I finally decided to take a break from work today and get ready for winter.

Put the chains and blower on the Bolens ht20, Wow is that blower heavy !!

I had bought a cab from a Case 444 and it looks like it will fit the Bolens pretty good Need to drill a couple of holes and it will be good to go.

I put an old blower and chains on the Case 220 today I am thinking about taking up to my Dad's house (He's 99 years old and still thinks he should shovel snow)

It's a toss up as I just picked up a Wheel Horse C111 that was to goto Dad's house If I blow snow then the Case is my pick because the Hydrive would be handier for me to use. The Case is a beater tractor but works well yet.

I would love to see how the rest of you are handling snow this year, Personally have never been this far behind in getting ready for winter.

We had one little 4" drop 4 weeks ago, nothing since. This thing is scaring all the snow away!

Dang, winter started October 4th and 5th here!--LOL! We had 31 inches out here in the flatter land with 60 mph wind and up in the Black Hills well over 4 feet. Got 4-1/2 inches of rain within 2 weeks of that then just an inch or two of snow a few times since. Gonna be below zero at night next week--------Sorry the tractor isn't a Bolens---My bad!

Yup the MF 12H has been ready for over a month with the snowblower and the Cub 107 has been ready for about two weeks with the snowblower.  Now all I need is snow but I am in no hurry as I will be at work plowing any of that stuff before I get to my own.

Weve had two major winter storms here in Alberta already, and have a blizzard warning right now, only a little skiff so far tho.

 

but I was ready for it except for the Bolens RaM needing new rear tires, just got them saturday and Im in the middle of repainting the wheels before the go back on, I push most of the snow with a Columbia and a 54" blade and have a small walk behind Toro blower so not really hurtin me too badly not having the RaM ready just yet but I am anxious to see how the new ags are gonna do.
