If he gets one of these, he'll have a hand to steer with!

He'll need 2 of them, unless he turns his front yard into a circular

driveway. He will have to back up.

You've been busy Alan.
Glad you got it fixed. Wind is switching to North.
That means lake affect for you, right?
Can't wait to see the snow blowing video. Camera in one
hand, flashlight in the other, and steering with your knees.


Knees, heck. I am working on something much more impressive...

Saturday, it was negative numbers cold, today, it was 33.
The snow was fluffy in places and a little wet in others.
This thing didnt care much.

No sudden changes in speed, no wild guesses as to how far to move the handle, no sudden loss of forward.
The twisting feeling is gone.

So far, so good.

It really puts it out there. KK was standing off to one side, I told her to stay way back but you know kids... I stated cranking the handle... Chased her most of the way to the house. Was worth the cleanup where I had already blown the snow. :D
I'm still not convinced on the wings on the front. They make the job easier in that its wide enough to give the tractor breathing room, but three times, I had it grab into the snow bank on the one side or the other and start to take me places I didnt want to go.
Probably only because it was crusty or wet, but still...

I recall a video last year, or maybe from the year before, where Ryan took the time

to show you how it's done properly. This must be frustrating for him.

Read that to Mom as she was driving. She got a big old laugh out of it. She said "Thanks Will"

I can only imagine what she's gone through.

Remind me to remind you about mothers day. :smilewink:  :poke:
