Unfortunately, I have no snow gear for the diesel. Thinned things outba LOT, and have no RBT blades or blowers. I do have 5 machines on snow-rotation this winter though, which is plenty.

The 7790 is actually slated for a power steering upgrade as soon as I carve out time. I have all the parts....

Is say 5 machines will handle the job. Which one is your favorite for snow removal?

Can't wait to see the pwr steering upgrade. Will you do a pictorial thread on here or Simple Tractors for me to follow?

Tried to video some plowing with the B-110 tonite, but only had enough battery for a minute or so. They say another 4" overnight and boy oh boy was it coming down.

I'm thinking you'll need a toddler mount for that camera.  Now that would be a different perspective. :D

Oh, I plan on it!  The head mount fits like a torso harness on my little guy!  I'd also like to use my clamp mount, and get some clips from the front of the tractor facing back toward the driver's seat, while he sits on my knee and rides along.  His facial expressions are priceless on tractor rides :thumbs:

Great videos, thanks for sharing :thumbs:

Question regarding the sweepster. That is stationary, sweeps one way, correct? Or does it move right and left?  Suppose it get's pretty wet out when the wind is blowing in the wrong direction. Can't be as bad as a snow thrower though? 

The head cam with the push blade is a cool view :rocker2:

Yup, this unit has a fixed, 30 degree angle.  It doesn't kick snow nearly as high into the air as a blower, so even though you can catch a little dust now and again, I've never become a snowman using the broom, even on a windy day.  Here's a different view of using the broom.  I side mounted the cam on the armrest.

What is that piece moving up and down under the light? Is that the tensioner?

Neat vid that shows the machine in operation.

The piece doing all the jigglin' there under the light is the engagement rod.  I need to bush it, so it's not so floppetty.  The lift cable runs below that but you can't really see it, and the chain for tension is on the other side of the hitch.

I hate it when you get all technical, I can't follow along. Goes right over me head, it does.

Getting tired of the ice on the drive....looking forward to it melting off today and tomorrow. Makes plowing a real PITA.

That is a really nice setup there Mrgreen! If it were me, especially since you can't angle the blade attached to the loader arms, I'd make some short side panels for the blade. Possibly just pin on so they'd be easy to remove if need be. Make it like a mini version of the snow pusher box blades they put on end loaders and skid steers so you wouldn't have snow trails to chase around...
