Nice. I have the same GT and cart. Its a beast.
Pls post back how the snow blade works for you. I was looking at that, but am pondering the JB jr. Trying to get a feel for real usefulness vs. expensive toy.

I have the DB and have used it with SNOW and DIRT and really like it.I also have the bigger cart and put everything I can in it and again so far I really like mine. As far as with the DOZER BLADE--SCRAPER BOX----
ROTOR TILLER---PLOW ---DISC---ROLLER---and 48" MOWER DECK I KEEP THE WHEEL WEIGHTS ON AND THE FRONT WEIGHT ALSO. ( see the side picture. This is just how I feel about the GT-5000 and I have other mod's done .I JUST REALLY ENJOY IT.

Nice looking unit...I have a GT5000 too...Is the angle of the blade controlled from the lever or do you have to get off the tractor to angle it??

I go fooled, I thought it was the loader in the background when the picture
first started to load, then the GT5000 started to appear.

I have a GT5000 with the dozer blade. I used it all last year and was
happy with how it plowed up to about 6in of snow. With enough weight
on top of the tires, that GT will push a house down.
Get ready to have some fun.

I just noticed AndyP's avatar. I didn't realize that Andy(admin) was a ThunderCats fan.

God, that makes me feel like an old geek.

Unfortunately, the loader in the back is not mine....

Argee, the blade turns left or right from a handle that attaches to an arm that attaches to the tractor frame near the mower deck lift arm (which raises and lowers the plow) - no need to get off the seat to turn it. Works pretty well....

That does look like some nice machinery you have. I lived in northern ILL. for 23 yrs.,so I had my share of snow.I think the best machine I had back then, was a aluminum snowshovel!! I mowed the lawn today.And now I hope my GT will just go into hibernation until next spring.

Gottta love the GT5K. Last month I mowed everyting in sight. Now Mulching every leaf on the ground. can't wait to try the GT5K for snow.
Made out like a bandit this wknd, went to my wife's cousins barbeque/bonfire Saturday, normally boring, but pretty cool because he restores big old diesel old trucks for fun.

Asked him since he's always buying /selling stuff tlo keep eye out for any garden tractor attachments. He says, follow me. He leads me around the garage and show s me a BRINLEY moldboard plow, set of discs and cultivator. He says 50 bucks, I say I'll get the truck. Now all I need is the snow/dozer blade or JB Jr and I'm set.
