Started to move some snow away from the buildings yesterday. Got to warm and the chains on the big tractor started to tear the ground up to much. Not froze good under the snow. Thought I would wait till this morning and use the 1053 with the thrower to get it moved. It didn't get as cold as I hope last night. 30° this morning at 7am. I got the job done but that snow as real wet and heavy. Would not throw far at all and kept running out of power. Plugged the chute opening several times, usually when I started into a new run and had real light snow. I set the shoes to run flat about an inch below the leading edge of the thrower but still had problems running up over the snow. Had to hold the thrower down a lot of the time. Had to unplug it again so took a couple quick shots while it was sitting there. The snow was about 20" deep next to the building and tapered out to about 6" near the ditch where I want it. When snow is wet that is a heck of a load to try and move so not complaining about the loss of power. It worked great in the dry snow in the drive when it was 10°.
