Chris Olsen posted this picture on one of last year's doodlebug threads. Picture was taken in the late 60s I think. None of mine are set up for plowing snow, buy I think Chad plowed with his this winter. Hopefully he has some pictures to add.

Not a doodlebug, but a monster:

Ok - so who has a T plow? I have a friend here in town that has one but I have not seen another in person. If you have one - how did you overcome the traction issue?

Not quite a stock T, but the T doodle bug is fun to play with in some snow.

The plow is totally manual and operator driven. I built the entire setup minus the plow blade which I bought off craigslist. Some people think it must be very heavy to lift the plow, I tell them to try it and they are pleasantly surprised how easy I made it. I have different adjustment holes in all the levers, the easier it is, the lower you can lift. It gets a little harder to lift it higher when i change the settings, but still isn't bad at all. I am a little limited on my settings, I could probably refine it all a little better as it was all trial and error.

As far as traction, it has a TT rear axle which weighs alot, steel 16" wheels and 8-16 AG tires, so it has the rear weight, but what really immensely helped was the tire chains.

Looking forward to a little snow this year, we were very limited last year.
