    finally had time and SNOW to get pics. 4 inches laying this morning...WET 4 inches!This is the perfect sized vehicle for this job. Small wheelbase for quick turnarounds. Lots of torque. I had to weld on my own class 3 hitch on the front. Easy job. The salter is a Moultrie Feeder/works great. I cut it down to 2/3 the original height. I never put in more than 2 bags of salt, plus I had to build a sheetmetal funnel in it to drain ALL the salt out. Happy Plowing,boys!AL

    Looks great !! I always wondered how those work. Looks like its getting down to pavement nice and clean, being wet snow probably helps that. Just goes to show the old saying "the right tool for the right job" . You know your setup and are using it properly. I know what you mean about the wheel base, I have a 96 2dr s10 blazer and it is much more maneuverable than my 79 F350. The only time I miss the F350 is when the piles are big and I need to move them back, thats pretty much its only use now. I just do residential driveways and one small lot.

    Talk about low overhead! You're probably raking in the dough with a rig like that???

    Right on, really seems to push the snow good. Nice machine for tight areas.

    Rcgm, yes, ya gotta lower it by hand. Not a big deal. I recently sold this tracker and bought a Ranger w/7' bed. I feel it will push even better, but its like turning a bus around. Not used to the long wheel-base. I miss the 32 MPG I got with the Tracker. This ranger,being an automatic, gets 13.5MPG
    Oh, no angle. I wish i had bought the angle head, but its about 250 dollars. Money is TIGHT this year. Economy sucks, so i will stick with the straight push.

    tracker with snow plow

    what i was going to do is get a rear bumper hitch and weld to a piece of quarter inch flat steel and bolt it to the flat cross member under ther front end

    Its gotta be real strong. The plow mount is heavy, and it sticks out about 18 inches. So the leverage effect, well, you get what i am trying to say. Weld it solid ti the frame, or suspension components. I think the flat crossmember you speak of is just a heavy sheet-metal. NOT SURE, I HAVE RECENTLY SOLD MINE.
