    Does anyone plow or snowblow with their craftsman lawn tractor? I have my gf and my grandmothers driveway to clear and they're way to small for my chevy to drive down and then back drag. I was thinking i could just throw a used plow or blower on the mower and use that. What do you guys think?

    I don't see why not. I see hundreds of homeowners using their lawn tractors to clear snow whenever I'm out plowing so I think it's a proven method for minimal snow removal.

    If you plow with the storm you should be ok. I had an old crapsman 6 speed with tire chains and it couldn't push much

    i have a 1989 crapsman gt6000 with a 48" blade, tire chains, and wheel weights it does pretty good, i use it to plow my driveway instead of my truck because my driveway is a mountain and the garage is at the bottom and i rather hit the garage with the lawn mower than my truck. the key to lawn mower plowing is chains and wheel weights without that they're worthless

    Don't get me wrong, I really like craftsman hand tools, rakes shovels etc. I just don't like there tractors and I am not a big fan of their power toold either

    hey deer615

    hi deer615, I see you have a 360 with a 48" Cycle Country. I have a 350 wolverine and will be buying a 48 cycle country this week. Do you have a manual ift or electric? I'm leaning towards an electric lift.

    I brought it with the manual lift, used it and found it to annoying. So I brought a winch, deffinetly worth it in my opinion!

    i've got a craftsman rider with a 44" blower on it... throw's snow like a champ, but i got atv tires on it and about 100lbs of ballast mounted on the back of it... the only problem with riders is traction
