Well I'm rippin down the 72 Sears ST/12 this winter for a full resto so the dozer blade is getting done as well. No snow action for it this year. I will be useing my ol' Ariens which has been the "backup" in the past but has never found and heavy, wet or thick snow that'll stand in er way so I have faith she'll do the job this year. She better.....lol

New chains this year so that will take some time.. Need to put a new blade on the wiper. It's getting close to being ready. I think I'm going to leave the cab and blower on this spring and just use this one as a dedicated snow blower.. (I need another tractor anyway !! )

It looks like you are more prepared than I am. It's easy to put off getting things ready as I don't really care for cold weather and snow anyway. I bet your weight box really helps out a lot.

Well the 445 is ready anyways. Just need the 2520 ready in case of a big one. That's a matter of just hooking the blade up and plugging in the block heater and covering the tractor.

Just about, I made shorter hanger brakets so I can use the front blade for my 52 Power King on my 75 Jim Dandy. I want to see if it workes better than my rear blade. I currently have the duals off and am ready to put the blade and chains on and leave them on for the winter just going to wait a little longer.

Yep

I just put a cab on the HT20D with the hydro angle blade, CaCl filled tires and chains. I have a set of wheel weights as well, but I think I'll wait until after the first snowfall, and see if I need to go to the trouble of mounting them.

I have a G11 with a snowcaster ready to go as well.
