Never heard about nitrogen from snow before & plowing under snow was a vague idea at best. Glad to have learned something new today.

Thanks Guys!

You should be out plowing right now! :-)

I have done the chain thing in the past as well; works good.

There is alot of nitrogen in rainwater, so therefore in snow, too. We have been lucky; it has been a mild, mild "winter" in WI this year.

If you get cold, you can make a real cheap "windbreak" from an appliance box. An empty appliance box, that is. I did that one winter,for the H that I had, for which I used to plow snow. I had just gotten a new refrigerator, and with some tape and a utility knife, I stuck that empty box on the H. Even had a door in the rear! I wish I had taken pictures; it looked ridiculous! I had a warmer time plowing snow that year though. It helps! A bit of a fire hazard, so be warned!

Best of luck!

I agree! I should be out plowing. :v) My chains did not turn up in my search this afternoon/evening. What was supposed to be chains for my tractor, turned out to be chains for the Ford AA truck I had. Might have loaned them out to my uncle. I think some of his Deere B's are on 11.2x38 tires. I'll have to pay him a vistit in the AM.

There is a windbreaker around here that came with my Grandpa's H. It's an F&F job, but, just like your box windbreaker (amusing/good thinkin'!), it keeps a majority of the chill out. I'll have to see If I can piece it together tonight, yet.

When I was a kid, the guy I helped had a 67 Ford 1 ton truck with duals on the rear. He had a set of chains to get around in the winter. For tough fall plowing, he would hook both chains together and put them on the land wheel on his JD 4010 with 15.5x38 rear tires. Worked good. Chris
