    Here is my snow removal setup. The Boss blade is new (replaced a JD Powertach blade). I got to try it out today and it's a beast! The gator has no trouble pushing it around.

    -2008 Gator XUV 850D
    -Toro 1128
    -Toro 210R
    -Snow plow shovels (best I've tried!)

    Enjoy:D

    I drive it from site to site. I do all residential at this time.

    You can see in one of my pics what I will use in the back. In the test plowing you can see I had nothing back there and I plowed in 2WD.

    I take it on the road and do residentials around the city with it. I avoid roads over 40 MPH and I have a caution light and slow moving vehicle emblem.

    Thanks guys. It goes around 30 MPH. I just got the heater and cab for it. I used to haul it on the trailer. Driving it is much faster and I will continue to do it until someone stops me. And then I'll probably try again;)

    I have a propane heater.

    That is an awsome set up. I like how you have all your suplies in the back. What do you plow with it? (driveways, lots, ect.)

    I do small to medium driveways with it.

    It doesn't have lights Bubba. It may be a problem too because of the way the XT slopes over the lights.

    Very nice set up. I saw one of these with the BOSS lights on the plow being hauled on a trailer in town.
