That looked pretty darn snowy and really, really cold there !!
This has been my winter setup for about 10 years now.
It is a mid 70's Toro Groundsmaster with a John Deere blower adapted to it.

My '74 Massey Ferguson and 42" snow-blower.
It looks a little better with the new chute painted up and the cable system replaced though. By next winter, I will have a fully restored and painted blower finished for her.

I was using it the other day to clean off the sidewalk and level off part of my gravel drive after stump grinder guy left. It was @ 36-38* with a slight breeze, and I was right comfy in there. Gonna make moving snow later this winter not all that much of a chore at all.

Having just got the Fergie this spring I don't really know what to expect. There is no fluid in the tires and I don't have weights that will fit the bolt pattern. It came with awesome chains so that might be enough. Another problem is the 3 point blade doesn't have feet so it may remove all my gravel and thats a big no-no with me. Some day I'll build feet for the rear blade to take care of that. I hooked up the landlords Deere blade because it is taller than my blade and I don't want snow falling back over the top. The Ferguson blade that came with the tractor is only half as tall as the deere blade. Snow won't slide off the back side of the Deere blade because the way its built. The framework sticks out the back and will hold the snow. Otherwise I'd reverse the blade or only push going backwards.
The Power King has been my snow plow for the last 4 years. It works very well with my only complaint is its geared too low. I use high gear to plow but reverse is horribly slow and annoying. The PK is weighted up with 100 lbs. of cast iron inside each rear wheel and 25lbs inside each front wheel. The PK blade has feet so it works well in gravel.

I haven't put the chains on the 'Deere yet but will if needed. The Massey has already been out moving snow once this year, and is ready for more
