    I am awaiting the snow, just remembered I forgot to include the toro electric power shovel, believe it or not I use that thing all the time. Nothing beats electric for ease of use.

    Got the blade modified with a thicker wear bar & increased the mold board height by 6" on my factory new Cub Cadet 46" snow/dirt blade. With the help of my youngest son @ 6 years old we got the blade mounted up to my 2011 Cub Cadet GT2100 garden tractor. I have the tires loaded with -40 windshield washer fluid already so now all we have to do is put on the chains. This will be the first winter with this set up so I am anxious to try it out, last winter in Nebraska seemed like we lived in Atlanta or something, only 2 wet snows that melted in a few days. My old machine was a 1978 JD 210 with a 4 speed gear drive, I wonder how different the hydro will be? I expect it will be ALOT easier, shifting from forward to reverse a 100 times got old really fast! See included photo of all my snow removal equipment including the Cub, a 2 stage Bolens blower and of course the trusty old shovels, one for me and one for each of my 2 boys, 6 & 8 years old. We are all hoping for snowpocalypse this year! {:~()

    Great idea on the taller mold board. One thing I would suggest is add more weight than just the filled tires. Hang a few hundred pounds on the back. The more weight the better!!!

    Okay I will bite. So what does the pipe do?

    leaves the shale in the driveway instead of in the snowpile! Also less likely to bring up sod in unfrozen areas.

    Yup, lets the blade glide across stuff without digging in. I ran out of black ABS pipe long enough to cover the bottom, and the piece I had was four inches or so short. So I slid a white PVC over top of it the correct lenght. The inner ABS actually helps support the PVC and keeps it from shattering like normal. If I ever get some gas for my torches, I'd slit me a piece of well drill pipe... which is what most of the pro's that push snow for a living use.

    Funny you should say that, actually when we were at my father-in-laws ranch for Thanksgiving I found 2 suitcase weights from an OLD tractor in the barn and brought em home, I think they weigh about 75lbs each. Now all I have to do is figure out how the heck I am going to attach them to the back of the Cub, any ideas?
    I will say however I only had wheel weights and chains on my old JD 210 and had minimal tire slipping, only on steep drives & when pushing up piles.
