They say that the calcium is much safer for the environment ??? And say it doesn't cause rust ??? What a crock !!!! This is why they have state of the art truck washes for the plow/spreader trucks at most of the state pits LOL That crap is very dangerous when first applied this is why they sand and spray at the same time now here in MA....

I was able to get the 318 out and try out the snow blower. I never used it at all last year due to the very mild winter. I left the blower on it all year and waited for some snow. Plenty of other tractors for the other chores.

Let me tell you it was really windy when I got to dad's. That cab was terrific. The blower was super too. Once I got the hydraulics and hand hydro lever coordinated I had a good time making walkways to the barns.

Really nice setup there Dave. Bet it was a good time, I also bet you cleared as much as you could without doing the whole yard. :poke:

As much as I dislike driving in the stuff, I enjoy moving it around. Kind of like playing in a big sand box filled with white, fluffy sand.

Thanks.  Looks like I'm in the middle of the blue streak.  

 

Hey, maybe Kenny or Maynard can superimpose this weather map to the member map. :thumbs:

I haven't a clue as to how to do that. Then again, there is a way, just don't know if my software is capable.

Sorry Guys,I was so busy moving snow I forgot to take pictures. But they are predicting another to hit aroundThursday so maybe next weekend I can get some pictures.

We did get a good skiff this morning but not really enough to move.
