Got Ed out yesterday and did some blowing of the drive and back yard. No current pictures of doing that but he performed great. I always grease him and prepare him for winter early. This year I nearly forgot due to being really busy. For a single stage blower I am still really impressed as to what he will do. I really need to consider making a cab for him. I always get to blowing the drive and then the wind picks up and I get covered. No matter how hard I try to keep the wind away from me I get covered at least once.

This was Ed and I a couple of years ago, he still looks and runs as good as then, me I'm not so sure. snow blowing 2011 008.JPG Thanks. Roger.

Ed looks great.  A cab makes a world of difference.  Even eye goggles and a face mask make a big difference.

Ed Jacobsen looks like a nice tractor. Like Dave said, goggles and a face mask will reduce the pain considerably. I got plastered in snow the other day using my walk behind in a brisk Northeasterly wind.

I have to be careful because of my finger so it doesn't freeze on me. I use a warm hat and gloves but I feel so constricted in my insulated suit. I am going to get a mask and ski goggles as you suggested. I will see how it goes next time. Thanks guys. Roger.
