Getting sick of high snowbanks from plowing my 600' driveway and aprons, so next year I'll be doing the work with a 3046R w/cab


In addition to the 59" front mount blower, I plan to order a salt spreader and loader/material bucket.


I'm new to the tractor game, so any advice is appreciated.

Since your getting a cab anyway you might want to consider a 3 point snowblower. It's only my opinion but they perform much better than the 59" Deere blower and cost 1/3 to 1/2 the cost. Only negatives are looking backwards and blowing snow dust (cab eliminates this). Most guys on here are'nt happy with how far there 59" throws the snow. I don't have a cab and still prefer the 3-point. Opinion Only Guy's!

Nice to keep the loader on the front too.

Welcome

Now you are making me wish for a cab. Snowblower in front is best for an old stiff neck like mine. I have and use both front and rear.
