    Default First Big Snow of the Year

    I have a fairly long driveway as shown below:

    This set-up below works pretty good, much faster than the tractor, up to about 6-8 inches, unfortunately we had some pretty good winds, so drifted area was almost waist deep:


    Had to fire up my buddys tractor to get my truck out, thought I could make it to the garage, but no such luck...My tractor doesn't have chains, his does, this thing goes thru the snow pretty good (sorry for the picture quality, the wife was taking them, think she used the wrong setting....

    looks good, the only thing I'd worry about is with the speeds those things are capable of, some one could get launched if they hit a stationary object at to fast a speed.

    I've toyed with the idea of getting a quad, my brother has a Polaris also very similar to yours, if I did get one I'd have to get a plow or some other attachment for work related tasks, that way I could write it off as a business expense.
