Yeah Daniel I just couldn't wait to get the plow dirty. I will probably turn it again when I get the tires loaded and weights mounted to see how much better it does.

I just got in from blowing the snow out of the driveway. We have about 5 inches of snow so far and they are calling for about 5 or 6 more inches by noon Monday. The wind is really whipping the snow around and makes it kind of nasty with snow blowing back in your face. Now where is that cab that I started to make 2 years ago?

:dancingbanana: Had 4-6" this morning, giving me some good seat time.
While I was out, there was a kubota c.u.t. out doing the school across the street. He wasn't impressing me at all with his 2-stage thrower...
However, every time the wind shifted I got jealous of his hard cab and window wiper. :itsok:

2 inches heavy wet snow, then freezing rain and then another 2 inches. Didn't have time this morning & by the time I got home, it had froze hard on the top. The Sears 12 had enough power but not enough weight. The GT5000 barely had enough with the oversize plow.

I had the kids running the shovel... Now THAT was funny.

When I got home from work last night I took the Snapper 1650 and cleared snow from my driveway, parking area and in front of my garage. Then I fired up the Farmall H with the loader and headed downtown ( 1 block ) and cleaned the side of the street, parking lot and behind the bar/resturant. The county will eventually get the side of the street plowed but they are usually here about 3 to 4 days after the storm. We had a total of 12 inches of snow and cars were getting stuck in front of bar so they hire me to clean up and pile the snow so their customers have a place to park without getting stuck. Getting paid to play with your tractors, now that is OK!

I had to try out the plow again after I loaded the tires and put the wheel weights on and I could not tell when I had the plow down or up. I plowed with the plow sunk as far in the ground as it would go and it never slipped a tire. I was really amazed and shocked at how well it did.

Single stage snowblowers do not, I repeat NOT do well when the snow is wet and heavy and the consistency of an ALREADY packed snowball. Not news to anyone here I'll bet.:D

But the seat time was fun. We have about 5 - 6 inches of wet heavy snow. The snow at the end of the driveway is the already packed type. It was tough to keep the chute clear. The Elec Trak did great. Need more weight in the back.

Wet heavy snow =:smiley-score001: Quality seat time = :smiley-score010:

First time blowing snow with the SS12. I learned a few things.
First Blowing snow is kinda fun,
2nd when the wind shifts, it's NOT fun.
3rd I am not used to a snowblower & need more practice.
4th I need more wheel weights.

Looks like it did a good job. Thanks for the video.

When the wind is blowing I usually look like a snow man when I'm done LOL

Using my Massey 1o1o diesel to run the auger to fill a semi with about 1200 bushels of corn. Gotta get back out to sweep the bin floor before switching to last corn bin.

Yesterday i fired up smokey and pulled the larger branchs that fell over the winter and were burried in the snow. They were MUCH bigger once pulled out. I had to hack some limbs off to pull them to the log pile to be delt with later and made 2 trips to do it. The tractor, my 73 MF12G aka Smokey, did pretty well, and didnt snow as much once she was good and warmed up, mostly when the governor kicked in. The i pulled my trailer out back after it spent the winter out front where it got burried in the snow. When the time comes, it will get new tires and be put back into use.
