Congratulations on the new machine.
Might want to consider adding some weight to the top of the bucket or underside to help keep the nose down should that climbing be a recurring problem. Toro makes a kit but anything heavy works. One person added pipes and then slipped on weight lifting plate weights. Nice thing is they would be easily removable.


Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

I had seen the Toro weight kit, designed for offsetting the optional Cab kit. I will need to see how more real-world use goes before making the decision to add weight. I do like that it should be light enough now that my wife and daughter would be able to maneuver the machine, if needed.
