I didn't say it didn't do it, I said it worked it hard. As in a little oversized plus four times every weekend and almost every evening.
The OEM sears blowers use a little more power than a Haban design.

Don't want to work the engine to hard. She's a good runner and I use it to plow with too. Both front and back.

Those sears sure can be workers! im looking for the rigth size blower for my 637 any one know where i could get one?

My Simplicity self propeled snowblower is ready!, Serviced it last spring before putting it

up for the summer, gas it up and I'm ready to go. Did the same for lawn mowers before

putting them away for the winter, there's no procrastination here.

Giving the wife refresher course on operating blowers. I always parked snowblower in garage during winter. Easier starts and now with tractor. It's worth the time it takes to move them in/out temporarily. Starter in blower broke couple years ago trying to start outside when temps dropped unexpectedly to -40 ,, never again

My neighbours wife offered her husband to keep my driveway clear this winter while I'm recovering.  He says my wife is too busy to be ploughing snow.. Wife told me last week of the generous offer,,chatted with him today and I know he does not mind the seat time!

I changed the oil on the Sears SS-16 tractor; lubed the tractor and snow thrower; then installed the snow thrower, chains, wheel weights and rear weights on the tractor. I also changed the oil and lubed the backup standalone snow blower. My next door neighbor just got a brand new snow blower - so it probably won't snow here in southern RI until mid January.

 

Stay warm!

Last summer i picked up a cab and blower for the Case.   Rebuilt the cab in summer and the blower this fall.  With the extended fall i got some new front tires mounted.  This weekend i added a snow shield, today i pulled the back wheel, had a slow leak, still at the tire shop.  I think that's the last thing i need to do for winter.  hope so anyway

I'm more or less ready, cab on, blower on, even modified the shutes deflector control to be inside the cab. Only thing I really want to do is enclose the back of the cab, cause the wind blows here bad, and can blow up my skirt from the back and snow down my back side brrrrr..... I wonder if my sewing machine will sew 40gage vinyl ? A few zippers and it might even hold heat?
If it were not raining I would take some pics.......

Done nothing, Sears still has mowing deck. I may need to cut again before snow, bunch of rain and temps in mid 60's for the next week.
Oops, I correct myself, I did re-weld my winch mount for snow blade since I cracked welds.

A guy i know gave me a piece of plexiglass fits in the back window opening.  I made a new front skirt out of marine vinyl, not sure of the thickness but it pop riveted real nice to the frame.  i don't have doors but have heard they get real toasty inside if you seal them up, good luck
