I got a set of wheel weights, a rear weight, and two doughnut weights from Dan (rokon2813). Thanks again Dan!

I'll start with the blade this winter and then put this on.

I got all the weight because I'm gonna try to go without tire chains, don't wanna mark up the asphault. I may have to get ag tires for it. Let me know what you think.

Nice tractors & attachments! To push/blow any serious snow you will need tire chains(or cable,rubber,plastic type :Y) However I have a blacktop drive & chains don't hurt mine. but I mostly use the blower & dont spin the wheels much...

Thanks for the comments guys, I appreciate the advice. I've got the tire chains and if traction is an issue I'll put them on and see. I don't think wheel spin will be much of an issue with all the weight I have on it. Last time I used the blower was two winters ago and I didn't have any weight (besides myself :D) and traction was a big issue even with the chains. I have the original 8 horse motor, but it needs to be gone through as it burns oil like a forest fire C. Someday I'll get the original 8 horse back in it and get the seat recovered.

Bar chains, (the kind with claws that stick out) are a lot nicer on asphalt surprisingly. I have a set for one and a round standard set for the other and the claw set slips a lot less than the round ones which makes for almost no marring.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
