I decided to sand my ice chunk covered driveway in advance of more crappy weather tomorrow. My JD 214 sits in my tractor tent on a piece of carpeting. I attached my sand spreader and started to roll out of the tent. I didn't get very far! The combination moisture and cold caused this:



The carpet was frozen to the rear tires and chains:



I was stuck pretty good until I unhooked the sander and slowly backed up:



The carpet and tractor are now free!:

Does the carpet match the drapes? --Sorry, couldn't resist. :drunkie:

On a serious note, is that a drop spreader you use? have you used it with salt?
It is an old drop spreader I modified. I drilled sheet metal screws into the solid rubber drive tire for traction and extended the handle so I could reach it with the weight tray on my Craftsman. I only use sand, mainly because I never use salt on the driveway but also because I think the rust is all that's holding the spreader together, so salt probably isn't a good idea!
