I took off the front mounted mower and figured out how to put on the snow blower. Very easy in fact. Just attach the lift belt and slip the mount onto the bar under the front as seen here:

It mounted very easily. If I had made something to prop it to the right height, I could have driven into it. The belt attaches easily.
Here it is, ready for a little snow.

The snow blower is very heavy. That lift belt motor really does a great job getting that blower off the ground. The blade turns well. Pretty quiet compared to my Ariens snow blower.

I'm holding off getting chains, as my driveway is small and flat. We'll see how long that lasts.

I did find that the rod to turn the chute was missing as well as the support rod for that piece. I have a rod from another blower, but of course it doesn't just fit right. I also need to find a support rod. I don't see a problem for use without it. Almost ready for snow.

I was able to take the E20 for a spin today. It started snowing here Friday night and has not stopped. I took three passes and my driveway was done. Plenty of juice left to do some neighbors. I took a video, but I'm too tired now to post the video and pics.

I snow blowed my neighbors, my dad's, my fiance's and then lastly mine again. I'm bushed.

I did pick up an electric toro from Craigs list today. I plan to use it for light duty. It performed superbly tonight.
