Man... this is the life! Tonight I got to play with the tractor's new toy tonight! This is the first year I have the snowblower attachment on the tractor and at the new house, something that I have to use because there is no way for me to plow it! We have about 3" on the ground, with the promise of up to a foot on the way. Now, I did not want to spoil my driveway's snow (need to take a video!) but that huge parking lot next door had plenty, just laying there! I mean, all that snow and nobody was playing with it! So I drive the tractor over there after a trip around the house to clear the sidewalk. Now being that this is the town hall parking lot. I had plenty to play with! Why, there is even a nice hill that I tested my backing uphill traction with the blower raised. I am running the chained turf's that are loaded, plus the 225lb weight box in the rear. I left the wheel weights off because they just stick out too far, and I think with the blower, I no longer need them. Everything worked flawless once I learned that the blower likes to have the snow really fed into it faster than I would of thought. In fact, a crawl seemed to clog it right up. Granted, the pipe feeding the chute has not been painted like the chute was.
Anyway, tomorrow I will have at least 6" to 12" to clear in the driveway and I will take a photo of the old girl in her new snow clearing gear. Stay tuned!
