    Hey Welch
    Where in wisconsin r u from?? Im 45min north of milwaukee in the town of richfield. I've seen a Scag with a Snow blower attached to the front of it at the dealership, they put a long drive shaft on that thing. My guess is u could use your ZTR for snow removal, but maybe the better option would be to get a blade for the JD 445, which is more built for pushing and the blade itself. Maybe look to see if u can put a snow blower on your Great Dane Jr? I wont be using my ZTR this winter, just using an old walkbehind Toro Snow thrower and a JD F710 with a 46inch snow blower to do side walks with.
    Just my imput
