And to make the watcher feel confident that they, too, could handle the task. Which it also succeeds at admirably.

I saw an interesting comment after the video on YouTube. Someone posted that they swapped their Ag tires around so the tread was backwards for snow plowing. That makes some sense, as it is my understanding that automotive snow tires specifically try to trap snow in the treads for better traction. Apparently, snow-on-snow traction is better than rubber-on-snow.

Does anybody here do this? How much difference does it make?

Few of the videos she was in helped me out a lot, videos are clear and great audio, she explains very well, no way I could have done my touch control without it, had zero experience with hydraulics..... There was also an older post with pictures on this forum that helped out a lot with pictures
