Foreign Are you coming Foreign Takes a few times And I'll get there Probably not this time but it's coming Soon Wow this is a new record Oh boy it really wanted you there Foreign Oh My God Folks how we doing welcome to Good Works Tractors it is that time of year it's It's chilly the snow is coming down and While it's not sticking to the driveway Here just yet we got a real cold spell Coming and I'm sure in a few days They're calling for snow five days in a Row I think six if you include today and so We're gonna have snow on this driveway Soon we're standing on an asphalt Driveway here I've got a concrete Section as well I know a lot of you guys Are dealing with that or or something Decorative something that is not just You know gravel or crushed stone or dirt Right and you want to keep that Investment in Tip-Top shape for as long As you can so I thought it'd be a great Time to give away some of our Uhmw this excellent product here I'm Going to tell you more about it we're

Going to give you a bunch of tips today On how to protect your driveway and keep Traction too because those are two of The most frustrating things losing Traction when you're sitting there Spitting your wheels not moving that Snow where it needs to go and then come Springtime when everything melts off you See the damage you see the rust streaks You see all the stuff that just is going To add up to be more money to repair it So let's tell you how to avoid those Pitfalls and we're going to tell you how To enter that contest to win your own Uhmw a little bit later on all right so We have this stuff in a lot of different Shapes and sizes depending on what your Needs and application are but uhmw Uhmw stands for ultra high molecular Weight and then it's polyethylene all Right so it's a very hard plastic now This stuff is recycled a little bit Cheaper there's some like some higher Grades of this that you would use in Like uh and food production facilities But for plow and snow you don't need That so this saves you some money going With this hey you viewer pay attention Down below for five seconds The simple way to sum it up is that it Cuts like steel but protects like rubber Now I will say that you'll see this Advertised as being as hard as steel and I do think it's a very durable product

It's going to last a lot longer than Rubber wood but if you're using it on a Really abrasive surface you'll have some Guys that that want to replace an old Worn out steel edge with this and use it On like their gravel driveway I don't Think that's a good application for it Just gravel and rocks and stone are very Abrasive and very rough in texture and It's going to give an uneven wear Edge On this surface so I think stick with Steel there but for asphalt concrete Decorative Stone all that kind of stuff And absolutely A1 material it's it's Hard to beat you just can't beat it Because the rubber is not going to going To cut through that pack snow at all This stuff really will do a good job but It's going to do that job without Damaging it or leaving rust streaks like Steel wood and so you'll see we have a Few different varieties here and so we Even make it in a in a skid runner for HLA snow pushers so you can add those on Too a lot of different thicknesses this Thicker one that you see right here It's two inches thick we actually sell This for bucket edges so if you have a Pre-drilled bucket or if you want to Drill out your bucket you can Countersink your bolts right up through Here you know leave maybe three quarters Of an inch or a half inch of material And you still have an inch and a half of

Material to wear through awesome for That right there the big beefier stuff For bigger snow plows for the snow Pushers thinner stuff for your smaller Snow plows rear blades and even smaller Than this just two inches for snow Blowers too all right so this really is Tip number one is use the right material To protect your driveway it's going to Make a world of difference it is Expensive stuff I'm not going to deny That but it is cheap in comparison to Expensive driveway repairs and and one Final note on this too this is the Thinnest as far as three quarters of an Inch it's the thinnest that we sell You're going to see a lot of stuff out There on eBay some other websites too That will sell half inch maybe 3 8 of an Inch thick I wanted to go over the top And just go more robust and so this is Going to be thicker than most of the Other stuff you're going to see out There on the market and of course we Have the thicker stuff too all right now Of course if you maybe can't afford or It's just not in the budget right now a Piece of uhmw you don't want to do that If you want to try something different I Would suggest raising your plowing Edge Above the surface and I know that kind Of goes against the traditional grain of Thought of of scraping away all the snow But

Is the trade-off worth it right if you Have a real just tiny little skiff of Snow that you leave on there maybe a Half inch or an inch or less I guess Let's say you oftentimes that snow is Either going to melt away once we get a Sunny day or at least going to pack down To a real a real thin layer and then at That point you have something to to kind Of ride against and ride along and not Make contact with your driveway at all And so perhaps it could be a way to get By without investing in in something a Little bit more expensive like uhmw and Just see how that goes for you and kind Of going along with that same train of Thought you want to limit your down Pressure when you can so if you are just Kind of whether it's with uhmw or rubber Or steel I mean if you're just kind of Using your your loader or your Hydraulics to push that blade down into The driveway well I get the the want the desire to do that To kind of completely scrape Everything Clean but you know depending on the Condition of your driveway that's good Or bad if you're catching edges you know Cracks that maybe aren't filled uh this Year Maybe a transition between like the Public roadway and your driveway there's A lot of areas there where a blade can Catch and really cause damage quickly so

One way you can avoid limiting that down Pressure is to use float on your tractor And pretty much every modern day tractor Is going to have a float function which Is like a detent position it's going to Actually relieve the hydraulic pressure And just let the weight of the blade the Weight of The Pusher the way to the Loader just kind of Ride Along the Ground and as you're going along and it Works best in a straight line if you're Turning a lot pop it back out afloat and Kind of give yourself some some more Weight on the front tires but then put It back in when you're going in a Straight line it's going to follow the Contour of the ground just kind of Ride Along and those little undulations in There it's not going to want to dig into It or cause any unnecessary damage it's Going to be your friend then of course Go through the effort to mark your edges Now is the time to do it not when you Have the snow already on the ground but Mark the edges of your driveway the Transitions from one material to the Next where there could be a lip again Going down to those public roadways Oftentimes very awkward angles and Transitions there where it's easy to Cause damage and very frustrating I've Had a couple areas of my at my last House where there was just damaged Concrete right in that transition Edge

There and it just always frustrated me I Knew exactly how it happened I just Couldn't do anything about it well I Could have but I didn't folks I want to Take just a second to tell you about our Channel sponsor rim guard they are a Liquid ballast solution they line up With exactly what we do here on Good Works which is talking about tractors And tractor safety we see it as simple As this if you own a tractor you need Rim guard in fact some attractors Include rim guard as standard out of the Factory liquid ballast is simply weight All right and this weight hides inside Your tires it stays there all the time It's a safety concern because tractors Are almost always too light and too Tippy out of the factory the number one Attachment used by every tractor owner Is their front end loader so when you Pick up something heavy on the front end Your back end wants to pick up off the Ground rim guard liquid ballast helps Keep your back end planted to the ground But beyond safety is going to help Maintain traction because if those rear Tires those power driving tires are on The ground you have traction to go where You need to and you're going to operate More efficiently because if those rear Tires aren't on the ground you're not Going to pick up as much as you need to Or take it where you need to go rim
