Plowing Some Snow

Postby VinceD » Fri Mar 22, 2013 7:04 pm

We got 9" of snow last night so I used the opportunity to push some around with the LowBoy. First time I have ever plowed snow with a Cub. Had a ball and the Cub worked like a charm!!!! (MODS - if this should be in a different forum please feel free to move and sorry about that.)

Plowing snow is great seat time. Looks like you know what you're doing. As much as I like pushing snow, I'm ready for warm weather. Thanks for posting the pic's.

We have about 4" so far this evening with the snow expected to last until Sunday morning. I may get to plow a little tomorrow if it keeps coming down.

Looks to me like the poor little feller spent the night out in the cold himself! Extra snow on the hood for weight, right? :mrgreen:
I've never met a tractor I didn't like....but I have found some that were greatly annoying....

that storm is supposedly coming our way, but it looks as if it will pass north of us. What a shame. :{_}:

You are correct, Sarge. Pippin had quite a snow cap from sitting outside. The weight did help!!!

Curious about your 3-point platform. Home made? I'd like to see some photos without snow on it sometime. I do need to make something like that for moving bee hives & equipment around. We only got a serious snow dusting out of the last blast. Greg

Greg, that's actually a 1-pt quick hitch carry-all. Works great.

Greg, here is an idea for you.

If you want one for a three point you can buy the frame already made at Tractor Supply, Rural King etc
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Thanks, guys. Shouldn't be too hard to make one. I might like to add some sort of articulation so it stays fairly flat while raising. This might make a real handy rig to have.
