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.
19 inches of new snow to plow

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.
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.
