Last night we got 4" of snow, they forecasted up to 10" 

I had all 3 snow blowers running using then for the last time this season I hope.

1st time I tried the MF16 with a snow blower.

1st time I tried the MF12 that I repowered with a snow blower.

and 3rd time I've used the EGT 200 with a snow blower.

 

They all performed about the same and threw the snow about 15ft today.

Boy Doug, You are a real optimist. I've learned by hard experience that it ain't over here until the 3rd week of May.

I know what happened! 

 

Hamman stole your snow and has it over in Michigan! 

You tell him to give it back or he gets 2 points!!

The weather guessers here are forecasting 71* for next Tuesday's high. We are lacking percipitation but I sure am enjoying the lack of cold weather. Good Luck, Rick

That's quite the arsenal, Doug! Glad you haven't been 'snowed under' to get them going!

Lots of winter left yet, maybe. Don't forget the St Patricks day storm, Doug.

I can`t believe you guys only got 4". We got about 18", drifted in to almost waist deep at one spot between the house and the barn. It is supposed to be brutally cold tomorrow, but next week is supposed to be well above freezing. This has been one strange winter, today was probably about the 5th time I had to blow snow all winter.

I was hoping for a ft of snow so I could give all these snow blowers a real test.

I am about an hour and a half north of you, straight up the 400. You are welcome to bring them up and try them if we get another storm. I have an Ariens walk behind I bought brand new last winter and it got a workout today.

It was almost 10c 50f here all day yesterday and we had about an inch or more of rain and high winds. This morning it's -6C 21f with snow flurries in the air. No snow left here at all now. Possibly more on the weekend though, with a Nor easter heading our way.
