Here in Northwest Arkansas, we get snow almost every winter, but usually fairly light (2-4 inches) and only a few times per year - and we've had no snow of consequence this winter. Just moved back to the midwest with my darling, who is from southern California. Talked to her about a snow blade when we bought the tractor - but the weatherman wasn't helping - and it seemed an unnecessary expense for now. My question is, am I ok to take care of the snow I have with a FEL and a box blade scraper on my rather steep and winding gravel drive?
Are there any modifications I should look into for the FEL to make it an effective snow pusher? I wouldn't want to do anything permanent, as I'm doing tilling, earth moving, and ground clearing with the loader during most of the year.
Thanks in advance to all the experienced snow-pushers out there for your help.... and my sympathies to those of you in New England!
