Man, I really feel for those that have to remove the mower deck, and install the snow blower about this time of year. It took me 6 hours, mainly to locate the hardware I stashed after removing last year.
The bummer is I only need the blower for a 2 day show once a year, and a snow ball chance in hades that I'll ever have the fun in using it. I still need to clean it up from storage. Everything is hooked up except for the belt (safety reasons). It is a eye grabber at the Central Texas Show.
