Well everyone, now im offically waiting for snow!! I bought these 2 air tires from tractor supply on sale for 5.99 ea. I drilled 2 holes in the blower sides so the cutting edge is about 1/2" off the ground, and I installed them with 1/2" grade 8 bolts. I'm hoping that the tires will keep my stones in the driveway and out of the grass until the ground freezes solid. Then I will simply remove the tires and run the blower normally. I also got the fel loader ready for moving piles. I marked the driveway out with stakes, got the garage cleaned and helped a buddy swap winter tires onto his girlfriends car(it had a stripped lugnut head, he tried to do it on his own and spent 4hrs, then came over to my place for help.) So it was a real productive night. Enjoy the pics, and let it snow!!

Thats a great setup you got there :bounce:

I cant believe how nice the weather has been here. Seems like whenever you are ready for snow you never get any and when You dont have the snow gear ready you get pounded with snow LOL.

Yea I agree Brian, The weather has been way too nice for this time of year. But im worried its the calm before the storm! I have a feeling a good snow storm is gonna be coming, and the lake staying warm isn't a good thing at all.

The blower looks good. I had to plow our first major snowfall (12") yesterday and with no frost in the ground it took all the fun out of it. I had to try to float the blade manually which is difficult to say the least. I don't know how bad I scalped the driveway. Your wheels should do the job. you're bound to need them soon!
