    Find Neige, or JD Dave......they're probably the best source for tractor advice.

    In my very limited expierience you would do well with a degelman,horst or some such power plow. Or even a pusher. Again this is expirerince I've gained reading not doing. Tractors tend to run out of weight before power, thus matching pusher to HP is tough since a tractor is so light compared to a loader of equal HP, or even one of 1/2 or 2/3 the HP of a tractor.

    As Forestfire Guy has explained so well its a matter of sizing the implement to the tractor.

    Too wide a plow for a smaller tractor will eventually cause traction loss with heavy accumulations as the pile will wiegh more than the plow and tractor and you will need to lift and push and go back to push again to move it all.

    Having chains and liquid tire ballast are always a plus for a tractor and snow plow.


    Herein are a few places to look at for further reading;

    The pronovost Ltd. company of quebec has built snow blowers for tractors for many years and build them very well also.
