Will be installing the snow blower on the X590 in the near future .I would like to store it in this shed because its a dry and mouse proof shed. I have a machinery pole barn but has a gravel floor and not real dry and has mice running around. But now I am wondering if getting the tractor with blower up the ramp and in the shed. It is a 12 x 16 raised floor shed. When I look at pictures and videos of the tractor with blower combination it appears it does not lift very high? I plan to back it in will have 2 or maybe for suit case weights to counter balance it. But wonder if the blower will scrape drag before the front wheels get high enough. The ramp is just slightly sloped forward from door to the last 3 deck boards that are the upward ramp section. I realize can be slippery in winter plan to add some sort of gritty peel and stick product. Could also put machine in the pole barn shed during the bad weather times. Just would hate having it in there all winter.

I've struggled getting mine onto a utility trailer due to the low lift height of the blower - When you back up, if the blower begins to scrape, there is some play above the max hydraulic lift point. When I back onto the trailer, once the blower begins to scrape, it will move up past the max lift height (the ground pushing the blower further up as I back up) - this allows me to get up onto the trailer without getting hung up

Not ideal, but has worked OK. Your situation looks less steep than mine, so you might just clear it. Keep us posted
Wow sounds like I might be OK then if you can make it up a utility ramp. I should have no trouble. Have been thinking I could probably lay a board down in front of the bottom of ramp just to get front tires up just a little higher to clear it also.

I think I have the problem solved I have a set of ramps that I use about 3 feet long that I add to my utility trailer ramp to keep the mower deck from dragging on lawn and garden tractors while loading the trailer that has a short ramp so the deck will not drag. They are about 3 feet long 2x8s with a set of aluminum ramp ends bolted to them. That are sold as a kit to make ramps for loading into the back of a pickup truck. I placed them out toward the end of the shed ramp and appear they will work perfectly. Will be switching the X590 over to the snow blower around Thanksgiving time so will find out.
