:bigrofl: 

Good to hear it was a successful first run. :thumbs:
I agree, they do make the rear end light. Really noticeable when there's a little hill to back up.

 

That's the problem, backing up really easy to spin the tires.

 

You think Stella would help?  :bigrofl:  :bigrofl:  :bigrofl:  "inside joke"

Glad your happy Doug. I have a set of weights to piggy back yours. Lol.

Today I got to try it again, this time with some extra rear weight and a working shoot rotator.

We didn't get a lot of snow but I had some fun with it.

Found that in the deeper snow it sure does load down the engine.

snow thrower is 36" wide, just wider than the tractor.

It does bog the engine, doesn't it?
But watching Ryan convinced me that slow is better than shoveling.

Having a blower changes how you deal with snow.
Instead of pushing it WAY back to make room, you throw it over there and wait for more.

Watching yours, doesn't sound to labored. Sounds quite good, actually
