    2017 John Deere x739 Snow Plow Video

    Howdy,

    I'm still getting used to this video recording thing on YouTube. Hopefully my presentation & video editing skills continue to improve, so take it easy on me! I mean, they can only go up from here!



    Anyways, figure eventually this video might be of limited use to someone. So here it is, a bit of a walkaround and overview of my garden tractor setup for winter. This is my personal tractor that I use at home.

    One thing I learned on your video that I didn't know about was the float position going down on the blade. This is my second winter for my 2016 x738. I will have to try it out next time I'm using my blade to see if it works.
    I have the simular setup with the weights and blade extensions. I added a rubber wear strip, side markers and heavy hitch skid shoes to my blade.

    Yeah, but the tractor looks a lot better with the seat in the normal position for the video

    I actually flipped it up before I started recording and then flipped it back down, lol.

    Nice, yeah I still need to get a rubber wear bar for mine. I don't know if it showed up in the video, but my skid shoes are raised all the way up so that the blade stays on the concrete.

    Hope the float position works for you!

    They'll get touched up after plow season is over. It's been driving me crazy

    These machines can push a lot of snow. Here is an old video I took with my cell phone many years ago. Probably 6-8" on the ground using my X585. The X585 is closer to the X7xx machines than the current X5xx. They did a model renumbering a while back. While I have a blower, last week when we had a foot of snow is the first time I used it in about 4 years. I would rather go out and plow. Over the years I have plowed with an old 317 and ATVs but these machines are much nicer for moving snow. I am running 6 weights on my 3pt/Heavy hitch combo in the winter. My rear tires are also filled with winter washer fluid. I need that much weight for my FEL.

    Handled that snow with ease! I could plow snow all day long, haha.

    I got a flexible mount to use on my tractors and try to take video from a different perspective. Here's my first crack at that. Didn't have much snow, but it's incredible how icy my driveway gets. So, put the plow to work and scraped it pretty clean. The sun did the rest and I have a dry driveway now this afternoon.
