I think Im ready,
I had a bow in the bucket, and used a Farm Jack to straighten that. I also had to build a counterweight, so I did it with a erector set. I think Im ready, so bring on the Nor'Eastah!!!

I hadn't noticed that. I like that idea. Even if the tractor is leaning a bit, you could sit upright with the seat. Pretty cool.

Nice looking snow mover. It looks about the same in Maine as here in Nova Scotia. We got a tiny bit of snow yesterday but that is the first time we had anything this year. We had a couple of Nor Easters ...I mean Nor Eastahs in November and normally we would end up with a big plastering of heavy wet snow but this year we ended up with rain both times. I took the loader off my compact tractor yesterday an put the front blade on so I'm ready as well.

Yes, it is a Giant coil spring, funny you mention it leaning..... It already leans a bit. Think it's a 30 year old injuries .

Any way to twist it around? Seems to me that could provide a comfortable ride. Could you get us a couple pics of how it attaches to the pan and the seat?

my G16xl uses the same basic coil spring setup it attaches to the seat bolt (only works on single bolt seats ) but if your heavy like me and you find two i mounted them to the two outboard seat bolts and it doesn't sag at all now with my fat butt sitt'n on it :rolling: . the seat is hinged so the spring folds up with the seat and is not mounted to the fender.
