Been sick, but went out to clear up snow from last night. Great it was light and fluffy!  Pushed front of house with the little JD and blade, nice to have back to that this year. Tried out the Plastic PK with big brush, and went OK, just not sure what I like??  Think my engine needs to run faster, but seems to be how it is linked and is all it is gonnna do. Kohler V-twin. Did some of yard for the dog and rear drive area. Even in float, seems to go up/down all over when tractor does. Have raised some to not rip out the grass, then it doesn't do that clean on pavement. Think I need more rear weight, had to drive forward thru pile couple times to get out of hilly areas. Light in back when brush raised. Darn 3pt goes down when brush up and hits ground, so not too cool. Finally took off the lift arms so not to hit. Then got out the best of them, Metal PK in my avatar with blade. It is cleanest clearing and easy to push the banks back. 24" ags OK, but no chains, so need to watch it in a dip or such. Again, drives forward thru the pile fine, not so good backing up hills to get out.  Was really nice sunny day, not much wind, and places plowed were melting and drying up real soon. Job well done!

Take care and don't go out to soon. I haven't been able to get outside to clear the drive since the snow fell three days ago. Glad you got some seat time. The brush seems like it would be fun to use. I could see a use for that all year round. Especially in the summer doing the thatching of the yard. Thanks.

I've always thought a brush would be nice, not sure what I'd use one for though.

I haven't pushed snow yet this winter :(, maybe we will get some sooner or later. However I don't really want the mess of the snow when it melts and also snow makes my job a heck of a lot harder, so maybe it's best that I haven't gotten any.

Single digit cold today and windy. Snowing tiny light flakes, almost like a white-out, yet not much acumm.  Looks like dusting at noon. High winds warning for area. Not sure if will be enough for another tractor work-out or not, will see. Maybe tommorrow it will be enough?

Thursday,nice sunny yet crispy -7 in AM. Got the Deere out to do front walk and some drive for Mama to get to work. Ran around back some and made couple paths to drive also. Real light and about 3 or 4" of stuff that blew over and filled in all the places I had cleared before. That's gonna be good for now, till the next snow. Dog has places to go also!

Ha! Went out later in afternoon and used brush again. One thing, that is wide and quick to move stuff. Had to do front drive as Mama didn't get up it (on hill) and had to clear more. I....Drove right up no problems, think it was just her! It has traction control, and unless you turn it off before trying to get up the drive, it won't let you accelerate or spin or nothing. I took it off AND used the manual shift 2nd gear all the way, was easy!

 

AND, now all night of blowing snow till AM again, so have to do it all over again tommorrow.

Glad you are feeling good enough to go out and play.
See if you can get Momma to take a pic of you running the brush. Those aren't as common.
