I use a rear blade and front blower and I go through something similar because I'm storing the tractor in a shed with a wooden floor, plus I have tire chains. So I have to deal with the water from the melting snow and avoid damage to the floor from the tire chains.

I like that Hanjet mat. Is it completely water proof? Does that one unroll/unfold and lay flat even when cold?

I had previously tried a very thick 8x20 9-mil garage rubber mat. It worked great but it weighs over 100 lbs and is very difficult to get it to lay flat after being rolled up for the summer. I currently have a bunch of water proof mats laying on top of a piece of plastic.

Oh the joys of winter storage rituals. :)

So the mat came from Amazon. It was folded up and after had a little memory to it. Couple days it layed out flatter. Waterproof yes, and it has raised edges around perimeter to keep water in. And my shop it heated so can’t comment on cold.

No drain in the floor, or just trying to save the concrete?
Nope didn’t want the drain. Shop was built as a work shop and didn’t want to deal with trying to level tools on a sloped floor. And I’ll always be trying to save the concrete!!! It costs me about $6000 7 years ago. I’m sure it’s cheaper these days😂🤣😂

Like that idea I hate the slop and water that comes in the shed after using the X758 for snow. Even though I try to clean off the snow before bring it back in the shed but with no floor drain water sits. Need to find a mate 5’x10’.
This one is 7’5”x16’ I originally thought it was going to be to long but it just about perfect!

I was interested in one of these mats until I read in the description that it was very flammable.

The snow off of mine melts and the hanging furnace dries it up. I use the M18 blower to blow it off and also blow the excess salt off the salt spreader mounts.
