Don, your neighbors might not appreciate this, but I hope you get tons of snow! Heck, I hope you get most of my allotment!

I'm sure it will be a mild winter for us.
Today I worked on converting the 59inch snowblower into a box scraper . I should get it done tomorrow.

Today I finished converting the 59inch snowblower I got free into a rear pull type box scraper . Just could not justify $2,000.00 worth of parts to fix it. Should be fun in the snow and a good rear weight.

Five inches of snow in the forecast for Gaylord tonight so I took off the front forks and hooked up the snowbucket . Maybe i get to try out my new loader cab for the first time. Today I also pulled out another tractor from the back shed to build a frame to fit a blade on the front of it . with a set of chains on the back wheels it should push some snow too.

I just bought another tractor for $100.00 Runs great !, new battery , hydrostatic drive and 14 hp. Is it wrong to have 8 garden tractors ? I don't care if it's wrong , ha,ha,ha.

C'mon! Pictures!

Deb is also posting a you-tube video of me trying out the new mini loader cab this morning with five inches of wet snow. I think I will put a pipe bucket edge on it today . It wants to dig into that nice wet soft grass, grrrrr. Even without heat that cab seams pretty cozy compared to being completely exposed the last two winters.
