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.

I just saw a roper like yours that was listed here last night, really nice looking machines. His had a front bumper on it was that an option? I believe he was asking 2000 and I thought it was a little steep but I have not seen many for sale around here so I could be wrong. Anyhow good luck with your show!

You did a great job on the resto, it is a very nice looking tractor. Do you happen to know if they had a bumper as an option, the one I was looking at had a stout boxed in I beam looking bumper with slightly angled sides? Anyhow nice to see a Texas member, brings me back to when I was stationed at Corpus Christi. I was part of the search and rescue squadron there, also performed many funerals all over south Texas as an honor guard member.

Still have the plow on the tractor that gets the blower.  Blade stays on the H16XL year around.  Real nice looking Roper.  Have never seen one here in the Midwest but probably around.  No shows in this area that I have ever heard of.

I'm not sure about a bumper, but if a loader shows up I'll jump all over it.

Larry,,,,   Reminds me of the joke... A man from the U.P. got tired of blowing snow every day.. One day he had enough,  Told the wife that's it wer'e moving..  She asked ,Where we moving to.. He said I'll know when we get there.. So they packed up the station wagon and put the blower on the roof and south they went..After a few days of heading south they pulled into a gas station. A guy at the next pump asked what's that funny contraption on the roof..???   He yelled to his wife,, WE JUST FOUND HOME.............................

I don't think I'll even put my blower & cab on the 314 this year:  Pictures 2015 001.JPG

 

I'd much rather use the 1953- 40S & 5' blade for my snow removal:  Tractor Shows 2015 002 (4).JPG
