Getting snow today. If it accumulates enough I am going to get the 656 with the small snow blower out and give it a try. I just got this about a month ago.

Wheelhorse with Blade is great, not sure about a blower, never had one. Make sure to run engine fast or close and they say to go fast enough to get good feed into blower for best results.  Take pix and let us know.

Not so sure about that. The 6 plus inches we got was the sloppy wet stuff that plugs blowers and is so icy you need chains.
Just got in from pushing the worst off. Will have to go back out, move the cars and finish it off.
Caught a break, since the wind was from the east, I did not have a lot of bad drifting.

We might have got an inch.  Had rain first then kept switching back and forth.  Mother nature put it there and she can move it too.  Not going to mess with it.  Iowa City got close to a foot and have a home game.  Field is clean but the seating?  A whole different story there.  Nothing cleaned off as everyone was working the field and side lines.  Bring along a whisk broom and trash bag to sit on or plan on standing the whole game or have a wet behind.  I'll watch it on TV and then the Xfinity race from Homestead.

I am supposed to have a snow blade with it but Brother ( youngest Brother who isn't into GT's)  hasn't got it and delivered it yet.  I do have the chains and some weights I can put on it.

I notice you have wheels on the blower, did you put them there or is that the way they come?

Would make it easier to move around when off the tractor, good idea.

It came that way. I suppose from the factory.

The trouble I had with the WH and blower I had was steering. When the blower is up, you've got great weight on the front wheels. When it's down and your turning, your trying to drag it sideways.
