More Snow Pictures from Indiana

Recommended Posts

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!!

We only had a couple of inches a few days ago.It was the first time that I used the allis with snow cab and it is a lot better than using the bobcat with bucket.I like the fact of no snow piles and hopefuly the snow will not drift in as much. Hope it makes it throught the winter without major problems.Next year I hope to have a hydro on it.Not bad for free.Bob

We also had about 4" or more of snow^ and freezing rain:( and rain on thursday up here in Fenwick,Ontario,Canada. Cleaned the snow in the morning in the rain with the Allis Chalmers HB-112 with 46" snow blade. Over one hour later and wet coat & gloves I was done. I'am glad I made all the paths wider than normal,the paths are all ice covered now and all the rest of the snow on the ground is turned hard like a rock. Nice looking Simplicity 7117H Karl

dcw06, It looks like you are using a front blade hitch for your rear blade. Could you post some pictures of your rear blade set-up including how you have it mounted to the hitch? Thanks,

Here are the pics of my grader blade set up,for now.When I bought the tractor the blade came with it but no hitch.So a coworker had a newer style blade with the spring trip on the blade.took it off his hands for 40 bucks.Well it didnt fit the front,so I drug it around to the back and thought close enough for now.Then I took the old blade and the grinder and removed the mount.Cut the blade off to 7 or 7 1/2 inches high beefed up the top edge with angle iron.Welded the mount back on the front side.The hitch is to wide for the tractor so I use a flat washer on each side of the hitch on the right to take any slop out and go play.I can bolt the skid shoes on and it does a pretty good clean up job on the gravel drive.Almost forgot The newer blade all so came with a bolt on lift lever and rod.So I welded it to a steel plate and bolted it under the step.I use it for the blower and the original lift for the blade.As far as how do I like my cab? Best Christmas present I ever found for the wife to buy me... [img]/club2/attach/dcw06/Grader.jpg[/img] [img]/club2/attach/dcw06/grader1.jpg[/img] [img]/club2/attach/dcw06/Grader2.jpg[/img]

Hi Great pictures, I definately need to look into a cab for my Agco Allis 1920H as I do a lot of snowblowing in the winter, so far this year I looked like a snowman after blowing snow with out a cab on my 1920H LOL. I will have to look into a cab for next year. Take Care Jason B
