I looked at my plow and my cab the other day. Not ready for that time of year. Going to have to make new plow mounts for a different tractor first.

I've just left the plow on this summer because of dirt moving & the GT6000 doing my mowing. Kinda nice not climbing under it this fall. :D

Caseguy's just ahead of the curve... we've gotten snow on Halloween, but rarely enough to plow... unless you're anxious for seat time :D

I have been saying for the last couple weeks that I want to get some of the snow throwers and snow blades mounted but just haven't had time yet.

I don't like winter at all. Luckily, we don't get the kind of winters you experience, but what we do get is too much for me!

(I need a blade for my Speedex, then I'd be ready for winter!)

When do you get your first snowfall?


We usually don't get anything significant that sticks until mid December...but it does get cold here which is a serious deterrent to laying on a cement floor in an unheated garage at some later date!

SHOW OFF!! LOL! Your rig is a lot nicer than mine! I wish I had a cab for mine, but as much as I have to get off, it would be a pain...warm...but a pain.
