Happened to run accross this on a welding related website but thought it had a lot of merit . Its made with two hand push type snow pusher/ shovel bladed joined together......May not push a heap of snow but it certainly could be very usefull if you got on a snow fall imediately and it was not too deep or wet, be perfect for a couple of quick trips up and down a pavement or driveway..........and certainly cheap enough to make

you don't want any bigger then that the 56 has small narrow back wheels so it would not make the best of a snow remover

I'd have to think it would do fair in a light snow, and probably easier and better than using a shovel. Maybe add some big AG type tires on wider rims and a couple of pounds of weight and chains........

I had an old 65 series (IIRC) that I found being thrown out and used to have some fun with it.......Was more of a vertical engined kart than a mower when it was up and running...Youngin's put many a mile on it tearing up the place.

I use to have a JDR70 with a JD snow plow for it. It worked well with up to 5inches of snow with just chains. But boy did I abuse that little machine and blade. I would use it for Grading the gravel drive as well. Only probelm with the machine was the gear sprocket kept on falling off. Bad desige for that paticular JD RER. I think the only company anymore that still produces a Blade for there RER is Snapper. I know Ariens also use to produced a dozer Blade for there RER as well as Cub Cadet and many other's use to produced snow Blades for there RER's.

No, its two blades from two hand type snow pusher shovels, that were joined together.
