In Deep Snow? Looking for your driveway? We all know that living in an area that is hit heavy with snow can get rough. Winter can throw us the toughest weather and we must find the best way to tackle it. Trying to plow, shovel and push through the snow without a good machine to help can feel like a monumental task, even if it is simply removing snow from the sidewalks. It’s a physically demanding job to do by hand and a powerful tractor can help make winter snow clearing a whole lot easier.
There are a multitude of tractors and snow blowers on the market to help clear snow. And deciding on the one for you can be a daunting task. A tractor that really stands out in my mind as the ultimate snow tackling machine is the Ventrac compact tractor with a V-blade and snow blower attachment. Built with commercial grade components, these tractors and attachments are designed to be tough. And tough is what you need when winter comes along. You need a tractor and snow blower that will hold up to the rigors and challenges of winter weather. And I feel that Ventrac is just that tractor.
Several things make this tractor work well for clearing snow. The compact design makes the tractor small enough to fit nicely on sidewalks. No more clearing sidewalks with a shovel! The strong engine power of the Ventrac, as well as the all wheel drive traction, will help you push through mounds of snow you never thought possible. Attach a V-blade and the tractor will quickly clear your sidewalks of snow, saving you many hours of manual labor!
When your driveway is buried in snow, the snow blower attachment mounts on the front of the tractor so you can clearly see where you are going. This snow blower is a two stage system featuring a 220 degree rotational discharge chute designed to easily throw snow up to 40 feet in distance. Hydraulically controlled, it is extremely easy to operate and can be operated from the seat of the tractor for driver comfort. The tractor also has an optional cab for ultimate driver comfort in the nastiest weather…keeping you warm and dry!
I feel Ventrac is a fantastic machine that can make winter life more bearable and easier to handle. With power enough to take on tough work, yet compactly designed to fit tight spaces, it really is a dream to operate. No longer do you need to dread winter snow and wonder how to deal with tough weather conditions. One tractor will get more done and take less of your time doing it.
Kanchipuram sarees are also known as Kanjuvaram sarees and are believed to be the most superior silk sarees in the world. They are known for their heavy silk, motifs and gold cloth. Due to the prestige that comes wearing these outfits, many people wear them only during festivals and important occasions.
Types Of Kanchipuram Sarees
There are three main types of these sarees:
Pure zari : they are said to be the original, genuine Kanchipuram sarees. They are made from three silk threads. There are both simple and elaborate sarees where the most elaborate cost up to 100,000 rupees.
Textile zari : they are lightweight and come in a wide range of attractive colors and designs. The cool thing with them is that they are not as expensive as pure zari so you can afford them. According to experts, you can get a good quality textile zari for as low as 2,000 rupees. While the outfits are cheap, their main flaw is that they turn black over time as they are not pure.
Polyester / silk mix : they resemble the original silk sarees, but they are much lighter and cheaper. They are made from pure silk, but only one thread is used.
How to identify a Kanchipuram saree
Due to the popularity of thee sarees, there are many unscrupulous businessmen who try to make and sell fake Kanchipuram sarees. To avoid losing money to these people you need to be keen when making the purchase. Here are some of the things that you should look out for when buying:
Zari border : the zari border is made from a silk and silver thread. The weaver twists together these two threads and dips them in pure gold forming a zari border that is only specific with Kanchipuram silk sarees.
Thread color : a pure Kanchipuram saree is made from a red silk thread. You should pull a thread from the outfit and determine its color. If the color is not red, you should not buy the outfit.
Price : quality comes at a price; therefore, if you come across a saree that is being sold at a low price you should be wary. When buying you should remember that even the most basic Kanchipuram saree goes for a price above 8,000 rupees.
Kanchipuram sarees are great to have; however, you should ensure that you buy the right ones. As rule of thumb you do your research and ensure that you buy from a reputable store.
