I got one running & used the playtime and engine sound as therapy... does that count?


Yeah, why not! You had therapy "With" your tractor!

Looks like it'll push some snow, no chains either. That's great.

:bigrofl: MUCH easier than setting the date... I love it!! :bigrofl:

I'm a fan of using chains, but These save the driveway... So far I have not spun the wheels. The weights are 95# each

I set the date then when the battery dies the date gets screwed up again. :wallbanging:

I haven't done anything with my tractors today as I am working my 24 hour shift but when I get off at 7 tomorrow morning I am going to have plenty of snow to play in and try out the snow blade and snow blower. It is about time we finally got some snow.

I plowed the driveway twice last night, but my MF12 was no match for the snow we had today. So it stayed in the shed today, and my moms friend plowed us out.

That is what George had to do last year. His MF12 was fine on smaller snowfalls with the blade but the deeper stuff needed the blower.
How much snow did you folks get ?

Well I finally got some snow to play in with the tractors. We got 12 inches. When I got home from work this morning there was 10" in the driveway. I had the blade on the Bolens 1600H and the weight but no tire chains. I was able to push a little ways down the driveway but I couldn't back up so I put the chains on and that made a big difference. I bladed snow for about an hour so I could get my car out of the road. After some breakfast I bladed some more and the decided to try the Bolens 1220 with the snow blower. It would blow snow well but could move around. I only have the studded tires on and no extra weight or chains. It was parked real quickly and I put the snow blower on the 1600H and continued having fun. I was almost done and I hit something hard and broke my weld on the driveshaft for the blower. I will repair that tomorrow. So I spent about 3+ hours on the tractors and I am really impressed with the single stage snow blowers and also impressed with the 1600H and how high I was able to push the snow. Here are some action shots I got the wife to take.Picture 003.jpg

Well, I can't measure up to those who spent their day pushing/blowing snow (glad for that, though!). All I did was haul a wagon load of firewood from the pile to a spot closer to the house.

Fun was had by all in the family. I plan on doing some repairs and upgrades today and then playing in the snow again.

Sunday (the 26th) I hauled the LGT 165 to the church and plowed off the parking area. It was the first time I plowed snow with it and it worked great (like I expected).

Since it out was cold and I could see the tractors breathe I noticed that the muffler has a leak, going to have to see what kind of warrenty Olcowhand has on his handywork.

How much snow did you folks get ?

We got 18 inches total. The last 6-8 was what finally did us in with the slush.

Full LIFETIME warranty, but only when delivered in person! Sorry there's a leak. Drive on over & I'll take care of that pronto!
