Snow blade
I normally do not write reviews, this is my first actually, but I have found so many helpful reviews out there, I thought I would return the favor. I recently purchased this tractor blade [14" high # 07124441000], the associated 30 pound wheel weights and snow chains on Dec 28th, 2010 for my lawn tractor. I purchased this as we just moved into a house with a long, somewhat flat driveway, and thought this may be a good solution as we are in Spokane, WA and have been getting a lot of Snow! First things first, Sears did a great job with the order and getting the above items delivered to my local store much faster than initially quoted....I was impressed with this as well as the prompt email notifications....Way to go Sears! Second, when I went to the pick-up area of the store, I pulled right-in, scanned my receipt at their pick-up Kiosk, which starts a timer and waited no more than five minutes for my items to arrive and be loaded in my truck... Way to go Sears! So I get home and am excited to put this baby together and start plowing.... I open the box and ohhhh, there is a LOT of parts and bolts, and 4 hours later..... To that end, I am a fairly mechanical person and have almost every tool known to man and was just a bit surprised how long this took. In other words, if you are not mechanically inclinced and to avoid frustration and crawling around your garage floor for almost 4 hours, I would highly recommend you have someone install this for you. My arms/knuckles were literally scratched up from all the weird angles and small spaces to maneuver through the installation process. So the blade is on. The only issue I had was over tightening the handle to screw to the cable. I over tightened and the screw head broke off, causing me to drill through the screw plate and put in a replacement bolt. Tools needed: Metal drill bit and screw gun. After this mishap, I was finally done. The quality of the materials was heavy, which I equate to long lasting. The only parts I did not fell that way about were the extension arm to pivot and lower/raise the blade. Felt cheap and easily bendable..... 1 down two to go.... Next was the installation of the wheel weights. This is where the install stopped as you have these long roughly 10" bolts that go through your tire/wheel weight and you have to tighten them from the inside of the wheel, under the rear axle. This was a complete nightmare as most wrenches will not fit in that space and had to go out and buy a deep socket to tighten them down. Even with that deep socket, I still could not get them on tight....This was bad Sears! Finally were the chains, very ease and straight forward. Now for the test! Man vs. Snow on Lawn mower and Snow Wins...? Simply put, my big 23 HP Husqvarna , with 30 lb wheel weights and chains [All of the recommended items] was simply not enough weight/traction to avoid getting stuck in the snow. Very VERY disappointing after investing so much time in the install process. From another review, someone wrote they left their bagger on and put additional weights in the grass bagger for more traction, so I decided to gave that a try. I have the Sears 3 bagger so I put 25 pounds in each pouch. I noticed immediately much improved traction however I just could not get going fast enough to move a lot of snow, could not plow on an upward incline, and very time consuming with the number of passes needed to clear my driveway. So does it work...Yes. Does it work well...No. To conclude, I gave the review 3 stars for the great order and deliver, for the heavy duty parts, for the easy to follow directions. I did not give 5 stars because of the time it took to assemble, the difficulty mounting the wheel weights, and the less than desirable outcome. I will be returning all 3 products Sears. Well, I hope someone out there finds this helpful when weighing out whether to purchase.

Worth it!

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

Makes snow removal a breeze

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

Decent Snow Blade

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!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

so far so good

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Snow Blade

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Never a complaint

I have one of these on a 19hp Polan tractor, and it's great, living in ND, I know a bit about snow, and this beats a shovel any day of the week, ours is 6 yrs old now, and still works like new, that's what grease was invented for. Only kink is the tractor, it likes to spin on ice, even with chains.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Worth the price

I've had this item for several years now and it works well. I use the plow when the snow is wet and heavy and I have a snow blower that I use when the snow is high and fluffy. The plow is easy to install for people that have basic skills for reading directions and who have.a general understanding of how tools work. I have wheel weights with chains that are needed for traction, especially if you need to plow on an incline. The plow comes on and off easy and is easy to store on the back floor of my shed in the off season. I leave the bracket on the front year round. Slight adjustments and some wd-40 help with keeping the plow easy to move (up, down, left and right) all while sitting in the chair. I have a two car garage and a driveway that is about 2 cars wide and 6 cars long. This plow handles that size just fine.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
