Got Bubba fired up and used him to help with the limb cleanup. Had some limbs broken off, but leaning on the house. Got the ladder out, hooked a chain to the limbs, & used Bubba to pull them the rest of the way down. That worked real well as I have the box blade on the back and ran the chain under it. Nothing but brute force! Love these FF's!

I got ambitious and fired up the Bolens HT20D and plowed the snow off the sidewalk.

 

We've been having snow off and on for the last couple of days, and it finally built up enough to make it worthwhile.

 

The 20D hadn't been run for over 6 months and the battery was down, so I did have to put a charge on it.

 

After the charge, it started with very little drama. Not bad for a cold diesel on a 25 F day.

Got the MF 1650 out today to snow blow all this snow that came my way, didn't even get it out of the shed when I broke the hydraulic controller handle AGAIN. :mad2:  Well it was broke in the down position so I continued on. I went down the drive and back up when I heard a bang, the chain inside the snow blower broke, :wallbanging:  so it went back to the shed. Then I trudged through the snow to the far back shed and tried starting the Craftsmen which wouldn't start, :help:  got the charger out, got it started, started plowing. The Craftsmen is my back up tractor for snow removal, cause it barely got enough a#s to do the job, and I no I'm really stressing out the rear-end on it. Got the job done, just barely, now I got to clean up my shop to get the MF in there to repair it. Not looking forward to it....Cant even walk through my shop. I'll be a whole day just cleaning, and another day repairing.

The carb is still messed up but the 1650 runs enough to pull a cart. My son and I went around the yard picking up from the lat storm that went through. It's been too cold. We both needed some outside time.

Very windy here today! Had to change out the battery in Bubba (#1 FF). Got a dead cell, but that's the battery that came in it. Dated in '07. Used it and the wagon to take down some fence Aaron wanted out. It's wood pickets. Hoping to use the pickets to make a good area to put the implements without grass growing up into them. Here's the pickets.

Well, yesterday I got out the old Allis B-10 and blew some snow.  Thinking about doing it again today but the weatherman says maybe a chance of an inch or two overnight, so may wait until tomorrow.  I feel like a kid again every time I get on that thing.

I got to use Bubba (#1 FF/20) and box blade to level out the ground in Aaron's shed today. And before you ask, there was video taken. Just waiting for him to send it so I can post. Look for a thread coming soon!

For the first time EVER I used a GT (or anything other than a shovel) to clear snow!! I used the back blade on the Kubota to clean off my drive, the 100 yards in front of our house and my neighbors drive. I really enjoyed it. I think I need to get a front blade before next year!

 

ps: no pictures of course!

I took the Bolens G152 out for a short drive clearing stint with the snowblower. We got a couple of inches yesterday, but the winds were 30+. So I chose to wait for the relative calm and -17° F temps this morning.

And that is not a current pic. It's 17 below!

 

No work today, (cold weather rule) the kids have the day off, (too cold to run the buses? :wtf: ) and the wife has the late shift today and doesn't start until 10:30 a.m.

Just got done with round one of a heavy wet snow. Angling the blade didn't do much, it just piled up. I don't have enough angle to this blade. Broke the linkage for the blade lift, so now to get that fixed for round two this afternoon. I am starting to get tired of snow.

More seat time!  I got off work at noon because of the snowstorm, so after I got home and ate lunch I went out and pushed about 6-8 inches of snow off my driveway and my neighbors' driveway too.  I was just about finished at the street when I watched a pickup truck get stuck at the corner up the street from me.  I went up there with my gt and pushed snow out of the intersection for him so he could keep going.  He still could not get up the hill, so I made him a path to the top of the hill.  He made it this time.  My house is on a snow route, and they plow my street, but that side street is not ever cleared, and the snow piles up there. It is supposed to keep snowing here all night...... we can sure use the moisture!

It did snow all night, and 20 mph wind helped the snow cover the driveway.  got the gt out again yesterday morning and cleared it again...my 140 is ever faithful to its tasks!
