Nothing is ready yet, it hasn't started snowing. No time for winter, I'm still working on last springs' projects. Good Luck, Rick

When plowing snow with my 214 I normally run 50lb wheel weights along with ag tires. I've got a new unopened set of chains that I bought for last winter,only having one plowable snow all winter I didn't see a need to open them! :smilewink:

Old Red (Bolens QT-16) drives through deep snow without a problem using turf tires, weights, and chains.

Bolens HT20D with a soft cab, turfs (PO said that they are loaded with CaCl), 2-link chains, and a hydro angle blade. I do have weights I could put on it, but it does well enough without them.

Converted from 12 to 21hp. diesel. In the process of speeding up the blower right now.

The loader is used in the tight spots where there blower won't work.

Fairly simple for me.  The Massey gets chains front and back and the rear wheels are loaded with Rimguard.  Tractor has a 5 foot power angle blade.  That's about it.  Clears snow pretty quick!

We got a few snow storms here in the mid south last year. Using our 149 & 42" plow w/weights or our 1250
w/weights & fluid filled rears. No chains or blowers...as of yet. 149 this season will have an extra set of
weights.
