Pulled the old 110 out of the garage this morning and washed off the dust. Aired the tires, and greased the front end. She never left the garage last winter due to us getting hardly any snow. We shall see what old man winter brings us this year.

Once I get the trailer projects finished, I am going to word on the blade for the Ford. It could use a little TLC to be ready if I need it.

I have a Wheel Horse GT-14 and have made a 54" wide plow for it this summer. I plan on using this as my "snow plow" this winter, assuming we get some snow this year!
The hydro with hydraulic plow control will be so much easier on this old body!

Shhhhhhh ! It's still summer. Let's not use that four letter word yet. But I agree, it's better to be prepared. Last year we got hit with over a foot of snow on Halloween and shut down the region for well over a week because of power loss and downed trees. It was the only time I had use my snowblower.

Plowed the last of the garden under today and started tilling. If I hadn't lost a belt on the tiller, I'd be done with that little task and able to put the snow blower on. No worries, just wanted to get it off my list

I will most likely be getting it ready while it's blowing outside. I still want to get the plow frame blasted and painted yet before I think about mounting it. Man, I better get moving soon or else it will be to late.
