Wow, I wish we'd get some real snow around here.

Your bucket might have a changeable edge on it. If so, you'd have to worry about wear a lot less. You can always attach such an edge too. If you know somebody with a welder, you can generally get metal repaired for the cost of materials and some beer. I'm not sure what welders charge, but I assume you can always pay somebody too. Just don't let it get too far. I doubt you'll wear anything out very quickly with occasional use though.

The sound is another matter. My solution to such things is to put the Supersuckers or maybe Hayes Carll or Corb Lund on the Ipod and turn it up really loud. That also works for mother in-laws, mothers, and highly partisan members of whichever political party you oppose.

I haven't used a Kubota to plow snow, and I'm just learning on my little JD (I keep digging for a clutch that isn't there), but I have used a variety of farm tractors from the sixties and seventies. The Kubota has got to be easier to run than a round-fendered Case or a '66 Deutz. A blade is better, but a loader is quite workable. I just keep the front edge of the bucket curled up a bit and make piles. If the piles are in the way, move them later.

It'll do it alright. I keep thinking I should get an orange one to set off the green ones. I'm not much for decorating, but I saw some woman on TV say that contrasting strong colours was a good idea.

You will certainly be the most popular fellow on your block. Last year when I was in Charlotte,NC after a rare snow storm I was surprised when one of the local drivers said that his new neighbor who had moved down from up north cleared his driveway with a snowblower. The fellow said that he had never seen one used before. Unfortunately his new neighbor didn't offer to clean his driveway.
