Blew some snow

Was NOT without problems though.
First off, throttle and choke cables were frozen, so had to get them free.
Then, found out the the snowcaster was frozen to the ground. :wallbanging:
Decided the heck with it, I'll just use the 1886 and FEL. Nope. Throttle and choke are frozen even harder than the 1256 was, so back to the 1256.
Got my floor jack under the snowcaster and got it free from the ice it was embedded it, and was off the the races.
I soon found out that while the snowcaster throws snow pretty good...phone books don't go through them too well. :blush2::blush2::blush2:
So, back to the garage and managed, with the aid of a crowbar and a few 4 letter words, to get the book out of the auger, and went back at it.
Did my SHORT drive and front sidewalk. Did the driveways of both of my neighbors while I was at it. All in all, was a lot of fun, and a learning experience.
I was impressed at how far that rascal will throw snow.

Glad to hear you got to get some seat time though
These single stage blowers will eat anything that gets in the way... a couple years ago my old Yellow snow caster I had on my 1050 decided to eat a screw driver
