The plow is constructed of .090 inch steel and can be angled in 6 positions. Unlike some of the other 1-box ATV snowplow solutions, the plow is solid construction. The plow’s cut edge bar is also reversible, giving the owner double life on this wear item. The mount features a quick release, so you can leave it on, and attach or remove the plow as needed. All components are powder coated for rust prevention and the system has a 1 year warranty. You will need a winch to run this system however – and its not included in the box package. Look for model UNIPLW50.

Snow Blower and Snow Plow Attachment for Lawn Tractors

If you already own a good lawn tractor and are looking to get another season’s use out of it, adding a snow blower attachment or snow plow attachment to your garden tractor can extend the use it sees, and also be a good way to have a large collection of equipment that stores away easily when not in use.

The snow plow attachment for a lawn tractor is the most common, with offerings for popular manufacturers such as John Deere, Cub Cadet, Toro and the Sears – Craftsman brands. You may also find universal lawn tractor snow plow kits that are designed to fit on lawn mowers from a variety of makes. The plow is typically good for those owners who have small areas to plow, and do not have large amounts of snow accumulation. Many aftermarket accessories can increase the performance of these snow removal solutions, but at the end of the day, a lawn tractor most likely does not have 4 wheel drive and an oversized engine. Another option for these heavy snowfall situations may be to look at ATV snow plows, as they have the superior performance specs that match up well with pushing snow.

lawn tractor snow plowSnow blower attachments for lawn tractors are not as widely available. They do have the larger capacity for moving snow around, and the ones that are available generally tend to be very competent. The market offers variations such as belt driven and shaft driven augers and impellers, using the garden tractor for locomotion, steering and power. John Deere is one manufacturer that offers a great snow blower attachment, even for the tiny- sized mower option. One thing for sure, removing snow with a riding snow blower is easier then the one you walk behind.

Both the snow plow and snow blower attachments for lawn tractors are good choices, provided the equipment matches the task at hand – some snowfalls are so light that taking out the tractor seems like overkill. Other snow storms are so heavy that they overwhelm the tractor’s ability to maintain traction. If you are looking to add a plow or snow thrower to your tractor, make sure it works with your model and is sized appropriately.
