    I Don't think tillers work very good at snow removal though it might break up ice on a driveway

    The Plow looks good I imagine that with the addition of chains its pretty much unstoppable.

    You could opt for a setup that attaches to the bucket or loader arms and lift would be a non-issue. The new BX quick hitch system has the loader arm capability. Of course that comes at an extra price.
    Well I was way off on the 18". I guess it looks to be 18 when you're sitting in the seat but I measured from a flat surface to the bottom of the blade edge with the plow straight and fully up... only 8"! However, like I stated, I plowed a 2600 ft gravel driveway with no issues.

    I imagine it wouldn't lift any higher than the 2750 blower since its connected to the same quick attach. Seems like a bit of a drawback if you're hoping to pile snow into mounds with it but for straight snow plowing it should work fine.

    Well I tried to keep up the blizzard, but by morning I had to put the FEL back on, way too much snow and ice to use the plow!

    Same here, had to have my buddy come by with his truck and plow the main areas of our property. We still had to dig him out a few times. Doubt we'll see another storm like that for a long time.

    Same here. Except, to put the loader on, we had to shovel about 120' out to the shed where I had it stored. Not fun.
