for show or for stability so I can cut on my hillside. But what about for plowing - am I better off with one single 6 inch tire per side or dual 6 inch tires on each side? I'd have to put weight on either way.
I got in my pulleys for the tractor. I had trouble with using 3.5 inch pulleys on the mower idler so I swapped them out for a set of the 3 inch reinforced nylon pulleys from McMaster. I had problems with the 3.5 inch pulleys clearing the steering linkages so this will definitely solve that problem. McMaster said these pulleys are tough. We'll find out.
It was just dumb luck that the 3.5 inch pulleys that I'm taking off of the tractor are the perfect ones to go on the snowblower. Take a look at the one which is on the snowblower versus the one to it's right which is going to go on. I'm betting this is going to reduce belt wear quite a bit. That old one was nasty and you can see that the damage to it from its former life is probably the reason why this stopped getting used in the first place.
