From what I’ve heard, Deere uses a different pitch/angle on their belts so generally non Deere belts will fail somewhat rapidly due to that.What belts do you guys suggest ? I need to replace my drive belts in the 210. I have heard the variator doesn't work right with non deere belts. Is this true ?
A thrower would be faster, but if you get the weights and chains and new belts, and learn a little technique, you will be amazed what "the old gals" can do. I have pushed that much snow with mine. I have pushed snow that deep that had a layer of sleet in the middle of the snow.And even if we could get out I think we had to much snow for the old gals.(16+in) And I had no chains or weights and his drive belts weren’t having it.
I could only get about 2 feet out the bay door one time with my 1650 Cub Cadet and blower. Had to back it out and there was some ice under about 10" of snow. Finally got it turned around in the shop using a jack and colorful language but it would still only go a feet out the door. So I went and got our Ford County 4 with the 10 ft dozer blade on the front and that did the trick.I have a 37a. I just do not want it to throw gravel.
No. We were stupid and put the tractor in backwards so we couldn’t plow ourselves out.
You can set the feet/runners so the thrower leaves an inch or so of snow on the ground. You can clear that inch or so with the front blade if necessary. My driveway is almost always soft, uneven, and wet the first time it snows here. I drag the gravel I push to the edge of the driveway back after the snow melts.I have a 37a.
