chicken, come on live a little.

Been there, done that! Spent enough time sleeping out in that mess while deployed to Norway on several different occasions.

It is really easy to operate.  It has reverse and power turn.  The tractor does all the work.  A light pull on the control grip steers it.  It is well balanced.  I would not be using it for 55 years if it was a struggle to run.

I have plowed with my Waterbury. It did move an impressive amount of snow. No reverse though. The biggest problem for me is I have a Bradley plow on it 16" wheels compared to 12" wheels and the handle bars are way too low. Also don't help that I am 6'-4". I have looked locally for 2 years and have not found a plow for a 12" wheeled machine. I may cut the Bradley one down one of these days, they seem quite common around here so I don't think it will be too much of a crime. I also thought that a section of old water heater tank might be a good start for a new build.

 

Fun thread all.

I think a Gravely plow would be the easiest to modify for any two wheel tractor.  They are four feet wide and have a nice curve that rolls the snow easily.  They are very rugged rolled from one quarter inch steel plate, and there is usually one for sale at most tractor shows in the 25 to 50 dollar range.  You would just have to make a hitch to adapt the plow to your tractor.
