Well today was just a fun Sunday. Re- mounted the plow, actually it was swapped from the 222 to the 448 after a minor re- paint.
Fixed up a ripped apart tire chain, as I lost a few runners a while back. Nothing a vise, a hammer and a torch couldn't fix. Put in a couple new runners from a parts chain, all is good.
Swapped out the transaxle oil, just so I don't end up like Jayvee, sorry bud .
Then out to the driveway, to fully plow the rest of things , really just an excuse for seat time and make sure the tire chains were on good and tight. I forgot how much of a " non" event it is plowing with these machines. The 448 has loaded tires and chains, and stopped for nothing at all.
The kids wanted a little fun time, so I stopped working and tied a sled to the back and dragged them around the back 4, and they were smiling ear to ear. One of our guests had never driven a tractor before, so I showed her the ropes and off she went, biggest grin I saw of the night.
Little M parked the 448 dutifully out on the driveway, lined up to the fence ready for tonights further 3" of snow.
