The decks are 72", including the outboard wings which can be raised and lowered as they follow ground contours. The snowblower is a 48" 2-stage with drive chains on BOTH sides of the auger. There is also a 54" dozer blade that is so beefy that it is hard to move by hand.

 

I have two GK's (one from Rick!), a third parts machine, and all three standard attachments.

if you think a 2 stage blower for a LF is heavy you dont know what heavy is until you mount a blower on a GK. i havent got any snow here so i havent botheredto put mine on you need 6in of snow or they dont work right

I would love to see videos of one with a mower or blade in use. Owning one of these is still high on my want list.

I just got one and its the coolest machine I've ever or will ever own... I was lucky enough to get the cab with complete glass, the snowcaster the mowing deck and the blade. It needs little help here and there but mostly minor work. Can't wait for mowing season to start!
