    I bought a Cub Cadet Zero Turn mower this year. It has a snow plow option. Has anybody on here plowed with one of these. I have about 10 small residential driveways that I am doing. What do you think the results would be with putting a plow on the front a zero turn mower. Any help would be great. Thanks. Rob

    Don't do it. If you have ever got you z turn stuck while mowing, you could guess how good it will do pushing snow, while being on snow/ice covered pavement. Mid mount ztrs are only good for one thing and thats mowing grass, anything else is mediocre at best. Not too mention frigid temps, snow, salt will eat at your tank pretty fast.

    With chains they aren't that bad. They aren't great either. Good for less than 4" of snow.

    Seems like a pretty good way to wreck a $5000 lawn mower real quick.

    Buy a decent 2 stage snowblower or a cheap 4x4 atv.
