Just a question. I understand how the clutch is used to deliver power to mower decks and snow casters. If you don't use these attachments (plow use only) is the clutch adjustment critical/necessary?

If you do not use it, adjustment is not critical/necessary.

As a side note, be aware that if your tractor does not start you may have to push the clutch lever forward as there is a safety switch on it. Mine gets bumped on occation enough to mess with the switch.
Thank you so much. One less thing I need to worry about. I'll keep the safety switch in mind, that's a handy tidbit.

Peace to all

Thanks Gordy. I bought this to plow and pull things around. And putting a snow caster is more work than I want to sign up for.

accidentally hitting things is why I gave that PTO valve away. I was lucky I didn’t damage the pump on the 646.

I have a walk behind snow thrower and when the snow is just right and no wind I love blowing snow. If I had more driveway / snow to move I agree the snow caster is the way to go. My main goal is to keep in front of our mail box plowed and the end of the driveways. Our mail box sets about 3-4 feet off the road and when the city plows it piles up in front of it and they won't deliver our mail. Not that it matters much to me, but my wife likes getting the mail. Then there is the matter of the wet snow berm at the end of the driveways after the city plows. I thought the plow would be handy to keep those two areas tidied up. Plus if it gets too high I can get the 646 out and put it where I want it. That way I could use both tractors in the same day. That's a win in my book.

Peace to all

Yeah I was kinda in a bind over the 646 when I had to start working on it as soon as I got it home (exhaust, fuel pump + all the time). Then I got it going and we made short work of the big pile of shingles in the back yard, that won her over. So far I got $200 bucks in the 222 and barring a cataclysmic failure (which in my life happens fairly frequently) I should have a solid machine for less than $700 total. Plus keeping me out of her hair, $700 is a bargain.
