Well it didn't snow much all year and I was really hopen for some so I could try this blade out. Found out that when there is slush or 1/4" of ice below 8" of snow chains are a must. Spent 1/4 of the time getting the freakn' tractor unstuck.

I used the 49 blower on the 120 on Saturday and spent most of the time unclogging the spout. Oy

Ahhh, the trials and tribulations of moving snow. I find conditions (traction and snow consistency) are so variable that it takes some time , maybe a couple of seasons, to really get a good handle on what you need to get the job done. I have a hill up to the road and that can be a real heart breaker when you hit that and start spinning. I find chains are a must have here. I also have a walk behind blower that I use and would like to get a blower for the rear PTO on my CUT. It's nice to have a choice of blower or blade when going into battle!

I got the first big layer of snow done and then figured that I should dirrect the skilled workers so things would get done right.

We got another 1-2 inches of snow last night and got the tractor out this morning and what a difference the chains make. I will get a pic this afternoon and get it posted.

Chains are a big help for sure. Well worth having a set even if you only need them occasionally. I always use some sort of tensioner to help keep them tight. I use those HD rubber hold down straps, 3/wheel. You can get spring tensioners as well. Tirechains.com is a good source of info for chains, tensioners etc.

Well think it may be time to start another project on the 317. started making a trailer and think it is time for a new paint job as well.

for the trailer I am using a rear-end of a JD 111 that I parted and I am in the process of making attachments that will be able to bolt onto the frame of the trailer. plans are for a dump cart attachment, spreader and a blower/vac using the pulley that is on old rear-end. it may be able to be utilized for items but I haven't come up with any at this point.

any ideas out there?

will post some pictures in a little bit.

That's a neat idea. Never thought of using the 'spare' rear end to 'power' something. Hmmmmm? Keep posting your project. Ideas may come to light.

for anyone around the NE or IA area think this may be a deal someone would be intrested in for repower (or check the points ;-) ... if i had the cash on hand i would be in for the power steering alone :)
