I got home and saw how much snow had blown in the drive the two days I was gone. I haven't had much luck lately getting the 600 started but she fired up today and we pushed a little snow. It sure was great to hear the old gal fire up. The son and I will go over her when the weather warms and install new wiring and whatever else is needed. I say the son and I, but George will probably end up doing the most work because he's better at it.

I have a good friend that I grew up with that lives in Decatur, IL. I guess it is close to Carbondale? When I did work in Ohio I couldn't believe the lake effect snow they would get but then Ohio is a little close to the lakes LOL.

Thats great that she fired up. Maybe when I talk to ya on the phone later we could tune it a little over the phone. I want to get the 800 fixed for ya because I know you want to use it. Hopefully the groundhog was wrong but I have a feeling it wasn't. We will get em taking care of :thumbs:

I forgot to ask how it did? Did it push pretty good without spinning too much?

Got the MF "2055" out & used rear blade to scrape sidewalk up to back door. Only 3" of snow, but it's tractor seat time just the same. Steering wheels fit my large hands better than shovels anyway. LOL

It pushed pretty good and even dug through some deep snow near the shed.

I am glad to hear it did good. I didn't know how it was going to do with it not having the posi lock hub but it sounds like it might not need it. :thumbs:

Yesterday, I fired up the trusty 1050 and snowblowed about 3/4 of the driveway when the PTO belt decided to give up on life. I had to put the blade on it and finish it. I'm already dreading replacing those belts in that cold garage. LOL

You know, Bolens has it right when it comes to easy attachment of the implements but it is a pain to replace the pto belts. The drive belts aren't too bad but those pto's are a pita.

Today I started up my 1000 for the first time since December and she fired right up. I then used my 1050 to snow blow the driveway. I'm only running on 1 PTO belt so I got to go nice and slow with it.I'm hoping I can last the winter without having to replace the belts.

Got the Battery charged up in the Big Ten and got a little seat time pushing a little snow around. I did discover that the rear seal in the K301 is leaking and the motor is still low on power so I might put the K321 back together(It chucked a rod a while back and has been sittin in the shed since) and toss it on sometime this week.

Nice, I am procrastinating putting the belt on the pto on the 12. Going to visit the parents this afternoon and probably work on the 800 a little bit and I will take some pictures of the wiring so I can post in the other thread about it.
