This last snow storm was a wet one , and pretty rough on the little Kubota D600 ! It was rolling coal quite often. I have a little vid. of it during clean up at the end of my driveway from the city plow.
We got about 10" total this last one and now they are calling for another 4-8" Wed. Good Grief!!!!

It's tossing that wet snow pretty far. It's loading down but doing the job. That stuff at the end of the driveway is a severe test for any blower!

Yup, I call the stuff at the end of the driveway engine killer.  I learned the hard way to take that stuff slow and steady.  Your D600 seemed to do pretty good with it.  Thanks for sharing the video.

Love to hear those diesels work.  That wet snow can really soak up the horse power.

 

Ty that isn't plowing, that's throwing dirt!

Kieth, your diesel is doing a great job. :thumbs:

 

I want to know what the guy plowing is going to do with the huge open furrow when he gets done throwing the dirt 8' away. :(

 

Maybe it's going to be for open ditch irrigation. :bigrofl:

So does it suck back the fuel ? when loading it up don't you also have a fender mounted fuel tank ?

Not at all bad on fuel, and yes I turned the left fender into a fuel tank. It did the last 2 storms on about 1.5 quarts.

Yeah, that cub can sure pull but he is also wasting a LOT of diesel out of that stack. And instead of throwing dirt 4 rows over I'd rather see him pulling a 2 or 3 bottom at an appropriate speed!

Exactly why these diesels are so prized!! After seeing my heavier duty gt's vs his box store huzzy, my neighbor decided to get a Cub M50s zero turn with a 23hp twin. Then made the comment that the hopes he saves some gas while mowing this year... boy is he in for a surprise!

That is the reason the 318 is used very little since I got the 1500 Ford. 1/2 gal per hour and I rarely run it over 1500-1700 RPM.
