If not, how does one access the nuts behind the red panel to complete the installation? Lastly how is the traction when snowblowing? I know what the traction is like on a slippery surface with my Toro Grandstand (twin hydraulic motors, 20x10-8 turf tires), the wheels spin very easily (spring conditions, soft (rain-soaked) lawn with the slightest gravitational disadvantage) I would not attempt to use a snow blade to push snow (that seems to be asking too much)...since the snowblower does the work, is there enough traction to get the auger to the snow constantly ? Thank you for your time.
It's belt drive from the blade pto. The blower mounts to a hitch, so you mount the hitch first.I
would either use chains or change the tires to snow hog tires.
