Finally.....SNOW

Recommended Posts

I couldn't get any pics but I just got done plowing 6" with my new snow set up. I upgraded to a 46" plow, AGS, and wheel weights and this was the first snow I had to play in. I had 42" plow and loaded turfs I ran before. I know most of you know this but wow the 46" is heavy compared to the 42". And even with wheel weights I didn't have enough traction until I put chains on. But in the end being able to angle from the seat was all worth it.

Sounds like you had some fun there. We had no snow to speak of this season until last night. We were supposed to get 2" but ended up with 8" +. Of course the mower deck was still on and the tractor was buried in snow. I just drove the Escape over the snow and while I was at work Dad used the walk-behind blower to clear the drive. I had found when I was using my B-110 that I preferred the 42" blade. I had much less trouble with traction and steering was easier.

Yeah Chris,

I know that blade weighs in at about 84 lbs. Plus when You angle it fully, the front wheels (without weights), will tend to slide. "ribs" or

Ags on the front might also help.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
