Like it or not, winter is always just around the corner and with it comes that wonderful white fluff. Snow is beautiful but it sure can put a crimp in your lifestyle. If you own a tractor, whether it is of the lawn, garden, compact utility or farm variety, you can put it to work for you and make your life a little easier.
There are a variety of attachments available to turn your tractor into a plowing machine.
Putting a snow plow/blade attachment on your lawn/yard tractor will serve you well if you have only light quantities of snow to move. Remember that this type of tractor is a light duty machine designed primarily for cutting your lawn. You will also need to consider some additional accessories, such as tire chains and wheel weights, to help the little machine get around on icy surfaces.
The garden tractor, which is heavier and more powerful than its distant cousin the lawn tractor, is a good choice when you need to move light to moderate amounts of snow. When equipped with a snow plow blade attachment you will be able to clear snow from larger sidewalks and driveways. Since garden tractors come in all sizes and shapes, be sure to consider the limitations of your machine. When in doubt, ask an expert.
A compact utility tractor attachment would be the next step up in size and power for removing snow. The snow blade works very well when attached to a machine of this caliber. This option is great for commercial clearing of parking lots and driveways.
Do your homework and get the right attachment for your tractor. Also consider what you are going to be demanding of your tractor and make sure it is up to the task.
