WAAHOO!! Part 2

Recommended Posts

Spent the day blowing all the same area I cleaned yesterday. With the additional snow and wind we got overnight. 725 with 36" blower worked flawlessly. Now the temp is dropping and is supposed to get below 0 for the next few days.

My barn is heated and the truck and tractor stays inside, don't have to warm the truck up in the mornings going to work!!! Actully, the right side of the barn is where I am at on the computer right now. Hooked up with broadband so internet is instant. It's what I call "The Manroom"

My wife even gave me a new head sock when I went to the house to get a scarf for my face and she said "Merry Christmas early"

I haven't that much fun outside in the cold and snow for along time. Everyone have a Merry Christmas!! and please keep our troops in your prayers.. hdrhdr (Randy)

Great pictures Randy. Esp like the walkway with the nice straight sides. A blower on a 725 is a lot of fun. Seeing how my pineapple express is now being challenged by a high presure outta the ole USSR with wins up to 60mph and snowing like mad I'll likely be digging out my blower in the morning. Plowed with the Landlord tonight but about out of anyplace to put it as my burms don't get hard enough to drive up over. Think I'll put it on the 725 as the 112 need TLC this winter.

That 725 is doing a nice job randy. Seeing you out there all bundled up reminds me of how cold it is without a cab. I just ain't tuff enough for that snow in the face stuff anymore. Great pictures, thanks.

Here in south central Indiana we had about 22" of the white stuff on Wed. & Thursday. My Simplicity 7117H with hydraulic lift, 42" snowblower, chains and wheel weights did an excellent job taking care of the snow. After I had cleaned my neighbor's drives across the street, they said that the blower was worth its weight in gold since the snow was too deep to plow. I also have a Simplicity 7117H Sovereign with manual lift and a Simplicity 7117 Shuttle with manual lift. You just can't beat them!!

D-17 dave, the pic's above are the second 10" of snow. Temps were in the 20's so I would have to say lite and fluffy. I had no steering what so ever. When temps dropped down to the low teens steering improved. I need to get ag tires for the front and play with the differintial. I still have to open up the neighbors drive (about 300') on Sunday so i'll adjust things accordingly.

I'm just a little north of hdrhdr (Randy), and it's -2 right now. I used my neighbor's Montgomery Ward walk behind for about 2 hours last evening getting our street and driveways cleared. Anyone know if Simplicity made these? I'm guessing it's a 70's model. I mounted the blade on my B-208, but now the motor won't turn. The starter does, but the engine is locked. Could I have flooded it so much to lock the motor until I remove the spark plug? It ran the other day. And, of course, I couldn't get my Simplicity walk behind started. Prepared, I'm not. But I've got next week off to mess with them, thank goodness.

Scott, its possible you have too much raw fuel in there. I'd pull the plug and see if it cranks. My chain saw will do that if I bring it in from the cold and let it warm up before I try to start it. If I remove the plug, crank it over a few times, put the plug back in it'll fire right up. Think in my case it's expanded air from warming. My solution has been start it cold, let it run, then bring it in.
