This is the tractor I bought last fall.It was a worker. Never had a mower deck on it. Push blade, tiller, and 540 pto.

So I added deck hangers and used it all this year for cutting grass. And 2nd last cutting the front PTO kept kicking out. So today I said p*ss on it. Pulled the deck and put the blade on it. Will have to find a pto this winter for it.

Have the blade on the H16 and it is ready to go.  My put chains on it yet but not sure.  Need to service the thrower and put it on the G12 w/14 hp Tech.  Rest of the herd will be parked in the machine shed and covered with a tarp.  Steel building and they really like to sweat and drip all over everything.  glad I put blue board on the garage roof under the steel.  No dripping in there.

Are you able to keep all your snow cleared with just the blades or do you have a blower as well? I don't really have anywhere to push the snow to at my place, so I use a blower (walk behind  for now).

Looks like it will do the job. Most years I can get by with a blade. Last year was an exception. Needed a blower and a loader bucket at times to keep things clear. I'm still in denial about winter coming again!

No Jim,i need a blower here lol. I have a half mile driveway. So I have a MF blower on one 1655 and a 2stage sears blower on another 1655. The blade tractor is just for clean up around the house and shop. Or if I get bored. Lol. Where are you located Jim?

I am just outside of Coldwater, about 1/2 hr north of Barrie. I have Mount St Louis on one side of me and another huge ridge on the other side that channel the winds and storms coming off Georgian Bay. It is usually windy here even when it isn't storming. The past 2 winters I have had a 4' deep drift between the house and barn. My garden shed where I keep the blower is beside the barn, I use snowshoes to get to it and to get to the barn to feed, water and collect eggs. I even use a toboggan to get feed from the truck to the barn. The only time I clear the path between the house and barn is when I need to blow snow to clear the driveway. It usually takes about 40 minutes to clear the driveway and by the time I am done the path back to the shed has drifted back in. 

 

I looked up where Bluevale is and I see you are not far from Lake Huron, so I am sure you get hit pretty hard as well with the snow off the lake.

Middle of a snowstorm, out in the driveway with the truck headlights on highbeam to light up what you are trying to fix? Oh yeah, good times.
