I have about 3 inches of snow with a crust of sleet on top of it at the moment.  I have nothing ready here at the moment as I have been busy on other projects this fall with the house.  The blower for the MF12 is tore apart at the moment waiting on bearings and then a paint job before reassembly.  The 107 that I use on my QA36 IH thrower is at the farm at the moment and I haven't serviced it for winter duty yet.  The 100 is here at the house as well as it's blade but they are not together and the tractor is still in summer attire with the deck on and my chains are among the missing currently.  I guess I just gotta get out the good old snow shovel and go to work.  Might wait till the morning though just to see if it does anything else overnight.

Another batch of wet heavy snow..... the diesel should be 30hp for this crap...... it did it though with out and complaining. I was whining though... had the shovel the deck.... drifts were almost 3' deep .... on the deck.... tractor and blower did great except when I found the edge of the flower garden.... DOH! Get the wrenches and new shear bolt...a minute later and we were' back in business.
Sorry for not taking pics, I was in a hurry and it was raining so visibility was pretty poor.
I may jus ponder building me a nice hard cab with wipers, that plastic bag thing is getting annoying with all this wet snow we get...

My daughter had fun though! (Or should I say Dad did lol)

We had about 6" of heavy stuff, but it wasn't wet.  The Craftsman/Berco combo handled it without a hiccup, but you could feel her working hard on the first pass down my 600' driveway.  I probably have the skid shoes set too high for this time of year.  I think I was picking up a lot of gravel.  I did my drive, then I happened to see my next door neighbor shoveling the bank at the street.  So I drove down and cleared her drive too.  Apparently her husband never taught her how to use their snowblower.

Well I put the plow on the 165 and scraped down the drive in preparations for the next bit of snow this weekend and then put the blower back on and blew the stuff into the next yard LOL
