I've been plowing with a Deere #322 Garden Tractor for years and just moved up to a Deere #455 diesel. Here in Northeast Kansas we've yet to have our first snow. I've yet to put the #455 to the test and wonder if anyone has used a Deere #455 or a diesel model. Please respond pro and con. I specailize in driveways and sidewalks and have had good luck with the Deere large garden tractors. I'm curious how many of you pros use the garden tractors for any phases of your snow removal business? My garden tractor is used year- round, mowing, tilling and snow removal. Thanks, Ken.
