Northern IN got about 6" of snow last nite and today. Went out at noon to plow. Power King with big ags just sat and spun, got it stuck right away. Went out and got the little Wheelhorse Charger with big chains and hydro and pushed away.......!   Snow was drifted 14" right on sidewalk and in drive. It motored right thru it. Some passes did twice, blade rose up over snow as it was packing. Even went up/down my hilly driveway with some pushes to side when built up.  That darned old wheelhorse is always my Savior in the snow. I'm sure worn out tho w/out a hydro blade lift, left arm and back are sore now. Sure need a hydro with foot pedal and lift at my age. Out for the Hunt for that this summer! :smilewink:

I'm about 8 miles west of Glgrumpy and had around 8 inches of the wet stuff.  The Yard Pro 20 hp GT with 60 lbs of wheel weight, chains and my 275 lbs on the seat handled it with ease.  I continue to be amazed at what this thing can do.

Boy am I tired. I estimate that we got around an 1" - 1 1/2"...........of RAIN!!!!! :mad2:   All last night they were calling for 5" - 8" of wet snow. I was looking forward to staying home with the kids, shoveling and having snowball fights. Little hard to pack and throw water! I wish I had a job where I could screw up all of the time, and not have to worry about being fired!

Ah feel yer pain!  Same thing is going to happen here after the 9" of snow CBS-TV NY's weather clown predicted for he next 2 days turns to rain or doesn't materalize again.  And he never seems to lose his job... only the news anchorman that choked out his wife, but that's another story. (Maybe he has a nice GT and is frustrated by too little snow too!:D)

 

I can't seem to knock the dust off the blade cutting edge no matter what they say is going to happen.
