While at the show last month I had two issues. I forgot the flags were sticking up and backed under the canopy. Broke both the wooden staffs on them. Went to Ace Hardware today and found some 5/16" by 36" aluminum rod. Cut it in two and rubber cemented the flags to that. I may bend them, but not break! Also, my caution light would not stay on it's mount, so I took some 1/2" strap and made a piece to keep it up there. Also gave me a place to put a small bungee over the top of it.

It may not be needed as that was probably a rare circumstance breaking those flags off, Kenny, but maybe a local junkyard has some old truck and car radio antenna springs? Just a thought.

I finally accepted the fact that winter weather could happen any day and the forecast is saying possibly 4-6" Thursday afternoon and night with high winds. The 12G is now ready to start it's second winter of snow removal. I changed the gear lube, greased all the zirks, reversed the rear wheels, put the weights and chains on and mounted the blade this afternoon. The engine oil got changed a week or so ago.

 

Bring it on old man winter---we're ready again!

I broke them backing under the canopy. Didn't realize they were that high. Going forward they were fine. Might be different with the aluminum rod!

the other day i put the jd 300 to sleep for the winter, and gave dad his battery back... also stole the battery from the craftsman, brought inside. 

 

decided to find out if the roper/sears/moto mower would start in the cold and snow. cranks for a good 5 seconds, started right up.

Tried to fix the intermittent spark problem on my snowblower and made it worse.

I'm going to give it another try tomorrow night when I can take it up and put it in the garage

Took my winch mount into work so I could use the 4' pipe wrench and the big ole vise to straighten it out and re-weld. I misjudged one of my big corner fence posts back in the summer and caught it with the corner of my dump bucket. didn't seem that hard of a hit, but my gut jammed the steering wheel and I bent the lower arm mounts for the bucket/snow blade. Got'em all bent back close to original and welded up at work, snow is starting to fly :boo_hoo: :boo_hoo: :boo_hoo:

Chained up my LGT 145 and added oil to the differential as is has a slow leak.  Ready for the big snow falls.

Replaced the blade on a plow I got for my cub. Old bolts were half warn through I know I could have just flipped the old blade and used it again but I figured I might as well just start new
