Here is my snow removal tractor made for beating on. I bought it for a spare motor for my suburbans. For 75 bucks. I have the newer style plows for my suburbans that mount with one pin . Which in my opinion mount so much nicer than the older style. I got tired of beating on my good restored tractors in the snow. This newer gt16 already had a mount which was a bit skinnier. I only had to drill one hole in t mount to get my suburban plow on it. And one in the lift link under the tractor to get it to pick up high enough. And I drilled two holes in the floor boards to mount the lift arm. I had a set of chains for 23x10.50 tires . The gt 16 had skinny tires the chains wouldn't fit. So I put an extra set of wider tires and wheels on it and some spare wheel weights I had. It all fit really good after the small modified mount I did. I'm really excited to try it out because I do not have to care about this tractor so much. Because it is not that great. So I can hog on it a bit. I included a pic of my gt18 mount so you can see how it was made. And also my garden plow 3pt sleeve hitch adapter some of you guys wanted to see. I apologize about the pics. This new Samsung phone always posts sideways on here no matter what way I hold it. My only problem is picking the toy I want to use . I have a custom 10 with snowblower I can use. This blue 16. And a big toro power max for snow.

How good do those sears snowblowers throw? I have one on my custom 10xl. Never got to try it yet. Believe it or not tge lawn mower one the custom one and the suburban one were all the exact same blower as long as it is the sears blower not the Haban. The only difference on them is the mounting bracket to fit the different frames. The one on my custom 10 is from a sears 837 I think they were called that was the lawn mower. Just got a pic of the rear mounting bracket and made the mount. I can't wait to try it out either.

To be honest I am not sure yet I have never used a sears in snow. Last year I have my horse and a simplicity 3415H

The simplicity was a beast getting though the snow, but the blower was weak in wet stuff and the belt system has a 90 deg bend to it so it really tough on belts compared to the straight belt system on the sears and the horse.
