Went out after work today to clear the 2 " of snow off the driveway, the plow berm from the front and just to push some of the banks back. We're supposed to get snow changing to rain on Thursday into Friday so I want to make room for more snow and push the banks back while they are soft. Anyway, I cleanup in front of the garage and house and then put the 2320 in high, rev it up and blast up the hill to the road. It's geared high and it's kinda fun doing that. When I went to raise the blade it wouldn't move. It would angle but no lift. I turned around and plowed my way back to the garage thinking I may have a problem with the valve or linkage. Turns out the pin on the bottom of the lift cylinder was gone. I'm not sure how it got out of there. I'm pretty sure it had a cotter pin in it. I looked in the box with my pins and such and no 1/2" pins. There was, however, a 1/2" bolt and a nylock nut that was just the right length to do the job so I was back in business in a minute. So far this year I've managed to keep the ice off the driveway by keeping it scraped down. The weather has helped by not having many freeze/thaw cycles.

Man that outfit is blowing that snow just fine!  Never got to use a snow blower, and if it wasn't blowing back in my face I'd say I'd love to blow some snow!

We got about 3"  of snow yesterday.  Went out this morning with the 682 and cleaned up my drive, around the shop and three of the neighbors drives /parking area.   Got a phone call a few minutes ago from my favorite neighbor.  I had cleaned her drive and sidewalk and she wanted to say thanks.   She sent over a fresh from the oven Rhubarb/Custard pie.    :thumbs:  :dancingbanana:  :thumbs:   It's all mine since the wife won't eat rhubarb.  Hope I don't OD.  :D  :D   Rick

Moved snow with my Ariens S-16 today. Cleaned up my drive and then went over to the neighbor to cleanup his. This made for the third day straight of moving snow.

Stacking the pile higher.

Working at the neighbor. He is in his high 70's with heart trouble, so I do his driveway for him.
