    I am building a plow for my turf tracer and plan to do some residential drives in the winter. Anyone know where to find tire chains for size 16x7.50x8"? Anyone else plowing with a walkbehind? if so how does it work out? worth the time to even try this out?Thanks guys.

    Northern Hydraulics or Mills Fleet Farm for chains.

    I don't have any experience plowing with a walkbehind, but I think you should look into a snowblower attachment for it. That way you wouldn't run out of room to pile the snow. Because your going to have a hard time pushing snow back far enough or high enough with that type of setup. But a huge blower like that would be pretty much unstoppable. I'm not dissing your idea, just my opinion.

    i would pay the cash and get the blower setup. Ive done volunteer work for my moms school and that thing can move some snow. 4' cutting width by 2' high. One single pass on the side walk and your done!
