Glad I usually don't have to deal with that  down here in the south.  If we get 2" of snow, that's a biggie here in Atlanta and it's usually gone within a day or two.  Not sure I'd be tough enough to deal with that all winter long the way you do.

I'm never ready for winter, 80* here today and out riding in a T-shirt.  Even on top of Lookout mountain it was 77*.   You guys are a lot tougher then me.  I hope all goes well for everyone this winter.

I work for The Weather Channel.and we just might get cold down this way this year...I hope so,I have tired to kill the same bugs for 4 years now...I fear next spring they will be big enough to fight back.

Farmer's Almanac has been calling for a harsher winter than last years. I think I would rather be back in El Paso, TX than to take on another winter like last years. :wallbanging:

No it was well used, I gave it some TLC this summer , replacing the bearings and repainting the inside of the blower. It is a custom mix paint to a NOS EK sample I had which is why it looks new :D

I've always loved the looks of the Estate Keepers.

 

How does it do in wet snow?

 

 

 

I have to replace a couple of Tie Rod Ends on my snow handling machine.Always seem to come apart in the winter if they are worn a bit.Thinking up upgrading them all to those newer style ones with the grease Zerk.

They do pretty well but no matter what brand of blower you have none of them like wet snow :D

Here's a video from a few years ago of it in action

As Eric stated '' i'd rather be mowing''
