You guys are making me feel guilty, thinking about the 1-1/2" of snow they are predicting for tonight into tomorrow.

But I've still got the 10" of snow left from last Thursday and I'll be out Saturday pushing back the piles to prevent drifting before the next big one hits.  I put the chains on the Ford Monday night and it got dark in the shed and I finished Tuesday. All I have left to do is put the Tarp Straps on to take the slack out. You All Be Safe out there!!

You can spray Pam on the auger. The kind your wife has in the kitchen.

What do you spray the auger with?

I use snow plow wax, but no-stick cooking spray works too.

We got about 13 or so inches since yesterday.  I took the bat-blower out and did my driveway and a neighbors.  He had a snow blower last year, but it broke.  The snow is light and fluffy so it went fast.  

 

The bat hood worked like a charm.  There was little wind today, so it wasn't much of a test.  It blocked all wind and I was sweating.  Here are some "action" shots.

i had one of those cabs on mine, but the wind got it one day and tore it up. The only real trouble i had was that snow would come in the open back and go down the collar of my coat. I always got hot from the waste up, and my legs froze half off, but it did keep all the snow out of my face.

Glad you got the little one back inside.

Wow,you got a lot more than we did.  Our snow was pretty heavy though.  The Craftsman/Berco never hiccupped, but I knew she was working hard.  My Ariens did a nice job on the patio and the paths in the back yard too.  The walk-behind cab does shift the weight though.  I always feel I have to lean into the handlebars to clear down to the ground.

We got about 4" of snow and ice pellets before it changed to rain. I really didn't have to but couldn't resist plowing it. Only took maybe 15-20minutes with the 2320. Since there was frost in the driveway I could float the blade properly which makes plowing much more fun. 

Heres some pics of my snow removal gear and the driveway. The driveway goes around a bit of a corner then up a hill to the road. About 300 ft long.

Great looking snow team there Brian.  I think the driveway looks much better after plowing that the before shot.  Just my opinion (slanted heavily towards seat time.).
