This is what I used to move snow in the past and my truck plow . So it will be fun to get 4 or less inches of snow and just play on my 455 JD with the blade. I have always loved to push snow since I bought my first home made tractor at 14 years old.

Now that I am old I don't do as much mowing , landscaping or snowplowing . Instead i find myself puttering in the shop making toys and dreaming about garden tractors.

The mini loaders are so fun to play in the snow and dirt with it's now hard for me to cut them up to make my 4x4 articulating garden tractor. . They both work great and run great. I guess I got to look for a third one now and cut it up before I bring it home.
The second one was a rusty piece of junk and I just had to start sanding it and repainting it and build a new bucket for it and get it looking good. My wife just laughs and said it was a fun project just restoring it. I did have great fun getting it back to looking good again but now i am back to square one not wanting to cut up the second one, ha,ha.

They really are great little heavy duty machines from the 70's . Built like little tanks . I'm going to try now to insert my tractor picture by my membership name.

chainsforjd.jpg Thanks everybody for a warm welcome. This morning I plowed snow/ice for the first time with the new chains and they worked great . My wife posted a video attachment on my webpage if anyone wants to see it. We still can't get the membership picture to show up. It is there but won't upload for some reason . Here is a picture of my JD with the brand new chains.
