so im building a good snow clearing tractor out of my White LGT1655 garden tractor.

driveline:
16hp briggs oppy
beefy hydro trans

i will be putting chains on the rears tire, and building a rear weight box to put a couple hundred pounds of gravel to help with traction.

i might setup a salt sprayer to put on the rear too.

using a 120v ac linear actuator rated for 350lbs, (it actually lifts that) ill be using a small homemade inverter to power it from the 12v battery.

Cool! I've often thought about making a salt and sand spreader for my Case, make it friction drive off of the rear wheel or something like that.

That white looks sweet. I love the wheelbase on that! Should make snow clearing nice!

today i finished the mounting for the actuator, reincorced the plow, and brushed a nice thick coat of paint to protect everything and make it look a little better.

I got a craftsman one. It's got weights on the plow too for helping to keep the plow on the ground when pushing the snow along with weights on the back. I usually keep it outside in the winter and parked next to the house near an outlet. The starter is a 110v that I put on it and to start it I plug in an extension cord to it. Never have to worry about the battery being dead.

Buddy I'm sorry to say this but "brushed on paint" and "look better" don't go in the same sentence White LGT1655 Snow clearing/utility tractor 1098998679

Jk lol, it looks alright. If i were still in New York I'd definitely have the snow plow on mutt. I actually used the snow plow mounts to mount the skidplate. Never figured out a lift mechanism for it though.

Yeah but i was going for a nice strong finish.. Its hard to get that woth spraypaint.. And it more expensive. And takes more time.. So yeah. Good enought for a plow that will get all scratched up anyways..


I never have not worked on it since october but now we are starting to get some snow.. So i have to get it up and working good soon...

I actually painted the chassis black on the MTD with a brush. Like sadeoo I kinda wanted something a bit more durable. It took forever to fully cure but I dont think it turned out too bad.

Interesting setup with the linear actuator. However, I don't see any way for the blade to "float" across uneven terrain, but maybe that just isn't a concern with your driveway.
