Looks good. Does a real nice job.
Sounds like your video crew was having fun too.


Ya, I got the twins some used itouch 4's for their birthday, unexpected result I now have a camera man or um " camera person" , lol

I've owned a few throwers on lawn tractors, the 318 is tops so far, followed by a Bolens h14 with the newer style blower. Neither one of those tractors could be stalled out by load. The advantage the 318 over the bolens is the power steering, can move around so much easier. But the Bolens had the rear locker, which I find better than the Deere. I dunno , wish I could keep all the gt's.

On a side note, my father in-law got the Deere at auction for me. He knew i wanted one, then like it so much we found him a 322. We lost him in July to a heart failure, so the 318 serves as a reminder to my family of him.

Anyway hope you like the video.

I found a front mounted blade for my John Deere 140.

And I found a spot to hang the suitcase weights for some added weight in the back too...I don't know it I will need it, but it is a great option....

Love this topic. I see one other panzer in here...  an even older copar model and pretty too.  IT will do well with the chains on, no doubt.  I see these guys with the cabs and am envious.  Is not that I'm a wuss and get cold but we get a lot of wind right on this hillside and I get a lot of snow put down my shirt when the wind blows the wrong way.  Having a 2 stage just seems to make that problem worse.  BTW, do you think this could possibly be the only panzer with a 2 stage snowblower... Hmmmm..  One of the reasons why I adapted instead of getting a stock one.  Wanted to be able to send the snow across my 20 foot pad. I did get a chance to test out the rear blade. It works good. It's really back there to counterweight the snowblower, but It will push the slushy stuff if needed.

I like the way you put on the rear weights.  Easy on and off. Nice

You do know they made cabs for Panzers?

Someone posted a CL ad for a really nice original one not too long ago.

What, what, what???

They made a cab... or was it just a universal one?  I certainly don't want one bad enough to build one or pay the money just to put one of the plain box ones on... and I'd still have a ton of adaptation work to get one on there.
