Brother Rick brought his newly purchased Sears Tractor and Plow down tonight and took a few trips down the garden with it.

Maybe tomorrow he can return with the disk. :D

Nice unit. I think a set of wheel weights and some chains will make it even better.

YES!   With no weights or fluid in the tires it was slipping, even in that soft garden.  I have a set of weights and chains but they are on my snow pushing cub cadet.     I'll need those and properly set-up the plow for depth and angle.    Rick

Rick, my 12 has roughly 135 of weight on the right wheel and 160 on the left. Oversized tires with chains and it will still spin the left wheel once in a while. I will say that it will turn a trench (at one event with very hard ground and guys struggling to turn 4, my lil ole Sears was turning 7+.

I have noticed it slipping less now that I stopped smoking. I also noticed my pants are tighter. Wonder if these things have anything to do with each other.... :D
