Ours gets used all winter for plowing. We wouldn't be able to move without it. 800' driveway and 1/4 mile of private road.

 Winter Tractor Usage

I would say that I probably put more hours on my personal machine in the winter than the summer.

I use it as a utility run-around all winter because of the heated cab, summer I use other things, ATV or golf cart usually.

The fleet gets about 1/3 to 1/2 the hours winter time compared to summer.

Best of luck.

I don't need to plow with mine. The township plowed my driveway and charged me $139 for the past two years. So there's no incentive to purchase a plow or snowblower. I do use it most of the winter for logging and such.

Depends on the snowfall. We got the new 4310 specifically for winter. Having an uphill driveway can be a big problem in winter. The side benefit is much faster mowing in Summer. The 4310 with 72 mid mower cuts 2-4 hours off my mowing time. I used to spend about 8 hours or more of my Saturday mowing.

I never use the tractor in the winter - might as well throw away the key for the winter

I have two rural driveways to plow and get almost as much use in the winter as summer.

 Winter Tractor Usage

I just brought my tractor this summer, plan to very soon purchase a rear blade. My driveway is 300 ft, in the past the snow just stayed on the drive until it melted. This cut down on visitors without 4 x 4. However, one never knows about snow in central Kentucky. We have winters with no snow and and we have winters with 16 - 18" in one snow storm.

I have a small woods and a fence row to clean this winter, the tractor will be used some doing those jobs.
