    Who has used a Zero Turn with a front plow for sidewalks, were thinking about using one next year if we get some of the contracts were bidding on? Do they really work well?

    have had plows mounted on hustlers ztr's for years. They have limitations on how much they can push. Anything over a foot and you have to work at it. When you install chains for extra traction, operators have to take caution or you chew up some sidewalks.

    There was another thread here this winter on the subject. It got me thinking. I've got a Kubota and the mower is run by power takeoff. Why couldn't that be used to run a snowblower? They don't make one for it and I haven't come across anyone else that does.
