Most lawn tractor manufacturers have snow plow, or snow blower, attachments available. There are universal plow/blower attachments to be purchased as well, many for the price of a lower-priced walk-behind snow blower. It`s not that hard, actually, to convert your lawn tractor into a snow removal machine.
There are two general methods of plowing sod — shallow, breaking two to four inches in depth, and deep, breaking five to six inches in depth. The first method is used when it is desired to kill the turf and then “back-set” before seeding.
Typically, a plow is attached to a truck with brackets or a two-inch hitch receiver. There are also rear-mount plows available that connect via the same hitch receiver many truckers have installed for trailers.

I put my snow blade on successfully, but the tractor does not start now! What to do?
ANSWER : Did it start before you installed snow blade? Did you remove mower deck? If you removed mower deck you probably had to unplug blade safety switch. This is a plug in deal, look underneath and see if it is hanging, there is probably a place on the snow attachment to plug into,or you can jump around it by plugging a wire into each hole. (please note I am assuming it ran good before you installed the snow attachment).Hope this helps.

ANSWER : If there is an adjusting screw on the carb turn it out a little bit at a time and see if that works before you do anything else. If that don’t work put the screw back where you started.
If that doesn’t work take the plug out and install a new one and while the plug is out put a table spoon of gas in the spark plug hole and reinstall the plug and put the plug wire back on. If the engine starts but stalls after the little bit of gas is used up. Take the bowl off the carb and clean it out as well as clean the fuel jet that is in the bolt that holds the bowl on. Put back together and see if that works. It is quite often dirty gas that is the problem. Especially if its been sitting. Oh yes put fresh gas in it as well.
