Walker Snow Plow

48" expanded to 60" almost.

The rubber strips I got weren't quite wide enough to fill the wings.
The top rubber blow over flap I think I'll like it like this, but if not its easily modified with a sharp knife.

Are the tires going to give adequate traction once you get that big old blade full of white gold?

Be safe, do it right, follow this video, and pay the extra for his salt spreader.

Allegedly the super aggressive ones that I put on there do the job.

That should do the trick for what Troy was looking for.

Walker Plow

How did the plow work out last winter? I have been looking for a used Snowthrower for my Walker but they are spendy. Don't know how much I would use it but it would be great for certain situations.

As I was told the tires work great as long as you aren't on ice.

If you get a blower you'll need to get the tires. The turf tires are useless on snow and ice.

I ended up taking the wings off mainly because I didn't have strong enough rubber cutting edges.
That little machine is great. In fact I know have two blades.
Not just the one shown here.
