    I wouldn't even know how to go about doing that. That would be like a foot higher then most blades. How did you do it, just curious?

    I run a 10 foot fisher plow on one tractor and a 8 foot frontier blower on the front of the other tractor. 9 times out of 10 I use the plow. The plow is faster and cheaper and as long as you start the year out by pushing your banks back you shouldn't have much trouble, If banks get out of control put the bucket on. The last thing is with out a cab plan on eating a lot of snow if you use a blower, when Im done with the blower my tractor looks like a snow bank on wheels.

A blower would be nice, but limited use and something else to maintain.
    That is an AWESOME looking jeep setup you have there For heavy snow removal, the problem comes down to weight, or lack of weight, with a small vehicle like that. I don't think you'd have a problem with clearance though

    Thanks bud. She weighs in at 5,200lbs. I haven't had traction be a problem yet... but I'd put some chains on her if it was an issue. 4-6" of snow is normal here...10" might happen once or twice a year. Everything's a compromise... fat tires tend to float over the snow instead of digging down... but they sure make "ramping up" the snow easy.

    I picked the blade up and pushed it on a angle towards the edge of the drive way as far as a could. Then I kept dropping the blade down a bit and pushed it more until I was down to the driveway. The worst part is getting a start, you need to get a area so you can move up and back. When I got done I had a very narrow path that was wide enough for a vehicle.

    Just my .02Cnd

    The Guy who plows my long S driveway uses a farm tractor with chains & cab and has a pickup snow blade on a homemade frame attached to the bucket of the front end loader and a left/right hydraulics to the blade and normal up down on the loader it looks like heck but works very well one main advantage I can see is he can push a bank very high 7-10ft

    Any comments what works best to keep your gravel ON the driveway (I know asphalt works the best ). Can you put skid shoes or plates on a front or back blade? Or maybe even on a FEL?

    You can install skid shoes on anything...might take a bit of fabrication or welding. This includes your loader bucket.
    When I plow with my bucket, I keep it curled back. That, in most cases, keeps the front lip of the bucket about an inch off the surface.

    I use a drag type snow blower, often called an inverted blower.
    I have no trouble driving thru the snow and then let the blower get rid of it.
    Since you are going forward you have many gears to choose from so you can find a speed to match the blower load on the tractor.
    I built the drag blade on the back of the blower to pull snow away from shop doors. It is built out of 1/2" plate so I also use it for leveling gravel and ground.
