Since my truck is broke, and I still have to install plow on it, I put a plow on the race mower.

Had a plow for a mower sitting around, little bit of welding and fabing, and it fits. Still need to put a lift on it, just using a piece of rope for now. Already bent the blade a little, but tractor didn't care. It pushes snow really well. No chains or weights, just my ag tires.

Couple of pics.

And video of high speed plowing!



And a couple of donuts when done.

Plows snow like a boss!

Picked up a winch today, need to get it mounted so I can use it to raise and lower plow.

Nice that it comes with a roller-type fairlead. A lot of the lower-end winches do not.
