Is the blower 1 or 2 stage?  I have an older Power King with a single stage blower and I can't drive into a pile of snow like you can with a 2 stage.

It's a 2-stage Berco blower, 46" wide I think

And a John Deere quick attach thing on the front, between the blower and the tractor.

New question... My manual show the rear wheel hub with the flange-end facing outward. Currently it's mounted flange facing inward.  Can this go either way?

Pianoman. Did you happen to do an intern for pianos down in Atlanta last year?

Finally got around to making the wheel spacers. Ended up with .400" on the fronts, and .625" on the rears. Also finally got around to un-linking the rear brakes at the pedal and cross-shaft pin. The only grease fitting I haven't been able to reach and grease yet is the one in the u-joint at the engine rear output. Next on the list is extra lighting since most snowblowing happens in the dark. Also adding a small dash light will help to see the controls...

I restore high end pianos for a company in Atlanta. We had a guy come in from Maine for a ptg meeting. Just curious.

Sounds like a fun job!  (really!)  A friend of mine had a baby grand fully restored probably 10-12yrs ago now, looks gorgeous.  Can't remember the brand though.  Mine is just a Kawai E25 upright, nothing special, gloss black finish.  Would love to have my grandmother's old Wurlitzer though, love the sound.  And it plays a lot easier (has seen lots of use by her!)
