    My cousin and I built this to see how well it would work. It works awesome. I use it on all my driveways and on small commercial lots. So maneuverable and you can see everything. I will probably be adding another next season. The plow was free from a junked truck. It is a 7.5' Meyer plow with pro wings. Can do most plowing if short pushes in high 2wd. On smaller lots I can plow faster than in my truck with the 810. Next one will have a speedwing on it I think though. With the box scraper it pulls away and scrapes pretty good. We eliminated the chain lift and put on a ram for down pressure also.

    Farmtrac? Is that a new off brand? Never heard of it. Looks like a sweet setup though for driveways.

    Yes it does have heat. Just electric heaters, auxiliary heater on the way. It's 40hp. Farmtrac used to be Long Tractor and is the same as Montana Tractors.

    I was thinking the same setup for driveways, except with a front blower instead of blade.
