How well do the 1050s push snow?

 

Fluid fill the tires, add wheel weights and chains, tighten up the controlled differential, and it will amaze you at how much it will push.

They are a beast. My 1053 handled over a foot of snow fall last year that was wet and heavy. All I had were the snow chains and my scrauny butt for weight and I plowed half a mile of two lanes, 4 driveways (one paved and the others were gravel) and a gravel road (200 yards) and pulled a stuck car on that road.

I have a blade and blower for both of mine. I have wheel weights and chains with the blower on. It gets around fairly decent and if yiu have the blower down makin a path. Itll pretty much go anywhere. The blade gets around alittle better because its lighter then the blower

Chain them up they will push snow like mad!!  Start well in the cold too.  At least mine will start down to - 25 C no problem.

I like to keep things original if at all possible.

I have never been a fan of stacks on Garden Tractors as they just look sloppy and out of place to me.

To each his own I guess :beer:

The thing I like the most about the stack is that it quiets the engine a lot.

Good looking lineup.  I have one with the looks of the center one, less the stack.
