For the first time this year I finally got a decent amount of snow. We got around 6 inches which was enough to justify using a tractor. So I decided to use the biggest tractor I have, my IH 504, it was slightly overkill but fun nonetheless. The front of my brothers truck looked like a great place to pile all of the snow too lol. I also added a few other pictures I took today.

I'd rather his snow than the 13 hours I spent moving it starting at 3am this morning.  Gotta start again at 5am to clean up what happens overnight tonight.

Matt, surprised you got hat much more than us. Maybe 3 inches over last 4 days.
Hard to justify running the blower

Nice cleanup you did and if Ray complains, next time put it IN his truck. :rolling:

I like that 504.  I'll bet it's fairly manuverable for plowing snow.  Nice machine.

 Its a good tractor and is nice for tight spots. On flat ground it was able to move the snow with no problem. I need a set of chains for it to be able to climb a hill though. Brakes would be nice to have too lol.

I put a lot of work into my 1855 to get it ready for snow.. and I'm still waiting.... LOL.  I did fire it up the other day, first thing it did was snap a shear bolt.  Glad it did it before I really need it.

Looks like you had some fun with that 504. I'll be out moving snow  later today. We're getting hit right now with that big storm that came up the east coast. It started at about 6:30 this morning. 8-12" are forecast.
