Hey guys, I've been plowing snow this winter with my JD 345 and 48" snow blade on the front of it. It does well in the snow, in order to transport it, I have to get it up on the trailer. Now the blade doesn't come but around 2" or a little more off the ground in the first place, and I put a rubber gaurd for the bottom of the blade so it doesn't damage blacktop surfaces badly. Anyway, the trailer gate is obviously at an incline, and this makes loading difficult. I have to first lube the blade and gate with a little snow and then practically ram the blade up the gate at full speed on the tractor to get up the incline. (the front wheels have to come off the ground at one point while rear wheels try to push rest of tractor up the gate) This is possible for me after a few tries, but I hate having to do it because I know this is hard on my machine. I've tried backin it on the trailer which would be easier if there wasn't ice on the trailer floor boards which usually at some point make the back wheels start to spin and the tractor cannout make the full incline. I do take a cement block and raise the trailer with the jack while it is hooked to the truck to a better suited incline for the 345, but it's still hard on equipment and I need a better way of loading if I ever get many snow removal jobs in the future. Any suggestions? Thanx!
