Yesterday we had about 6" of snow to move. I shovelled and plowed early because it was sunny and melting. The float on my Ford 2000 with FEL wasn't working so I went through my manuals to figure out how to fix it. 3 Ford 730 loader manuals but none showed this particular spool setup. Finally just attacked it. Just needed cleaning and 4 little pieces put where they belonged. By trial and error I was able to adjust it and now it works fine. It took 1.5 hours which a good description in a manual would have cut in half. The poor descriptions in the Ford service manuals really makes me appreciate the good ones like Briggs and Stratton puts out(in our Manuals Section).
Today we got 6"+ by 800am which then turned to sleet and freezing rain. It has settled to 4". I went out and cleanned the snow off the tent garage. It was sagging.
Even walking was hazardous. I am not going to plow or shovel until the storm ends this afternoon. If I clean now, the sleet and freezing rain will create a sheet of ice on the cleanned surfaces. By waiting, I'll get rid of the ice with the snow. Good Luck, Rick
