- Published on Jan 28, 2019
I try out a snow-thower attachment on my 1970s Electric Tractor!

Yesterday, I mounted a New Idea snow thrower onto my General Electric "Elec-Trak" electric lawn and garden tractor. It snowed last night, so now I have the chance to actually test it out!
Overall, I've very happy with it! Snow was about 6" deep and up to 16" deep in drifting areas. The packed snow pushed into the end of my driveway by the plow was a solid two feet of thick and icy snow!
Overall, the tractor and snow thrower attachment did great! I had to take it slower at the end of the driveway, but to be fair, the snow was higher than snow thrower!
I have chains on the rear wheels, and traction was good, with the exception of when I was backing up. I didn't have any weights on the back of the tractor. I do have weights that install in the rims, but I would need some assistance to actually mount those.
It wouldn't hurt to also have chains on the front. I did find steering wasn't ideal when trying to do a sharp turn with the snow-thrower lowered. If it was raised, steering was fine.
