Lots of good JD's in this thread.

I keep telling everyone that we're not getting any snow here this year. Last year, we had a house we couldn't get sold, the house we moved into, and the in-laws both had surgery - one for broken hand and the other a bad back. So there were 3 houses, all I had was shovels, and we got a decent snow or better about every week.

This year, we're down to one house ourselves, the in-laws are back in commission, and I picked up a small snowblower and a tractor/blade throughout the year. So it stands to reason we'll get zero snow.

My dad plows the snow every winter on my 110 roundfender JD tractor with a 10"brinly plow. He said maybe I can plow this year.

Then by all means, he should let you ;)
My boy has no interest in my panzer. He started references to country bumkin or whatever when I started putting it together. At which point I started refering to him as "pushmower boy". Which he still doesn't know what that means but he will next summer. That should be a lesson. The oldest girl and the wife think it's cool though. In fact, the oldest wants to take it and do a miniture hay-ride of her friends to next year's sadie hawkins dance at high school. I'm up for that.

And I hope you get some snow this year. I lived in Lititz for 2 winters and I do remember just a few good snows in that time. One of them was bad enough to stick my 2wd Ford Ranger in the parking lot of the VFW at Lititz Spring Park.

Huh? 10" Brinly plow? For snow removal?

TMO,

He was referring to his tractor that usually has the Brinly plow mounted on it. Not meaning, that I plow snow using the brinly plow. Sorry for the confusion. Keep in mind, he is 11 years old, and is still excited on joining this site. Sometimes his mind is saying one thing, but his fingers are typing something else.

Thanks, I knew I wasn't getting every detail, but was just going on what was posted. I thought maybe he was doing this:

I'm getting closer! Adding a window motor for chute rotation on the 49 blower. Got the motor mounting bracket made & painted today. Hopefully, I'll finish it tomorrow! ~~ grnspot
