Good luck.

Thanks, in hindsight, that would have been a good idea. But like you said-hindsight is 20/20 or something like that.

Yes hindsight is always 20/20. Now all you can do is plan and prepare and try to do your best at winning the bet. You better start putting as much weight as ya can on it.

Mine was missing parts too. It took some work and time fabbing up some parts to get it mounted the first time. Do you have the manual?


If it is the manual for the MF12 snowblower your need, I am pretty sure that I have one up in the barn that I could scan. I have found that the blower works much better than the plow in anything more than 6" or 7" of snow in most conditions. When the snow is wet and slushy, however, it is a real pain having to keep getting off the tractor to clear the packed chute. Have you found any good way to deal with this?

Thank you for the offer on the manual Bob, I had it in digital form but it was a matter of finding it. I finally found it and it is on the site in the manuals section.

As for the clogged chute I never got a chance to experience it as the snow was dry and powdery but I am wondering if before each season to sand the inside of the chute nice and smooth and respray it with paint and then apply pam or some sort of cooking oil before each use maybe?

As for the clogged chute I've heard that using a spray ski wax works good.

I've had the same issue with chute clogging on mine (MF4220 thrower on MF 1650) and wondered if part of the problem was the hot exhaust blowing onto the chute. I wrapped some pipe-wrap insulation around it (the kind with tinfoil on the outside) but haven't had a chance to try it with that yet.
