I went up and finished the plowing today. I tried fourth gear today and it went much better. The extra speed helped it curl and roll. Not sure I have enough power to run in 4th with a heavier load, but I was only plowing around 3 or so inches today.
The driveway only took a couple hours. The plow took a beating, but it held up.
As I normally do, I cleared up to the power pole.
At no point did I not have enough power, not even pushing the banks into the ditches. I did go too far a couple of times and the front end started to sink, but didn't get stuck, at least not down here.
I tried to clear the parking spot, but it was too rough. I will have to finish it with the snowblower.
It is a good thing I don't have a sharp edge on the blade. I got a little too close to the edge and found the extension cord.
I kinda expected it wouldn't do it, but I tried anyways, and no the tractor won't go up to the shed.
When I was going down to the creek, I got stuck. This might have something to do with why.
I think those chains came off because they were put on with the wimpier zip ties from work. I will put them back on with the beefy ones. All in all, the plowing today was quite a bit faster, I got everything done including getting unstuck in a couple of hours. Even with Tim's big snowblower I couldn't match that, so it is quicker. I definitely think I will switch to a 4-wheeler next year though, the traction is that much better with a 4x4, and a few times today I was spinning a lot.
