Threw the front AG's on the plow machine tonite...it will wear front weights as well. Those reversed AG's and weights make for excellent steering control on snow and ice. Firgured I'd snap a pic of each of the machines that have been prepped so far...

I don't like you :poke: :rolling: :D

Those are some beautiful machines, I so need to rebuild the Briggs in my HB212.


I finished prepping tonight for tomorrows white death a comin'. I'll be plowing my drive and two neighbors if my son doesn't beat me to it, then haul to my mom's do hers and probably her neighbor's then haul to church and clean there. Planning on a busy Friday night/Saturday.

Got headlights installed, finished up back blade tonight, replaced a wheel weight, and put front blade back on

CVANS, I know what the tractor is, but what is the grill, hood and cab off of?

The hood and grill are off of a Ford garden tractor. The cab was something else I bought used and I'm not sure who made it or what it was originally made for. The guy had it on a later model Cub Cadet Seems to fit most anything. He bought it used also.
That's about all I can tell you.

Hard to tell from the angle of the pic, but I think that Homelite T16's snowblower pulley looks too big. If it's a 7", too big. Throw a 6" pulley on there and launch that snow!

I'm not impressed! Everyone knows Canadiennes all wear wild animal furs and walrus bone snow goggles. They're immune to cold.

True it was cold.

 

I spent it in the shop.

 

The wife can cozy up with whatever she wants,

You learn to live with it.

 

Its the heat that gets me.

You can always dress for the cold, but you can only get naked to fight the neat, and no one wants to see my bleached bloated carcass running around

I figured cuddling up to the wife by the fire, isn't so bad.  

 

You are so right about the heat. There's just something about a chubby bald guy without a shirt.
