It'* different when someone is plowing it though. A truck with the right setup can be amazing.

My neighbor just had larger tires put on his jeep. Opps, changed the plow set up. Now ever time he hits the snow the plow flops over flat.

That'* as simple as wrong angle or wrong trip edge pressure. But yep.. change one thing and ....life can suck.

Was talking to him today and he said he'* looking at a snow blower attachment for the jeep. Can't drive on the road with it, but would be great for clearing snow around here.

Next spring I'll be getting a new lawn tractor, of course a little on the overkill side. I'm hoping to do enough sidework to buy the 44" or so blower attachment for the front of it. Plowing is great in some storms, but it'* cool being able to pick it up and throwing it 40 or so feet.

When I was in my first house the neighbor had a John Deer tractor with every attachment, including the snow blower. That thing was nice. Had the tiller for the summer, a little trailer, wheel weights, you name it.

Ive got a john deere walk behind with chains (a must) works great for the deeper and hardpacked snow but i have to watch out it will throw the rocks . I have to stop every time a car comes by and I keep the discharge pointed down , had a rock hit the house across the street once . keep a paddle flapper blower in garage for the lite stuff .
