I was definitely feeling the cold yesterday. -3 and a good brisk wind. The only part that really got cold was around my face. I think my next one may have a cab.. or just wear an old time diving helmet...Far as I'm concerned, nothing beats a cab tractor with heat in the winter and ac in the summer.. Never go back to an open station tractor again.
With my last open station Kubota years ago, I wore a snowmobile suit and a wool face mask. Wasn't pleasant even then. Had a Woods blower and no matter which way I went, was always covered in snow dust.I was definitely feeling the cold yesterday. -3 and a good brisk wind.

Good idea but I don't have any....lol Think I'm going down to Toledo Conveyor Belting and see what they have used. I priced them on Flea-Bay and the cost is stupid as well shipping. You say I need 10" wide, how thick?Flip, take a piece of old baler belting and some 1/4" x 1 1/2" strap and attach it to the top of your blade. 10" belting is best, not anything narrower. Will work excellent!
Well we had a "real" ice storm in early 2018 with downed power lines and everything so I guess snow is not totally out of the question but probably not to plowable levels and certainly pretty rare. When I first found OTT I read every "plowing" post until I realized most were talking about snow not dirt. I try to put a dirt plowing comment in when I can to remind folks what tractors are really designed to doI realize it's 'global warming' but if you have snow in Florida I'd really be amazed.
