Not trying to rub it in James but it has really spoiled me. It didn't seem that warm in the cab yesterday as it was below 0 with the wind chill but I spent about 5 hours on the Sears helping out some of my elderly neighbors and I was staying warm; I transitioned to the 782 and couldn't feel my hands or feet in about a half hour. The cabs are well worth what they cost!

Here's a quick clip of the Sears in action...  (Tried to get a longer video but the girlfriend was getting too cold standing out there holding the camera :D  )

Well, we ended up with around 4 or 5 inches of the white stuff here last night.  The temperature stayed around 10f.all day, and the wind was blowing  last night and today.  Had some pretty good drifts.    I got my driveway cleared, 3 neighbors driveways cleared too, and the 4-way stop up the street (snow plow comes thru only on my street)  The Titan atv tires never slipped at all!   My sons and Joe's fiancee left their 3 cars on the street last night, and the snowplow went around them.....so I had them move their cars and took care of what the snow plow missed too.  Several hours of seat time!

A quick walk around of the Legacy and loader, with blade, after cleaning the drive for the second time.  Banks are already getting too big to push over the top, even when using the loader.

077.jpg 082.jpg 078.jpg Hello all,

new to this forum but I see a few friends and their Cubs. What I like reading about is the other makes/models on this forum...just too cool! I live in northern middle Tennessee on the TN/KY line and rarely get to work the snow. The 3 winters I worked for TDOT rarely did I drop the plow, mainly salt brine and salt broadcasting. But if we do get any this winter I am ready to climb in my 149. I fabricated a lift for the front blade so I can leave the box blade on the rear. Cab and canvas is in original condition...and is loud inside when buttoned up. I used a 82 series (or spread frame) hanger that has the float type lift bracket for the plow...just to protect the electric lift. Box blade is a replicated copy w/the rear scraper option and used 10 ga material, OEM was 13 ga. so it weighs in @ 110 lbs. Too many more upgrades to list but sure has earned it's keep among the many I have had in the past.

Bolens green is sooo much nicer than JD green. :thumbs:

Bolens green looks like dull worn out john deere paint. Just doesn't have the same shine

Little change in mine this year:  HPIM1374.JPG  I have a JD "80" 3-pt blade for it & hope to pick up a front blade that will adapt to it today.

 

Will still be using the 314 w/49 blower;  HPIM2923.JPG

 

And the 70 I w/blade:  HPIM2329.JPG

 

Loader on the 790 if needed:  HPIM1254.JPG

Got the 5' Ford blade to put on the 40S today!  HPIM1389.JPG  HPIM1388.JPG

 

It needs skid shoes & heavier trip springs, but the cutting edge looks barely used!  I'll have to make a mounting bracket & lift set-up.

Plow mounted to Arctic Cat Prowler and Ford 3000 with FEL... and a new shovel. After 12 years the old plastic one cracked. $30 for a snow shovel???? I hope this one lasts 12 years.

 

Sorry no GT pics, I sold most of them off to get the Prowler. Sometimes you just gotta get a bigger hammer.

I did the GT thing for 20 years. Its hard to beat 60hp/ 4wd/ 6ft blade. I have 3 retired neighbors and a single mother on my road. Sometimes I do a mile of road before the county gets around to doing it. That would be all day on a GT
