Last week, Environment Canada, forecasted an extremely wet Sept/Oct. for the Great Lakes.

If the last 24 hrs is any indication, they may have made that call right. Bring it on....

Maybe I need to put the blade back on the FF this fall. I do have a rotating orange beacon light!

This gives me mixed feelings.  Having just started with the township this spring I am not sure I want a winter filled with heavy snows on my first winter plowing.  However I do like to use my snow thrower and this will be the first year to actually get to use my 620 blower which I have got painted last week and am almost done assembling.  LOL!!!

Not had enough snow to push, much less blow for a few years now.  I've been watching for a bad winter a couple years now.

Same down here, Daniel. Had a couple 'freak' snows, but no actual winter to speak of.

Kenny I'm afraid f you dont have a blower this winter, the rear blade might not be enough. With the amount of rain we had this summer, we are due for not only snow, but ice and extremely cold temps, look for record cold and record snows

I 'think' I'm pretty well covered for this year with attachments for my Bolens.

 

I have snow blowers for the Estate Keeper, the tube frames, and the large frames.

 

Blades for the tube frames, and large frames.

 

A Sweepster broom for the large frames, and if it gets REAL deep, a FEL on a large Frame.

 

I have a soft cab mounted on one large frame, and before the snow flies, a hard cab for one of the others.
