Nice rig. Do you have chains on the rear tires? Good Luck, Rick

Very nice! I rotated the picture for you. How do those HDAP tires work for plowing snow. They would probably give even better traction if you lowered the pressure to the point where you are getting a bit of squat in the sidewall. I find chains are nice to have even with 4wd and a big tractor. They aren't too pricey for 26x12/12.

I've found a better way to handle snow. I leave it where it is and move myself far, far away. Human Beings were meant to be migratory!

Looks like a nice snow pusher,, I hope you are way ahead of time, We don't usually get much snow accumulation here until the first of December.

No chains

Thanks, the tires work great.  I haven't had traction issues.  Thats a good idea with the tire pressure.
