In case you were curious about what a can of WE 40 looks like after running through your 4 foot Case 444 snowcaster, here you go:

What has your snow blower picked up and tossed (other than snow) this season?

My snowblower hasn't even tossed any snow yet this year......or last year for that matter. Sure wouldn't make me mad if I didn't have to use it at all again this year.

Just snow this year so far. Last year I got 20 feet out of a small plastic squirt gun.

Well consider that WD as lube for the shoot. Heck, doing it that way ensures all the vital internal components get some form of lube!

Now that's some half glass full type of thinking.

If you wanted that stem to stay in the tip, it never would. Throw it through the blower and it stays.

I saw on the news this morning where 2 kids got packed in a snow bank by a snow plow. Cant remember where it was. 

 

My wife's dad ran a snow plow for the county back in the 70's. We had a big snow, school was shut down for a week and my wife and her brother were getting on their mom's last nerve and she ordered them out of the house. They decided they would build a snow cave in the big drifts out by the road. Everyone got an asswippin when he got home 3 days later

That's the first thing I thought, too.  Isn't that the truth?

Hey is WE40 an improved version of WD?   You know that just dries up and the lube washes off with water when snow melts on it. SO, no improvement done here!  Ha!

Yeah, but have you ever tried WE40. It sticks great. It's what came after WD40. Ha, didn't even catch that, gl, thanks for pointing that out.

You guys sure have had a ton of seat time up in your parts. Here's to hoping it was your one and only big one....ok, so at least I can hope.
