She works just fine, and powerful too!  How close are you to the railroad tracks?

The railway tracks are about 1 mile away and are very seldom used.

Pretty cool! Love the sound of the train above the sound of ET2! Thanks for sharing the video. But you can keep the snow!

Temperature is a big factor on run time.

Cold Batteries are LESS EFFICIENT than WARM ones. 

Plus all the extra drag from cold trans-axle oil, bearing grease. + ???

You don't keep it in the house, where it's warm?

I don't understand? :D

Found this on the Trojan Battery site.

 

http://www.trojanbat...emperature.aspx

 

At   77 deg F = 100% capacity

At   32 deg F =   70% capacity

At     2 deg F =   50% capacity

You got a fair bit down there again, didn't you.

I read somewhere, that the almanac says March is

going to be the heavy snowfall month this winter.

Oh boy.

I think I better get a snow thrower going, sounds like I'm going to need it, and the driveways getting smaller.

If it gets too small, you won't have to go to work.

UPDATE

 

Tractor went to French Creek plowday this yr and I broke the transmission again. Tractor did well plowing up till the shifter got stuck on 1st gear, creeper gear, still moved but at a snails pace.

I ordered gasket/seal kit that also comes with detent springs, trany had oil leaking out the axle hubs so It was removed taken apart, new seals gaskets put in and the shifter fixed with new detent springs. Shifter is much stiffer and holds position better than before. Old springs were broken and shorter.

I need to get some gear oil in it and it should be good to go. I hope.

I just realized that I've had this thing in use now for more than 4yrs.
