Without a heavy tractor and wheel chains, this does not push the heavy snow. It seems well made, but requires a much heavier / powerful rider. Even when the wheels didn't slip, the rider just stopped after about 4 feet of pushing. I was afraid the transmission would blow, so I returned the blade.

I have had this through 4 storms and it works great. I've used it to clear over a foot of snow at a time. I hardly even use my snow blower since I got this blade. Took about 2 hours to put together but well worth the time.
I've got this on a 24hp craftsman lawn tractor with just chains. So far I got two storms here and it did good. The first time was a heavy slush and cleared the stuff. The storm we got today I pushed about 6-7 inches. You have to not load up on what you are pushing. Definitely have to find out what you can get away with. The whole design on raising the blade and turning could be better. To drop it you have to work at it sometimes. Instead of lubricating the linkage as they suggest I goop it up with waterproof grease. Big difference. I also gooped up the pivot point too. If you break the cable as many have done, a dog's lead like the kind you let your dog running on works great, heavy cable and a lot cheaper. Same basic size and has a plastic sheath. Putting it together?? Well if you can read and distinguish what tool is which it isn't hard. Will it replace my 10hp snow blower in the deep stuff, no to point but so far it held it's own. I got it for $200 on sale and so far with my busted ACL, torn rotor cuffs and assorted creaks it was well worth it.
I have only used it twice and I had to make adjustments both times to the pull cable that allows you to move it left or right. it is not very easy to lift or move for that matter. had I known how much of a pain it would be I would have gotten a different tractor.
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.
