Les - this topic has been discussed many times, and there is a lot of good information already on this board. Just do a site search for snow plowing, and you will have it all at your fingertips. I use my blade for snow, and it is a cheap and easy way to get the job done. I pull with the blade facing forward, others turn the blade around and push the snow driving in reverse. this is supposed to be harder on the 3 point apparatus becaus it applies loads in compression rather than in tension.PaulB

Pulling foward works as long as the snow isn't too deep. In deeper snow you need to push backward so you can get better traction and the snow doesn't pile up under the tractor. How deep depends on the size of the tractor. When pushing backward it helps to use the back side of the blade, so it doesn't tend to dig in. Skids or wheels also help. Small tractors are limited in how much you can side cast by angling the blade because the snow will push the tractor sideways. In a heavy snow I will typically open things up by pushing the snow back to the sides, then clean up pulling foward and side casting.BTW when pulling foward, the lower arms are in tension, but the top link is in compression. Pushing backward the lower arms are in compression and the top link is in tension.
