Hello,

I have a ts348d and i was thinking about buying a snow plow for this season. I know that Husqvarna makes 2 different kinds, but they both get poor review. Has anyone attached a plow to your Husqvarna GT and if so, what kind and review.

Thanks.

I have the R322TX rear engine rider so apples to oranges but I was not impressed with either the quality or the price of what Husqvarna had for a plow so I adapted a Swisher ATV plow for about half the price and IMHO it is double in quality. Adopting it to the Rider was easy as it slid right into the front receiver but I doubt it would be easy to adopt one to a GT.

I have a JbJr, which is not recommended for the TS. But the link takes you to the photos of what I had mounted to a GTH. I've since upgraded the blade to a heavy duty blade. I fabricated an attachment so i could use the actuators to lower and raise and turn the blade.

I have the TS as well, but for that I purchased the snowblower for it.
While he shouldn't use a Bucket I wonder How well the Johnny Plow would do

Weather the frame would stand Up to a Johnny Plow

But a Good Brand of aftermarket Plow for the Husqvarna is also Bercomac https://us.bercomac.com/products/nosku-9-berco-48-snow-blade :thThumbsU

I placed my old 486.24441 42" blade from a DYS4500 on my YTH2348.

The brackets fit just fine.

However, after a year, I felt it did not have enough weight to really push more than a couple of inches of snow. I ended up using a 1968 Wheelhorse that does a much better job and probably weighs much more.

I have a husqvarna 48" (steel?) dozer blade on my ts348d. It works pretty good. I originally used it to spread fill in my back yard and now I use it for pushing snow. I don't have wheel weights, but I do use chains.

In that photo of the blade on the husqvarna tractor, is the handle used to angle the blade? If so, is it rotary style (turn it like a chute on a snow blower) or do you just push it forward and back to angle the blade?

I cannot really recall how it angles the blade but it does angle it and raise and lower it. My blade was a little lighter duty than the directions above. This image is from 2009 and with a manual transmission, I felt the Craftsman was probably a little better for snow than the K46.
