Lawn tractor plow

Saturday we had less then 2" of fluff, shortly after it rained. With 100 +ft long T shaped driveway, it was not possible to shovel or blow.... I'm looking at a plow blade for my tractor... any of you guys have basic setups?





The blade is 340, bracket 50 weights 100 (for 85lbs of weights) and 60 for chains.... 650 and I'd have not only a back up but something for slush.

OMHO but you should get a garden tractor. Lawn tractors are good for mowing lawns and pulling a cart around.
Those Deere d series are pretty lightweight machines.

The jd 110 will plow slush without concern. Just keep in mind it's limitations.

I have a cheapo jd125 that pulled the transaxle out dumped the awful 5w-30 oil out and refilled with synthetic 5w-50 as per tuff torqs recommendation.

From my experience the power won't be the issue. It will be traction. Get yourself an extra set of wheels with either AG tires and run it all low psi,or studded tires. Chains will reak havoc on your trans due to the constant slip than grab characteristics. Even the 2 link designs I didn't find as effective as a good set of proper tires. I had a Snapper RER (Forrest Gump) with AG tires that plowed light snow better than my IH Cub with chains. Just my 2 cents.
