Definitely a job for a large frame, I suspect the 1000 would struggle to push so much heavy snow. Looks like your shelter is struggling with the weight of the snow!

Glad you got some seat time.

I've had my 782 Cub Cadet sitting at the door,... blade ,... weights.,... chains,... battery tender. All ready to go to work. We haven't had enough accumulation to get it out.  Kind of a mixed blessing.      Rick

Thanks for sharing - looks like you got your fair share.  Fun to get to play in it if everything works right and it is not too cold.

That looks like fun.

 

All I got to plow today was a bunch of slush and ice.We got 3 inches of very wet junk that stuck to everything and rain,then it froze hard enough for me to walk on top of the snow.Last snow we got down this way was that big storm that dropped 31 inches.

 

Strange season this one it turning out to be.

I am glad that we didn't get that 18" here. As a native of Maine, I have had enough snow to last me for a lifetime. Supposed to be in the high 50's here by Friday. Come on, Spring!! I like my seat time when the weather is warm.

Nice tractor. It would be even. better if you had talked someone else into operating it for you. Is that the original seat? My 1250 came with a seat that looks like that. Have fun. Good Luck, Rick

Looks like you got some excellent seat time in there! Thanks for the pics. I'll bet that was a lot of fun!

 

I was crossing my fingers for snow this year but it doesn't look like we're going to get anything down low.

That would be the proper seat for the model 2087 HT20.

 

The model 2086 HT20 had a different seat.

That is the original FMC logo'd 2087 seat, it was a broken bolstered unit I posted about a while back.It was originally purchased by the Indiana State corrections department and still wears the ID tag on the fender pan.


Gotta also give a special Thanks to WrenchinOnIt,his machine,he asked about storing it at my place but said I better put it work when needed,with the front weights and power steering a very good combination

.

Glad it answered the bell when asked. It will remain with you as long as you need it, of course if future winters are like the previous two , I suspect Florida will get a new winter resident and I'll get a COUPLE 20's then. I'd rather have you in Pulaski, but I'll be happy for you if you decide to "snowbird" it because I know that's what you want to do. Thanks for the pics.

Looks like a lot of fun. I have been wishing for some good snow falls, usually we get a good 12 to 20" dump a couple times a month off Georgian Bay, though this yeah we have only gotten a few good ones and several small snow falls. Fingers are still crossed for some good accumulation. I love my winters!
