Well, looking at the long range forecast I plan to put thrower away and remove wheel weights and chains tomorrow. Didn’t blow a flake this year. Weird weather in SE Pa. Extremely cold dry weather with periodic major warm ups with lots of rain.

I used mine quite a bit, but the long range doesnt call for much more snow.....I have a blade and walk behind blower in the wings, so I took my blower off the other day....Had real downpour of rain, so had to put my homemade bucket on and fix where it washed big ruts in to the driveway.

Winters not over yet , I think I'll set back and wait . Around here we have been hit in early April with some heavy snow storms.

I agree with bill 76.  We can get a lot of winter yet.  This is only the end of February.  March can be a real nasty month yet.  Haven't started the tractor with the thrower or front blade all winter but not going to make any moves yet.

    I had two tractors with blades, one tractor with a 48" snow blower, and one with a 36" snow blower that could be ready in a hurry if needed.  None of them ever left the shop!!!    Didn't move any snow last year either.   I am about ready to mount the mower decks and get the lawn roller filled.   It's a little early yet but I'm ready for spring to come any time soon!     Rick

Upstate, I used mine about four times; three times in one week.

Might as well sell the blower. Go ahead, I dare ya'!  :poke:

     We never got enough accumulation at any one time to worry about moving it.   If the wife's  Sub-Compact could drive through it I wasn't going to mess with it.     Missed out on some seat time, but I stayed warm and dry.    :D   Rick

The kids walking to school pass by every day and the people on either side of me never clean their walks. One is a church and the other is the phone company.  I hate to leave very much. Kids now days don't know enough to wear their galoches.

Won’t be selling thrower until I downsize and sell my whole portfolio. It will be a sweet deal for someone as I keep everything in perfect running condition.

Nothing in IN either. Had my bower out one time, just to try it. Used the blade a couple times, but it was on the small Deere, not the big PK. I wanted to try the blower more this year, my first one on tractor.

had more snow here in this month than we have gotten in Jan and Dec total. glad I have a 5'6" blade on the front of my 420 and a 50" Black Boar blade on the rear. Also the 49 blower on the 316 with a 42" Brinly blade on the rear. Between our driveway and sidewalks, the two neighbors driveways and sidewalks and the local church parking lot, I've moved enough snow to satisfy me for the year. Come on spring!

Strange year for us, only three small shots of snow. Have flipped a coin twice, if I should take the blower off, every time it lands on edge. Always have the Kubota, with loader and back blade. If I take the blower off, I might get in a hurry to work the garden, and that would be foolish, least 4 or 5 weeks before thinking about that.

Not much snow here this winter. Cold then warm then cold. Weird winter. But as said, March and April can be bad. But at least it melts quicker in those months.

We've got over 12" of fresh stuff from Friday to this morning. Bring your blower over here.
