Snow Plows For Small Vehicles – The Garden Tractor
Many people have purchased a small garden tractor to help them take care of several summer jobs. Sometimes called “compact” tractors, they are frequently locked up by the time winter comes around. This is a shame as garden tractors can take on another role when the snow begins to fall. They can become miniature snow plows.
Snow Plows and Garden Tractors
Compact tractors are made by various companies. Common types include:
While it is possible to purchase plow accessories from the original manufacturer of your compact tractor, this is not always possible. Sometimes, too, adding a plow is an afterthought. It may also be a case of affordability at the time you purchased the tractor or even later. However, several companies do produce snow plows and snow plow kits. This makes it easier to find one that is compatible with your type of tractor while not harming the budget.

Turning Your Garden Tractor into a Snow Removal Machine
Compact tractors can be more than summer tools. In winter, with the right accessories, they can clear your sidewalk, walkways, and driveways quickly and efficiently. They can do the same for neighbors. In fact, some commercial snow removal agencies, including those available through such third-party services as Edenapp, use them. However, always be sure the match between garden tractor and snow plow, snow pusher, or snow blower is the right one. Failure to consider compatibility easily can lead to serious consequences.
