Over the last three days we got 19 " of snow. This photo shows me playing in it. Just light fluffy lake effect so it was easy to push around. :dancingbanana:

Here is the light duty snow bucket I built 7 years ago once the snow gets piling up. This machine is old and slow but it moves some snow and always starts right up.

I also have four push scoops and over the years I have replaced the cutting edges on three of them. This was me checking the depth of the snow yesterday .

Is that a Michigan Loader?

What a difference 30 miles makes Don. We have about 3" here. You can keep it all over there for all those great machines you have to move it.                  Roger

It's a old Waldon Loader, built like a tank. No Frills . I built the cab for it too . More snow again today , lake effect snow. Started shoveling the roofs first time , most people do not shovel the roofs but I always have. Here is another one of my plows I built. A V-plow with a side wing, ha,ha.

When my walk behind snowblower gearbox rusted from sitting several years, I tweaked it to a walk behind plow. It actually does a great job pushing snow 5" or less. These are the little shop projects I love the most.

That is cool ! We  used a V plow to hit the hard drifted snow banks when we lived down south.... well, down south to us, just north of the 49th. parallel . This was before the big rotary snow blowers were common. The V plow was mounted on the old J.D.  "R", no cab of course. A guy could drown inhaling fine snow crystals while working that outfit, lol.

I had a small snow removal business for 18 years. I loved plowing snow but the lowballing got real bad so I got out of it. My tractor would move a lot of snow in a short time. I had a 2 mile radius in Town and a regular route. I was very efficient and made good money.

This morning I shoveled another 1-1/2" in the driveway putting our new total for the last few days at 24". And more snow on the way. More snow on the way so in the next couple days I will get the little loader out and make a snowhill for my grandson. My loader has to sit outside so I built a tarp flipper to keep it covered up . It works great. All summer it is under the tarp too out of the weather. I built one for our motorhome a few weeks ago I liked it so much. :smilewink:
