Thanks for the video Brian. We have the cold temps around here but lack of snow. Use to watch the guys with snowmobiles load up and head north so they could play, may soon have to do the same with a couple of our tractors. Enjoy your seat time.

That was my Bolens originally with the Blower on it, but I had to switch over due to a Break down on the 900. I was cleaning up the driveway when a loud screeching sound started. I shut off the engine and find the rope from the recoil all tangled up. Looks like the spring broke :wallbanging:
I'm going tomorrow to see if they have a replacement recoil assembly. (you cant blame the Bolens for breaking down. That engine is not original )

Yeah it was quite the task lifting the plow, holding the camera and shifting gears while trying to steer :D LOL

Great show Brian! I also liked the Ad at the end. Is there a place when you sign up that asks where you heard about GTT? I can't remember. We may have an influx of new members that say they heard about us on YouTube LOL!

I have an acquaintance who works as a professional camera operator. The last time I saw him he had a little camera hooked on to a miniature steady-cam unit mounted on his head. He filmed a whole party like that. It was a "Mike's eye view" of the whole event. Very cool. It would be the perfect unit for shooting video of tractor operation, since it frees up your hands and smooths out the bumps.

Of course I'm sure the price of such a thing is very high, but the way you guys build things....
