Here you go. SkiTractor in high gear.
Put your gloves and hats on.:smile1:


Thanks Will, Looks like you had one heck of a good time.
I see you made an addition to it since the last pics. Doesn't your beer spill in that in high gear?

About 8" here. Took about half an hour to blow it out of the way. More coming down now.

Great to get outside but I would much rather be mowing grass.

3 inches here calling for a couple more overnight. Did a little plowing with the Cub Cadet 108. I'll try and get some pics tomorrow.

Got some seat time this morning (http://gardentractor...-its-job-11707/) and some this evening. Not sure the exact measurement of snow but it is bare in spots and almost 3 ft in others. Was a little more difficult in the evening because the snow was warmer and the were some larger drifts. Some long stretches of around 15 inches and a couple of big ones I had to ram a couple of times. Tomorrow I will probably pull out the Bolens 1253 with the blower to knock some of the banks back.

I sure had fun on the 455 pushing snow and i can't believe how much it pushes with chains . We ended up getting about 8 inches altogether in Gaylord.

We just had our first real snow of the season here in Maine and I enjoyed some "seat time". This was my maiden voyage on my 1974 John Deer 110 so I asked my wife to capture the event. Here's a link to a quick peak at the fun I had. Hope snow finds you all soon.

Got a little less here (6 inches) but the drifting made some pretty good sized drifts (2 ft. in some spots) but the AC handled it like a champ even if it doesn't have a blower just a dozer blade.

Took about 90 minutes to clear the drive, parking, and 600 feet on either side of the drive so the County plows don't refill the driveway.

Fun little ride on your ski tractor Will, thanks for posting the video:thumbs:

What I thought was 3 or 4 inches on the ground yesterday AM looking out the window turned out to be more like 6-7 inches as my 2WD Buick Rendezvous busted through the heavy wet stuff on the way to work. Boy that car sure can go!! Got home early as it was the night for Kathy's year end party at work and plowed out the drive with my Allis. The ground underneath was still thawed and it was a pain in the but to plow but hopefully the drive is frozen now as it has been 20*F or less since I cleared it. Should be able to get the blower out this afternoon and clean it up a bit, we got about another inch overnight. Should of been doing this for at least a month by now on a "Normal" year, we will see what the rest of the season brings.

It's encouraging to hear the Rendevous is good in snow! I bought one(2 wd also) about a month ago, and have not gotten the chance to test it in snow.
We hardly got a dusting and the wind blew it away. Though My 7 yr old grandaughter amazed me yesterday (it was 45 degrees) and she managed to carry enough snow from the protected areas to build a snow man. it was 32 when I got up this morning and only the bottom ball is left.

I see you made an addition to it since the last pics. Doesn't your beer spill in that in high gear?


Yes, had a ball.

About that addition. That's OE.
And I can prove it.:smile1:

You made me go out & look at mine... I must have the deluxe sticker set, but my "attachment" is gone. Where did you find yours?

Will, that's Darned funny. I did a double take until I clicked on your thumbnail.

Man, I wish I had the "Deluxe Decal" set. A little colour added to the machine wouldn't hurt.
