Playing and plowing with the tractor

After our first big snow of the year we got to try the tractor on our 100 yard driveway. The primary use for the tractor will be cultivating our market garden, but plowing was definitely a factor in its purchase. I still go back and forth on whether we should have bought a larger more powerful tractor or the more compact one that we went with. We do need some maneuverability that we wouldn't have had with a larger tractor. And this one should meet our needs well. Maybe it's a guy thing. Larger and more powerful, how can you go wrong. Either way, it plowed the driveway just fine, and it worked pulling the cultivator earlier this fall.

We are supposed to get another big snow system over the next couple of days. I'd like to go deer hunting tomorrow in the snow, but the roads may be to dangerous to drive into the foothills.
