I thought it was going to be a wasted day due to the heavy snow that caused me to not get done what I really wanted to do,so after plowing I put my custom 10 in the garage to go over it a little and found a few things that needed attention. Last year I hit something with the plow and done some damage which I thought I had repaired but after replacing the broken bolt I found the plow would not go all the way to the right,got that fixed and then I had to heat up the bolts to the skids so I could move them down a little and went over the plow and tightened all the bolts.  While it was in a warm garage it was time to install the tire chains so I managed to spend 3 hours working on it and now with the chains on I hope it does not snow any more as I am tired of this winter.

The chains will help with traction and I hope they cause Mother Nature to quit it with the white stuff.

Glad you got the little repairs and tweaks done, good use of the day.

I too was hoping my snow ready GT would be cheap insurance against the snow. It seemed to work up until this past Monday when we got 6+ inches...Guess Mother nature didn't get the memo!!

I adjusted the skids on the plow but they moved so I will have to look into what I can do.
