He Plows Snow With Tractor Tires
"I used to clean snow out of my yard with a tractor loader but then it would be piled everywhere and when the wind blew, it would drift right back in. I decided to find a better way," says Warren Jenneman, Minot, N.Dak.
  "A local tire dealer had big tractor tires available for free. They even delivered them to my place. I bolted them together side by side with a 2 by 3-in. steel plate over the bolts on each tire so the bolts wouldn't pull through. Then I ran a chain from each tire up to a clevis on the tractor drawbar. That way no tire can sag backward.
  "This tire plow is 25 ft. wide. I pull it with a Deere 4630 with duals. I pull it around the driveway and just keep working the snow down. I've used it to clear snowfalls of up to 25 in. and it worked great. I had to tie the chains together just behind the tractor to narrow them up so they wouldn't catch on the duals when turning."
