Don’t use a snowblower too big for your tractor
You’re not going to save any time trying to put an extra 12″ on your snowblower width, unless you never use it in deep snow. Get a snowblower that covers your tractor’s track (width to the outside of the tires) and of a duty grade appropriate for your horsepower (check with your dealer or owner’s manual for the manufacturer recommended snowblower size for your tractor).
Well, that’s it for now. If you have any good tips to add to this list, please post in the comments below or on the original thread here: http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/snow-removal/233681-snowblowing-rules-thumb.html
