    Finally put the new tractor to "Work" (VIDEO)

    After having my new tractor for few weeks, we finally got a big snow. So I went out and played in the driveway for awhile. The ballast box makes a huge difference! I might need a plow.
    Enjoy the video

    Nice vid A suggestion...At 3:19 when the wheels spin, try using float and then angle the bucket down slightly so it cuts. Also step on the lockout peddle...That may work better than lowering the bucket down without the float which takes the weight off the wheels.

    Great camera work and editing

    Nice video, for me over the past 18 yrs having a fel , I've only used fel maybe twice to clear a driveway or parking lot. IMO front blade is so much quicker , easier and tractor is seems so much shorter using the frt blade instead of fel.

    Plus seems to take so much longer using the fel instead of frt blade. I've posted before SIL would always use the fel because it was so much better in his opinion. His dad and I always told him to use his front angle blade, after moving to his present property with a 1/2-3/4 mile driveway he found out what we were talking about.

    Enjoy your new toy.....tractor.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I was using the float almost the whole time, that area had some serious packed snow from previous snow. Also I used the diff lock peddle several times, helps out for sure.

    I agree 100% a plow would be much faster, I was just playing around with the tractor and fel because its new, I have a snowblower that does a pretty good job for my driveway, in the future I'll probably just use the FEL for moving big piles from the plow truck.

    I look at plows every year...but than I think It takes only 30 minutes to clear my drive with the loader...I can't lesson my seat time So I stick with the FEL

    That would be criminal.
