In areas with heavier, wetter snow falls, where shoveling isn’t an appealing or even a realistic option, you might want to consider a snowblower attachment for your tractor to help ease the burden of clearing a path to
A variety of snow removal attachments are available for lawn/yard, garden and compact utility tractors.
While you can get snow removal attachments for your lawn tractor, consider that a lawn tractor is a light duty machine designed mainly for cutting lawn, so don’t overload it. And remember, you might need tire chains and wheel weights to effectively move around in icy conditions.
A better choice for light to moderate snow removal might be the heavier duty garden tractor which can be equipped with a snowblower or other snow removal attachment. Since this tractor is built with a stronger transmission and axels and generally has more horse power, it can handle a heavier load than the lawn/yard tractor. But again, know your machines limits.
The compact utility tractor is heavier duty yet and can handle a variety of snow removal attachments; snow blower, snow plow/blade or show pusher. These tractors come in a variety of sizes and models and are a good choice for moderate to heavier snow removal especially if you have a larger area to maintain.
The bottom line is, do your research and get the right snow thrower attachment for your particular tractor. If your snow blower attachment doesn’t work how and when you want it to, you may as well shovel the snow yourself.
