Tire Keeps Snow Blade From Digging In

After years of digging up gravel with his snow blade that later had to be cleaned up in the spring, Joseph Edes, La Veta, Colo., hit on an idea that lifts the blade just enough to keep it out of the rocks.

 

   I slid an old tire onto the end of my rear snow blade. Keeps it from digging in and just works great. If the blade gets overloaded, I just lift it to dump the snow and then back up to push it out of the way. The tire helps when backing up, too, says Edes.

 

   A short length of rope holds the tire in place.
