tried & true- just used it yesterday in Missoula Mt- installed a 14" high craftsman snow plow , sears # 07124441000, model # 24441. put on some 'Husqvarna 954050501 Tractor Wheel Weights, Pair 62-Pound ' ( this tractor is a Husky...) i bought the weights from amazon. installed these (also bought from amazon)" Tire Chains 20X8X8 20X8X10 Snow Throwers / Mowers 2 Link".
i see its been a while since you asked this....so hopefully youre all set by now. if not- well now you have the info. i had a heck of a time figuring out what it would take to make this animal work- since the home depot ad for the 'Ariens 46 in. 22 HP Briggs and Stratton Hydrostatic Front-Engine Riding Mower ' clearly states: "Riding Mower Usage Heavy Hauling & Lawn Maintenance,Mowing,Snow Removal " but after you buy it- the Q and A's & ariens sez- cant be done... Really?? i spent 2 hrs just last nite plowing out my place and a whole cul de sac, for one- its a HOOT and for 2: this setup ROCKS! so if youve already set it up- well then youre havin as much fun as i am, if not- dont hesitate- or itll be summer !
