Hi all, well today I decided that spring is most likely here, so I removed the drawbar wts and chains from PK2 and the cabs and snowblowers off the GT5000 and G16 Suburban, am hedging just a bit for a week or so by leaving the chains and plow blade on PK1. If it does snow from now on the blowers would be useless an the plow blade also unless its used on the hard surface areas. Did get PK2 out with the belly blade and did so blading to get rid of some ruts and that worked good.

Took my blade off about two weeks ago or so and took the chains off last night.  Anything that falls now can sit there until it melts.

  Put the blower away and took the plow off the wheeler. I'm probably tempting mother nature, LOL!!

L-Dad, hope will be good driving tomorrow!  Can't be anything bad really, right?  Warm and rain here in IN, just about same lattitude!

The snow is fizzling out. While I'm watching the weatherman show us a map that says I'm in the middle of a snow storm, I look out and it stopped. It's not warm, though.

Still plently of rain here but glad that we're on the downhill stretch now to spring. I'm really glad we're finally back on Daylight Savings, though. Makes a huge difference in a many ways. :thumbs:

Good Morning all, looking good here in MN, sunny no snow for us out in the WC part of MN, this coming week looks to be somewhat warmer so maybe the tractors can go out and play :dancingbanana: Did have PK2 out with the mid mt grader and cleaned up some ruts and bladed the road around the shop it worked good. I'm going to use one of the extra hydraulic lift cylinder on the pull behind tiller so it can be used with the PK and the remote hydraulics rather then the electric actuator.
