Thanks was a $20 special off CL.a little beat up but ,but I saved it.Was on my bolens last year.

A little fabbing for a new mount on the ford no biggey.

The ford is a hydro so snow plowing should go a little faster this year,no searching for a gear!

Seeing all this makes me really want a cab. It gets cold blowing snow on the Case. Very nice machines.

My winter outfit is the same as how I bought it.. 42" blade and an insatiable appetite for moving snow

 

Chains are coming soon and weights only if I have problems this year :thumbs:

Be careful with the chains on that yt16. I dont know about the hydros, but I have seen several busted axles on the gear tractor from pushing snow with chains on. The gear tractors had 3/4" axles. If your has 1" you should be fine

I guess I won't know how the traction is until I'm actually out there, but if there's not enough traction, would weights be better than chains as far as not overloading the axles?

The chains will mark up that nice concrete. If you can do wheel weights and fill your tires you may get away without chains. I use chains with carbide bars and have left a lot of marks on concrete and blacktop.

Here's my new rig, I don't have the 145 with the plow anymore . Didn't see a need now that this is done. I still have the little snowblower though.

The 48" blower on back is PTO driven ( homemade) with an electric angle for the chute. And the bucket is 48" too.

Got my first chance to push snow with the Ford YT! Handled 5 inches of fresh powder with ease! 

 

I was also pleasantly surprised to have absolutely no problems with traction. Looks like I'll be holding off of chains and weights. Having a nice flat concrete driveway probably helped  :thumbs:

 

Looking forward to more snow!!

Just a heads up.If its your first time plowing?

You have to PUSH the snow further than needed.Makes room for the next batch.

Them frozen snow pile don't move so easy.
