I'm a little slow. Or maybe fast for next winter!

First time using my new to me snow blower.

I'm liking this tractor even more, the more I run it. $500 EBay "buy it now" purchase. New coil and works as it should. I mean the biggest problem I have with it now is the condensation in the hour meter! And the hour meter works!

Congrats on your new set up :thumbs: That looks like it will throw some serious snow! Good luck with it.

Nice looking set-up and good deal. That's one of the tractors on my wish list. Hopefully you'll get to try it out soon, get some pics if you do!

I bought one just like it off ebay, it does not have the snow blower,whoch I have no use for, but got a real good deal, and the more I ride it the better I like it. I have to rebuild the mower deck and hope to have it done before summer. I do have other tractors with mower deck, it will be nice to get this one going also

Nice Ford, Rock farmer! Don't see many with a snow blower. I like my 165!

Thanks for your comments guys!

I was thinking of taking it off yesterday. Today I wake up to the man on the radio saying "another 12" tomorrow"!
Looks like I'll have to put the chains and weights on!

Nice looking setup.

 

I have a tractor / blower like that.. Works very well,

 

I didn't try to blow snow without chains and weight because my driveway is fairly steep. I have approx 400 lbs on the back and chains which seems to be about the right amount of weight,

 

It probably would blow snow the way you are setup but would be hard to get traction when you pick the blower up.

That's a nice looking Ford and blower.  I hope it does a great job on the foot of snow you are going to get.  Keep us posted.

Nice looking package you have there.  You know you have to post pictures or video of it during this snow storm?

Snow is not expected till midnight. But, I think I'm ready!

Added chains and the weight box. Two sets of wheel weights and two sets of extra chains in there.

Gased and greased. Checked the air in the tires. This thing is starting to get heavy!

Unfortunately I broke the Shute adjusting rod when I put the blower on. The PO had it wired fixed anyway.

Here's my first attempt at posting a vidio. Just a walk around the tractor!

Good video. You have a great dash and tunnel cover. Those are usually broken!
