Is that a poly blade?

It is not, its steel. The poly blades are heavier but according to a few people they don't like white rock drive ways. So I went steel and got the rubber flap on top plus markers.  I also have to 4" dually amber led pods i will add to the front bumper for plowing.  Pulls the utility trailer very nice too.

Got a coolant leak i still have track down but I got the snow blade assy on. This is its intended use as well as towing a trailer or I wouldn't have bought it.





If we had more snow days I'd do the same but the tractor fills the bill for me IF even needed. You have my sympathy dealing with winter there.

We don't get the snow we used too but it's looking like we may get a fair amount this winter. I am at the top of a hill. 6" of snow with wind creates 18" plus snow drifts in the north drive. It drifts up on the south side of the house where the ac unit is too. I had to shovel that whole South side to un bury the ac last year. 3' deep drifts in spots. I was shot after that and said I got figure something else out ;D

I need new batteries for the GEM. Only 1200 bux or so. BTW,you'd easily be safe running all over town with it.

We did drive it to the grocery store and your place with out issue. It was actually fun in the camp ground trails but I knew going down it was most likely a social trip. Just don't want to risk my vision for one run across the dunes In scotts rail. I did, got sand in the bad eye and decided not to take another chance. The eye has cleared up a lot this last week. Like 85% better so on the right path.

Good to hear.

One of 3 reasons i bought the defender for was to plow snow at my place. Have now used it 4 times and works surprisingly well. Not so great on white rock but def usable. Got to use it on Christmas day while the kids were still here. Grandson rode along but fell asleep in 20 mins lol

Got 9" of new snow tues and another 4" overnight. Still blowing 40 mph gusts and another 4 to 6" today. Possible additional 4 to 6" sat. The heater makes all the difference in the world! Found the limits of the snow blade and utv in the deeper snow drifts lol I drive a lesabre for a commuter car. Its not going anywhere anytime soon as seen in the pic. I don't feel like shoveling the drift and we have an awd acadia suv for snow travel.
