We want to teach you the proper and safe way to use your tractor implements to remove snow.
If you do not feel that you understand these steps and strategies, or can perform them safely, consult your tractor dealer or local mechanic.
Winter is here.
And that means snow needs to be removed. Or it will need to be removed soon.
This means you will need one of three types of tractor implements.
Here they are:
A snowblower is a popular option.
Many snow blowers use an auger to chop snow and feed it into an impeller. Then the snow is expelled through the chute.
One thing to remember is that snow needs to be blown before it gets too heavy. Therefore, do not let much snow accumulate.
If the snow is too heavy, it places a great deal of strain on the blower.
Keep in mind that if you have a front-mounted blower, you must make sure to remove buckets and loaders.
Moving snow with a blade is easy, effective, and straightforward.
A plow blade will allow you to clear snow closer to the ground than you can with a snowblower.
Blades come in a slew of styles, sizes, and various mounting options. You can get a rear mount, sub-frame, or front-mounted blade.
Plow blades are also used for other work tasks throughout the year.
A snow pusher is simply a large box that pushes snow.
Pushers are great implements because they can move a large amount of snow at one time --- far more snow than a plow blade.
They also do not leave “wind rows” like plow blades.
Pushers are great for open areas, big areas, and empty lots.
There are also pull back blades in these pushers that can help remove snow close to garage doors. Pushers are only built for front-mounting, so you lose some of the flexibility of other blades.
All three implements are effective.
