Looks like you may be ready for the white stuff like you mentioned. the cab will keep some of the wind off of you. You know we will be waiting for the pictures once is over and you get the new pan on it.

Looks like you're ready. Are you expecting snow soon? It looks like the grass is still green at your place!

Last weekend I spent 6 hours pushing snow on my driveway and the neighbours .   6 inches of heavy wet stuff.  My 425 john deere worked hard.  Its chained up with the diff lock it works great.  The hydralics are a treat.  I broke a hydraulic fitting had to fire up the 1050 Bolen to finnish up.  It works great as well just a bit slower and the manual blade lift and angle etc make it more work for me.  I can always count on it to start when its cold.  Way better than the jD.

Another 6 inches last night and this morning.  Did my driveway with the 425 with blade.  Then I went and dug out my snow caster put it on the my new 1050 Bolens did the neighbours for her.  They do a nice clean job compared to a blade.  I'm pleased with the new 1050.  It works good

That will be nice this winter. I am going to be getting the blade on the ST16 tomorrow and the blower and 1/2 cab on the SS12 as soon as I'm able.
