    awesome tractor. I bet that can move some piled up snow. I would think it would be tiring snowblowing backwards? Do you find yourself using the bucket more, or the snowblower?

    blower is great for doing residentials right up to the garage. It is a little tiring on the back though. The bucket I use on driveways I can push straight in. Also use it at a 3 acre parking lot I do.

    Acorn, Since it`s two-wheel drive how does it do on long pushes? Reason I ask is , I own a 4000 Ford (42hp) with a loader and have entertained thoughts of a pusher on the front. Its also two-wheeled drive. Do OK without chains? We have a big lot in town and if it gets ugly I can always put a heathouser on it.

    One other big thing, does it steer while pushing?
