I recently purchased this item to use with my lawn tractor during the winter months. I removed the deck and installed the snaw blade. It seems sturdy and easy to use but it comes with many parts to put together which could be challenging for anyone not mechanically inclined. So far we have not had any sigfnificant snow this year in South Jersey, so I can not attest yet as it's effectiveness. I will post again once I get to use it. After all, the proof is in the pudding!
Well, I wanted to wait a bit and put this plow through two winter's of snow before reviewing it. Yeah, there are a lot of parts, but if you can turn a wrench and read directions you'll be fine. It took me a couple hours to assemble with no missing parts. I also ordered a set of chains which is a must have to plow effectively. I didn't get wheel weights because I weigh 230 and thought it would be overkill. I can honestly say I'm very happy with the performance of this plow. We had a lot of snow last year and my driveway is 24'x80' in size. I would also do both my neighbors too, which is quite a bit of snow removal. I replaced the blade shoes this year ($36+S&H) which I expected after two seasons of plowing blacktop and concrete driveways. I set them for about 1/8-1/4" of blade clearance. The blade goes on and off fairly easy and stores up-right taking up little room in the shed. Make sure you wax the blade and lube the cable and other moving parts periodically and you should get years of service out of this product.
I have a long driveway that took me over an hour to clear using a snow thrower. With this item I was able to complete the job in just 15 minutes.
I had a Craftsman lawn tractor and snow blade for 26 years before this one and both are still going strong, but I worry about not being able to get replacement parts if needed. This tractor came along at the right price and is only a couple years old. The blade is basically the same as the previous, but the controls are different on the new one. I liked using the deck lift to lift the snow blade on the old one. This one is not as easy and is more out of reach to lift the blade and move the blade from side to side. All in all it should be alright. I will try to modify it to make it more comfortable, of course, after the warranty is expired!
Every part of this plow comes in pieces and you have to be in the mind set to spend some time and effort to put it together. What makes it easier is organizing the nuts, washers and bolts by the letters the instructions give them. It's not too bad for an indoor project. Also one thing they don't promote is that you can attach this plow while still having the mower deck attached so you can be ready for the quick change over from picking up leaves then dropping the deck to plow. When going through the instructions it's best to both read each step as it comes and look at the picture. It's not always clear by the text itself.

Seems to be well build. Takes a lot of time to assemble and there are a lot of parts. It would be nicer if it were partially assembled. But for the low price and some time on your part, if you are mechanically inclined. It is an economical way to use your lawn tractor to move snow on a big driveway.
