    Teikas I'm surprised you went even the 20'. Homage goes to your ballast. A nice pair of 2 link ladder chains would improve your traction further.
    They're calling for more snow Wed and then again Thur-Fri. For the life of me I do not know where I'm gonna put it. I was hoping this was the last snow of the season for that reason.

    I found that if I feathered the loader and started lifting it towards the end of the push it got me a little further. It left 6 inches or so of snow on the driveway so a quick second pass took care of that.

    3 hours saddle time whoohoo! Insulated Walls coveralls and a helmet liner is my usual over just a vest and sweatshirt with the basics underneath. Honestly cant remember wearing much else but I added a hoodie today because of the wind. Along with my own 300 ft driveway I clean the snow for the town school so its mile down and back. And at 12 degrees with the wind gusting like it was today it does gets a tad cold on the old face when I'm headed down the big highway wide open throttle...9 mph

    The new MIE plow on my Mahindra 2516 is phenomenal! We got 28 inches of snow. There's no comparison between the bucket and a plow!

    With 28" you can just angle it and push it with the plow?

    Most of the time I push straight ahead, and when I used the angle it was to open up the road on either side of my driveway. It worked very well!

    I guess without a cab 9 mph probably feels a lot faster

    Even with cabs my 4720 (16 mph) and my 5105M (21 mph) are a handful at those rocket speeds.
