We got 4 inches of heavy wet snow today in Gaylord and I could not resist trying out the mini 4x4 tractor. It worked great . My wife took some video also if anyone is interested you can stop by my webpage and click on the link . doncampbellmodels.com

That looks like a beast of tractor. Looks like it pushes snow with ease.

The neighbors are too busy complaining about Politics :bigrofl:
I put the transmission in low range this year with the 50 inch dia. tires and it is a perfect speed.
My mini loader quit today with the first bucket of snow :hitting_self_roller: So I tore apart the carb and ordered parts for it.
My walk behind snowblower carb had three pinhole leaks in the bowl so i ordered parts for it :help:

No not snow yet! The way you where bundled up it must have been cold also!!

 

Maybe since the mini loader and snowblower are broken you could combine them to be a mini loadablower??  :D

My wife says I have more fun working on this stuff than i do actually using it . loadablowa for sure :thumbs: I still have backup if the 9630 quits tomorrow , I have the jd 455 with the brand new 2 stage snowblower :dancingbanana:

If that quits I still have the blade for my truck that I have not used in 4 years so it probably won't work either :wallbanging:

Then we'll just head to Florida :rocker2:

We only got 2 more inches of snow overnight but I still may need to get the blade tractor out so no-one slips and falls in the driveway :bigrofl:   Some things you just have to do even if you don't want too ??

I saw a JD once that I thought I'd like to own...that count has now officially doubled!  Fantastic machine!  Next time I'm north, I'm shooting you a message first!

 

 

Then we'll just head to Florida :rocker2:

 

 

You know, that 4x4 would probably do great, pulling a drag to clean the beach sand in Daytona, Miami Beach, or..........

My wife says if I take any tractors she will be dragging me down the beach :shoot2:

 I found several old wasp nests in the Waldon air intake today , there is my air flow problem. But the carb was in need of a cleaning too.

I am so glad I stopped model building for a year and got to experience the joy of garden tractors. It has been so much fun. :wave:

Sorry I don't spend much time on websites but thanks again everyone for all the kind responses. Just thought it would be fun to share my projects here. Thanks again !!
