    My X585 at work

    We've had a few feet of snow in the past couple of weeks, and I don't think it will stop for the next while. Blading was a challenge, so it was time to hook up the 'blower. As always, it works exceptionally well

    4WD must make a world of difference. On my '0l 2WD 318 I need chains and weights to use the blower since it is so front heavy.

    Great pix! tnx.

    Yup, no chains. On flat land it's a beast, easily moving thru snow that is 6-12 inces above the intake. Going up and down an 10 degree incline is easy....backing out if it's a bit icy can be tricky Small inclines are fine. With the blade instead of the blower on, I can go almost anywhere a quad/blade combo can. If there's too much snow, over 12 inches, 2 minutes to drop the blade, hook up the blade, and I'm better off than a quad/blade.

    Nice rig!
    I started my first year with 4wd this year without
    chains, but soon took them off my old 445 and
    put them on because going up hill into harder packed
    snow/ice I had a tendency to spin a little bit.
    I also loaded the rear tires, and have the soft
    side cab, so the weight is there. Now with the
    chains, it's an animal, can go just about anywhere
    i want, on or off the driveway!

    here are some of my pics from last month:http://s15.photobucket.com/albums/a3...now%20jan2011/

    Great pix Dutch!

    My little 318 2WD needs chain and weights, and no cab. Only good feature is it's paid for.

    I like your setup! I love it when functional and fun go together!

    Thanks Ken, Pete,

    I can notice the difference in power with this new setup,
    the snowblower is even more affective, and what a year
    for it this year, over 120 inches (at nearest airport!) and
    counting!
