    These are some pictures of our John Deere 9400 pushing snow last year with our 16 ft 6 way dozer blade. It has 850 Trelleborg tires and weighs about 42,000 lbs. It used to have 425 hp but we chipped it up 525 hp.

    How about next time you get out of you jammies and slippers so you can take some better pictures. those far off's standing on the front porch don't do us much good.

    Um ya it wouldn't do much good to leave the porch as my dad had to clear the road 6 miles to get to my house as the county didn't even have the road open and my wife took the pictures. We pull the road maintainers out of the ditch at least once a year.

    My little pickup truck couldn't even get out of the shed.

    Looks like an awesome spread of land there. The Deere ain't 1/2 bad either!

    Ya, its so fun clearing the gravel road. It feels like a tank.

    I've got over a mile of a gravel driveway. I hate it, but would rather play with gravel than pay to pave it.

    Ya one time before we built huge skid shoes, the blade caught a huge rock and the blade went under the tractor and popped both hydraulic cylinders out of the canisters. We thought we broke the tractor in half as the front tires came off the ground.

    Looks good, the 9400 wouldn't hardly notice the 16ft with snow in front of it.

    Ya, it does pretty good. Sometime you have to stack it in the ditch as when it gets as high as the hood there's just nowhere for it to go.

    The fact that you chipped it makes me love it even more. wesport
