Dad said he wanted me to fire up my good ol' MF10 and have some fun with the blower (for my grandparents' joy and amusement LOL).
Now, last time I was running the clutch a lot in first gear to keep from stalling. It was a foot of heavy muddy, and just... Just to be frank with ya' it was a ice-lasagna! (No my name's not frank, it's Ryan :D)
Today we got about 5" or fluffy poofy snow. The other end of the snow spectrum, so to speak.
I was able to run in 2nd or 3rd gear with no problem, even different belt speeds. Yay!





I even let Dad try the Massey. He came back smiling.

That does a really nice job with that light snow.  Looks like fun but it also looks pretty cold!

Thanks for the video Ryan. I'm picking up a MF-14 Monday and can't wait to give her a shot at the snow here up in Maine. Thanks again for posting the video.

Thanks for sharing Ryan. You where doing a great job there.

It cleans things up real nicely.  I noticed, you had a plan when you

tackled it. You considered the wind, and where you wanted the

discharge to pile up.

And then there's the video of your dad. You might want to give

him a few pointers, or instructions next time. Maybe sit him

down in front of a chalkboard and draw it out for him. :thumbs:

 

Muffler sounded/looked great !
