It turned out to be about 20 cm of water laden snow. So I did not even think about taking mf14 out with plow. It would be useless. So I took out the lgt165 with blower. Motor was done this spring and the blower had some work done to it. No upgrades just fixing things on the blower. Worked great. That wet snow was moving like it was not wet snow, no brake down. Yahoo, for now. Noel.

We ended up with 14" heavy wet snow. Lost power again. It was really difficult to move. Surprisingly the 1886 with blower did better than the ht20 with plow. After clearing a path to the poll for the generator I sent my son out to start the generator and plug it in. The generator ran for about 20 minutes before it quit. When I went out to take a look I found it siezed. Unfortunately my son didn't check the oil before he started it.

That's the wrong time to see that happen!  What a bummer.  Didn't it have a low oil shutdown in place?

Sorry to hear that. Well, at least it's Black Friday and there should be lots of deals around on a new generator.
