By purchasing the right attachments, most people can use their garden tractors as snowblowers in the winter. Some tractors can also plow snow using a blade attachment.
When considering adding a snowblower to a lawn tractor or riding mower, research the cost of purchasing a snowblower attachment. Sometimes the attachment alone adds up to the price of a good snowblower. Individuals must also remember that using a tractor for snowblowing increases wear and tear on the tractor and can shorten the tractor's life. While using a tractor to snowblow works well in open spaces, it is generally difficult to maneuver around vehicles or other obstacles.
