Got a foot of powder today and minus some traction issues due to lack of weight, the 19.9 did a fantastic job!

Looks like it did a great job!  That looks like fun, even though I don't enjoy the snow like I did when I was younger.

Those sears gt's are great machines.  That Onan looks like it is running fine, your snow blower moved anything you stuck it into.  Thanks for the video!

Thanks for the video. Nice tractor, it does a good job of blowing that snow.

 

Those Sears tractors are just about my favorite! (Used to be "favorite" before I stumbled upon my Speedex 1631!!)

Looks good. I wouldn't get too worried about the traction issue. There has to be some give somewhere. Wheel spin is better than a damaged blower. When you are plowing snow you never know what you can hit. Frozen crap can stop your forward movement but if you weight it too much the machine will give.

19.9hp! Its really more I think, but in the 70's, at 20hp I think you needed ROPS so thats why its "19.9" not 20

Nope! 26x12x12 ag tires with 55lb wheel weights. Gonna load the tires
