Yes the 2 machines are not really comparable. Both are great at what they do best. If the kubota cab was a bit quieter and maybe a high/low range it would be hard to beat possibly. I would consider them in the low range currently and often wished the had a high range you could use.That heater is great, you could be in a t-shirt when plowing. The a/c is great but during the summer if I'm cutting, I would rather be in the rhino....that might change.
Always nice of the DW's to point out our short comings of details missed in our workAfter I was done plowing with the 4540 we went for a ride, on the way down the driveway the wife mentioned some snow that was left in the driveway so when we came home, I jumped in Karl and plowed a few more trails along with cleaning up the driveway.
I'm usually the picky one on the driveway so we had a good laugh. It looks like February could be a bad snow month in our area but I made enough areas for snow storage that we should be fine.Always nice of the DW's to point out our short comings of details missed in our work
We have had very little accumulation of snow this winter. I have pushed the driveway twice this winter and truly it wasn't completely necessary those 2 times. The storm last week and early this week stalled over the great lakes and never made it up here, unlike NY and the the other places. Last night big winds and wet snow arrived and will bring our coldest Temps of the season thus far. This is our 10 day forecast with Temps in Fahrenheit. Again not much snow expected but definitely a dip of the mercury.I'm usually the picky one on the driveway so we had a good laugh.

How much snow did you receive from this last storm?
Those Kubota RTV machines will tow large trailers full of wood.
I've walked it through the woods plowing some trails, it surprised me on how well it did. I have chains for the back tires but haven't used them.Not only that but I have a 225 gallon sap tank in the bed of mine during syrup season . Hauls over 1600 lbs . Mine is 5 years old with the same v plow as woodlands . I’ve had to open up our dirt road when the snow drifts in completely shut , no problem . With deep snow and the plow set to a “V” the Kubota goes straight as an arrow .

How is everyone in your family?
Once we start warming during the and back to freezing at night, our driveway can get pretty slick.I’ve never used chains , really doubt I would need them unless there was ice .
Family is doing good woods , thank you for asking .
We're getting the Lake Effect today, we received a good three inches of sugar snow overnight and if it continues to snow like it is, maybe another 8 inches of the white stuff.
