    Heh, I've been looking for a small (like 4-6 cu.ft.) shovel for mine, to turn it into a loader like a dingo when I need that,
    but there is that issue of those weak front casters and regardless of that I just haven't found one yet.

    That's not true, I did find one but there wasn't a model for my make of mower, and it also just didn't look like it would hold
    up to any real long term work, more like a homeowner's thing and even then I questioned it's durability and what have you,
    forgot the name of the company but it's out there thou the guy only makes them for a few specific mowers (and mostly tractors).

    They do make some for ATV 4-wheelers, snow plows like what you speak of, in most cases they are manual plows
    with a lever that you operate with one hand and it's a bit of work to push snow with an ATV (but also can be loads of fun),
    one would think they make it for a ZTR but I also think a Ztr unfortunately and quite simply lacks the traction required for this.

    Other than that, I'm not sure, it's just sad that these big 25hp hydro-power beasts of work ain't good for nothing but grass cutting,
    one would think some manufacturer out there would have figured a way to make one of these 10 thousand dollar machines into
    something a bit more versatile than just an over priced gas-guzzling grass cutter, but it appears thus far this is not the case.

    I saw one at the Louisvlle show last year but I don't remember who made it. It was made for a ZTR and the one they had as a demo was mounted on a Turf Tiger. I thought at first it was a Jayco unit but I really don't think so now. I'll see if I can find the lit. I got.
