Yes! but why was the wheel turned in wrong direction? the valve was on the inside..  

Well I've only had the tractor for some week now .. What more can I find ?? When I removed the wheels, it was so much grass.

The previous owner might have had a narrow spot somewhere. That he wanted it in the narrow spacing to get through. The areas that have grass packed in will be the ones that need cleaned every so often.

Shorty you're probably right.

Thank you all!

 

I will return when I have pictures of the bracket to the snow blade.

If ag tires you have to flip side to side to keep bars in right direction. Turfs don't need that. Valve stem inside is not a problem, many have them that way when new, think it protects them from getting hit and broken off, but is a PIA.  Mostly on fronts is where they do that.

Yes now I have add the snowblade.

I use the lift for the moverdeck and a wire and a few blocks.

The wire was a bit narrow so it was hard not to get it to slide

lever "1" moves about 7cm, at "2" is a block, so the movement at the plow gets 2x7 = 14 cm

Now I just need to wait for the snow so I can try.

10cm of snow, first real test, it worked well.
The beam that holds the blade goes against the front axle when lifting the plow, so it can not lift so high. But it is a good test that it works to plow. I have to make a front linkage to make it work perfectly fine. But it will have to do this winter.
