    Ready for the snow...

    We're supposed to be getting 2-4" of snow tonight and tomorrow in Virginia. What I've learned over the years is that really means a dusting to 8+ inches.

    So today I put the Edge tamers on for the first time on the 61" bucket. This literally took less than a couple of minutes. I might have to go try them out on some leaves, . Better picture of Kenny's Bolt on Hooks also.

    How much snow do the plow tamers leave under the bucket when you are using them for snow removal? If you do get enough snow to use them, would you kindly post a picture or three of what it looks like when using them for snow removal and the surface after clearing snow, etc.?

    Our snow forecast was originally for our snow to start TODAY and then increase tonight and by Saturday night, we were supposed to have 4" to 10" of snow from Lake Effect. Well, yesterday morning, I awoke to 2" to 3" of snow and the snow wasn't even supposed to begin until TODAY. I had been using my tractor for other projects and was delaying putting the plow on and still had the FEL on, so I had to scramble and drop the FEL and mount up the Quick Attach and front blade......which only takes maybe 10 minutes. But still........

    It made me think of the Edge tamers as a "back up" plan in case I needed to use the loader for snow removal in a hurry or if I have an equipment issue with the plow. My bucket has the Piranha edge on it, which I wonder if the Edge tamers will work with that bucket edge on it? Perhaps someone will have experience with that issue.

    Thank you very much!

    That is my plan as well. I use my Edge Tamers with the Edge Extender during the summer months for carrying long things and debris removal. But even though I have a front snow blower there are times when we get some snow prior to me preparing the tractor for winter or a freak late snow after I've removed the blower and remounted the loader. In these cases I would simply throw the Edge Tamers on and be good to go. Likewise if the blower ever decided to blow up in the middle of winter.

    I've used them for the final cleanup of a load of stones which I had delivered in the driveway. They allowed me to scoop up the remains without digging into the existing gravel.

    I've never measured the height of them but I suspect they will leave an inch or so of snow.

    I'll definitely post some pictures. I'm so excited not to have to get the wife to use the snow blower as I can't walk.

    I know another member had hand controls installed on their 1 series tractor, can't find the thread..... It was all custom of course. Is that something you've looked into?

    They leave no where near an inch of snow.

    I can run the pedals. I can walk about 50' at a time with assistance. With my illness it's progressive, so I'll probably need hand controls one day.
