    Hi everyone, I recently bought a tractor to do some light logging with but I also have a couple of driveways to plow with it also.
    I've done plenty of logging with tractors but very little plowing.
    It's a 55 HP 4WD with a FEL (no cab).
    Are there any tips or suggestions you can give me for plowing snow with it ( without suggesting I buy something else to attach to it) ?
    I did a search but didn't find much.

    Welcome Mark. Where you located? Your question is confusing. Do you have something on the tractor now to plow with? Please give more details.

    Hey Bolts I'm in the Enfield area.
    It's got a loader on front.
    I figured someone would suggest buying a blower for the back or something.
    Just need some tips on how to plow snow with the loader bucket.

    Like all of us, just get out there and do it. You will get the hang of it quickly. A loader is not a plow but for a few drives and if you are not in a hurry then the loader will be fine. Drop down sometime and see our Blizzard and SnowMan lines. That is after you get the bug, and you will.

    When I had my tractor I used a rear 3 pt mounted 7' blade. The combo of it and the FEL were unbeatable. Rear blades are fairly inexpensive.
