Answer: watch a video of someone else plowing their driveway.

Here's a video I made of me plowing with my Cub Cadet 100. I took it this morning after a good long snow last night. I think we got 6 or so inches.

Well Gfann you did a very good job, but I saw a spot in the drive that you missed.

How many tractors can you spot in the video? Can you find the Speedex?

Yep ! that was nice I didn't even feel a draft :bigrofl: I did see a couple other units under nice blankets of snow, but was too busy jiving to the music to focus on what the specifics were. Thanks for bringing us along for the fun :thumbs:

Well, the other tractors are covered under snow pretty good and there is one in the shed, but in fairness I wasn't expected anyone to see that one. The Speedex is on the side of the shed you can quickly spot the front grill when I pass by.
I think I like Plowing more then Mowing. It's more visually satisfying and you get to do it more often. Last winter was a bust, it hardly snowed at all. This winter is proving to be more of a winter. That was a good snow fall last night. I was looking forward to plowing it. It took about 2hrs roughly. I figured I wouldn't make you guys suffer through all of the video which is around 70min.
