We started getting the GT-19 ready for winter this weekend. Got some new wheel weights for the old girl and also picked up some cat.0 pins for the weight box and modified it to fit on the three point hitch.

Mine are done. Nice looking tractor. Are you putting a plow or blower on it.

We have three plow blades and two blowers so depending on how much each storm brings. We will put the plow blade on for now because Luc has some dirt to spread at his new house then going to put the blower on when the big storms hit!

I'm thinking our third plow blade might be going on the kubota this year. Any thoughts on mounting the plow blade to the FEL arms?

Dad just came back from the swap meets down in Thompson Connecticut and brought back some spare rims and tires, a real nice set of steel wheel weights, lift cylinder to make my plow blade hydraulic angle and a real nice ariens plow blade! (Blade #3)

So now the plan is to get another valve and get the hydraulic cylinder mounted on my blade.

That's a phrase you don't hear too often!  :D

 

BTW...That's a nice setup you have there Gillis.jim.  I need to get ready for winter myself.  I've been busy with other projects.  I'm also enjoying the warm weather in southern Ohio while I can!

Here in south eastern PA we most years we don't get a whole lot. Kind of enjoyable seat time. One year We had 9 plowable snows in 3 weeks. That burned me out.😏

On mine it's currently 1 step forward and 3 back. Then there's the S16h that I picked up a couple days after the run to Ohio for the parts one. I may wind up with the plow on the NH for this snow season as that's the only one running at the moment. I have to get the engine back together in the Durango before I can mess with any more GT stuff. That one is quite tired after 260K miles....

This one belongs to my brother in law. I have a S-16 H as well. I actually enjoy plowing and blowing the snow in the winter months haha. Two winters ago we got 450cm (177 inches) of snow! I'm hoping for more this winter! ;)

You can have all the snow you want if it means that we get less than we otherwise would have.

nope,  didn't mind it quite as much before 4-5 years ago, I was able to deal with it better. But now a days, temps cold enuf for snow means that if I spend much time out there at all, my pinky and next finger to it on my left hand go completely numb until I get inside, in to the warmth.  other than that I have always seemed to take the cold better than most around here, rarely needing much more than a quilted flannel shirt  until it got down into single digit temps.
