QT1900Snow1.jpg QT1900Snow2.jpg QT1900Snow3.jpg QT1900Snow4.jpg Well, Just after Christmas here in Maine I got 14 inches of nice snow...2 days later I got 6 more. The Old "QT19", well she worked some, then rested some lol. About an hour into  plowing with the FEL all Hydro's stopped !! the PTO mounted Hydro pump FELL off. The mounting bolts were worn and just gave out. It took about an hour  Drive to tractor Supply to get some new bolts and get the Pump remounted. Next issue My QT runs good for an hour then she starts  act as though she is starving for fuel. I have to choke it to get it back to the barn. What seams to work is I take off the air filter and she will run again. My guess is I need to rebuild the carb. Gotta figure out where to get a rebuild kit for a 30 year old Engine.

 

Well after 4 days of plowing and scraping and pushing back banking's  I got to taking care of the kids. I built a snow hill and snow ramp for the kids to practice there snow board skills. QT made the kids happy. Check out the pic

That's more snow than I care to see at one time. Glad you got some seat time. Guess the pump would have done that if it was summer work you were doing. Thankfully, it was only bad bolts. Maybe it's trying to tell you the air filter needs changed out?

Nice pics and tractor. In addition to a new air filter, try some fuel deicer in the fuel tank before rebuilding the carb. Good Luck

You guys sure got a lot more snow than we did in Nova Scotia. Looks like you've got the machine for the job!
