I was really hoping to keep using my old Cub Cadet to plow snow, but that hinges on getting my engine overhauled. So far it's looking like that won't be happening anytime soon, and now we've already had the first snowstorm of the year. So I'm considering getting a plow for my new 590.
First of all, how heavy is the blade and whatever front attachment(s) that go with it? Secondly, how easy or hard is it to attach/detach? I'm truly spoiled with the old Cub, since that blade attaches in minutes. Finally, I really didn't want a blade as long as 48" since I run into a bit of storage problems with something that large. Another reason I didn't buy it with the tractor is that the dealer had nothing in stock to show me. Hate to spend the (close to) $800 for something I've not even seen.
Thanks for any suggestions...
