That's cool, I wish we got enough snow to justify having a blower.

Looks like fun! :thumbs:

 

Nothing like looking over the hood of a large frame while moving snow.

Jerome, How much snow have you tackled with the 1250? They commonly say the 1250 is under powered for a large frame.... So does it handle a large snowfall well?? I have a 1250 but no snow removal attachments for the LF tractors. I was wondering if it be worth the money and trouble to chase down a plow or blower for the 1250 because I have a few other options for snow removal already in my line up. With this cold snap were having and snow consistently falling and forecasted I'm thinking I better be more prepared than I was this year! If my subcompact goes down for any reason I'd be screwed! I could just hear my wife now If I had a break down and I couldn't clean the driveway out when I own 15+ tractors! LOL. We've been spoiled I guess the last several years with mild winters and minimal snow fall so now winter is here, and I think its trying to make up for all we've missed out on!  I really want to setup one tractor with a plow for minimal snowfall situations, and another with a blower incase the subcompact goes down... I have several tube frame plows and a blower. I have my 1256 with the 18hp briggs twin swapped into it that maybe good for a blower or plow, but as you know the blower is only single stage which worries me with the heavy wet crap we get a lot, and are the tube frames heavy enough to push 6" of the wet crap good enough??  I also have a 1700 and 1900 and a 2 stage and a single stage for them, so I'm thinking the 2 stage on one of them would be a better option. Maybe the 1250 would be the best setup with a plow?? All I know is next year I need to be more prepared! LOL!

I had a MF 1600 with a single stage snow blower that handled a lot of storms for me - I now use an 89 GMC K2500 with a 1995 7 1/2 ft Fisher plow for driveways and  one of the 3 Ariens snow blowers for sidewalks - the MF with the thrower made life easier in terms of putting the snow someplace other than the driveway - I'd go for the snow thrower.....

It dont like wet snow as it clogs a lot and it dont like packed snow that is real deep.  I really need to fix the gov and throttle problem on it to give a better answer.  It dont have the power it should right now.     But if you know how to use it and dont force it she will get the job done.    Wet snow use a plow.  Nice powder any blower loves that.

Ok. I want to make sure my 1250 is fully functional 1st then search for snow removal stuff. Someday I hope to have an 1886, so if I get a blower and blade I can use them in the future.
