I don't know what it is that makes us want to not only take a video of us plowing snow, but then to put it on the net fo others who really DO want watch it. So, in honor of Doug putting up some video's yesterday, I bribed one of my son's to take a video when I made a pass out to the wood-pile. Too bad his hands were shaking more than a heroin addict in detox! There are a couple nice close up's at the end though! That was only about 8" of snow with the blade straight. I can tell a HUGE difference with the weight box. I can now climb up a snow bank until the rear tires start to loose traction in the snow bank itself. Very cool!

Thanks guys, I know the video stinks, but still.... You may be in luck for a good video soon, it looks like we have another big hitter on the way. They are saying maybe 10-17 inches so we shall see if I can get a good video up with this storm. One of these days I hope we get a big snow fall so I can really giver her a run for the money!

You are thinking like me now Alex! After today, I think I need still more! Because the box has not been painted yet, I have decided that I am going to add onto the box. To keep the trailer hitch, I think I will come down the back about 8" and then bevel the added metal to the old back of the box. I am thinking I may add 1.5" to 2" off the back. That may just push it to 300lbs. For the front, I am going to look into building a small box frame filled with lead that will bolt under the frame and in front of the axle. Depending on how much room I have, I think the 50lb range can be had.

Today we got a pretty good storm and she had a work out. I went to bed about midnight and it was not snowing yet. Come 9am, we had 18" on the ground. I am working on video's but this was to much for me to push the length of the drive. I had to keep making sweeping bites out of the driveway. When done, the banks were higher than the tractor on both sides! HOWEVER... she pushed it all and never got stuck! All the snow is right where I wanted it too.

The best part is that it's still snowing like mad and another 2 or 3 inches and my24" garden fence is gone!

Whoa, that's a lot of snow! Mine could not come near that yet. I need 2 link chains and the weight first. My fat front tires were sliding sideways so the 50 lbs you want to add to the front of yours just might help do it for mine too.

You think you could cut down another set of rims for tri ribs?
