Well, it took a little time but I managed to collect enought snow in a pile with my JD455 to get three buckets of snow to try out my new bucket on my mini loader. I sure like that new home made blade on my 455 with down pressure. It lifts the front wheels off the ground and peels the ice off the driveway. 11 years that tractor sat all winter and it could have been so fun for small snowstorms. I'm sure enjoying that little tractor and blade. donfirstscoop.jpg

Ya'll must have gotten more snow over there than we did here. Ours was mostly freezing rain and just a bit of the heavy wet snow.

Glad to see you enjoying yourself but I am enjoying the "Kentucky winter" we are having so far.

Glad to see you got some snow to move.
Normally our snowfall total is about 30'' at this time, this year we got only 3'' so far and that has been long gone for a few weeks now.

Thanks for the post.Glad to know that some folks are getting seat time for snow removal. The local news tonight had a segment on the local ski slope still waiting for the right temps to make enough snow to open.It has been above normal temps for us in this area. Nice for the heating bills, but no seat time to play with the tractors.

These three buckets I seemed to still have good steering control on the rear. It will be interesting to see with wet heavy snow.
