    Nice rig man. All you need now is a blower on the back.

    I used mainly at my own property.....mow about 20 acres with it in summer and plow my roads about 2500' of pavement. Also drive it to a commercial site I own to support my loader on big storms

    Blower is in the barn 96" unit with hydro-chute....don't use it much but when needed it works reals well

    What tires do you have on that, what size are they. They look like they would be really easy on turf in the summer and great for winter.
