I can't say the Minneapolis Moline is ready for snow since it doesn't run and the blower isn't fully mounted but here it is anyway..

I saw this little Speedex for sale last summer. Looked like it would make a fun little plow tractor.

I know this is a little big for gttalk, but my 1957 Farmall 230 is the winter workhorse.

We've had a few decent snow storms this season, today got the first "action" photo

DSCN2204.JPG  

This was after I cleaned up 10" of wet heavy stuff, when the town plow went by.  So I am cleaning up around a foot of road-kill type stuff.

 

I know it's been snowing elsewhere, anybody else have snow removal pics?

Still waiting for the big one. Here's a picture with the Ford 195 LGT moving a ~18" drift.

Looks like a lot of weight in back.  tho it hurts my neck just thinking about blowing snow in reverse...

 

Is that a hydraulic v-plow on the front?

Here is a pic "the morning after" final cleanup with the plow tractor.  down pressure is nice for scraping the tar, we haven't had much ice buildup since i got it going

My 2 snow tractors work so well i sold my plow truck last month and don't miss it.

Ready for the next dump.

No, its not a hydraulic vee plow, although I would love to have wings that fold out and in. Up here, it is rare to have to blow, so for my set-up it makes sense. In the last three years, I have only had to run the blower twice. Most other times, two pushes per snow works for me.
