I was using an '01 Suzuki 300 king quad. It works great for light snow, but much heavy snow and it gets tricky. Since it is so light, it slides all over the place. It is much faster (depending on type of snow) then one of the power kings, but has no where near the amount of pushing power.

Don't you get Warning Points around here if you move snow with something other than a tractor? :bigrofl:  Don't look now but I just "unfriended" you so I'm not judged by the company I keep. :(

Hmmm..... need to talk with all the mods about this.  That just might call for an infraction point!  :smilewink:

Left our house about noon after cleaning out our place to head north to the in-laws, friend had been by and plowed out most of the drive so just had to do clean up and finish cleaning out to the wood pile.  All is well on the west side of NH.

Amigatec......I wish you could have seen the look on my wife's face when I read her your post.  :bigrofl:   PRICELESS! She's a gardener and well, ummm, errrrr her garden is under a foot or more of snow.


Would she be upset if you told her I bought seed potatoes and onion sets today??

I'll have them in the ground in about 2 weeks.

Hey guys, I know it's real easy to get off track and I love reading what you guys are writing but I'm asking with the greatest respect that we keep this thread for the folks who went through this storm to check in and let us know they are ok.  I don't want to be a wet blanket here and I'm as guilty as anybody when it comes to this but I just feel its important that we take care of our own and make sure all is well.  Sorry if I pee'd in anyone's cereal.

This storm just goes on and on. Woke up today to about the same amount of snow in the front yard as yesterday before I plowed. The blower cut line at the edge of the yard is covered in. It's still snowing and blowing pretty good. I've got to get out there and clear it, go to the church and help shovel and then service is at 10:00. I'm duty custodian today as well as doing sound at the service. I've got to get moving. Hope the roads aren't too bad. The Forester will come in handy today.

I agree with Jeff; with something this important I think we should try our best to stay on topic. I too enjoy everything you guys are up to, but I would enjoy it even more if it was in an appropriate thread. Thank you!

Here in North Central MA we faired ok.  About 18-20" of dry snow.  A real workout to clear but nothing compared to what others are dealing with, and the dry snow doesn't take down many tree limbs.

  Well, it just stopped snowing here. I plowed the driveway again and we probably had about another 6-8 " on top of what we got yesterday with a lot of drifting. Roads here are still bad until you reach a major highway. Probably be tomorrow before they plow them. Our private road is done though. Got some big snow piles.

Took a drive to see what roads were like. Not great! Everywhere I went you could see and hear ATV's and walk behind blowers at work. I didn't see a single GT at work :boo_hoo:

Aww man, that should be a crime. Glad you are safe and sound. Sounds like the storm tracked consistently up the coast. What you described this morning was exactly what we had here in Maine yesterday. Thanks for the pics.

Maybe the GT owners, like you, had all finished their blowing chores, leaving only the ATVs and walk-behind snow blowers still trying to finish the job??

I saw a JD 425 with a blower making short work of the snow while I snowmobiled yesterday! :wave:
