Quality seat time

Recommended Posts

Finally got in some quality seat time plowing the 3" I got New Years eve. It was a great way to bring in the New Year. I took pictures but can't seem to find my cable to upload to the PC. OK, a question: What height do you adjust your shoes at? I have a blacktop drive and have the shoes adjusted at about 1/8" which seems to have left a little more snow than I would like to. I know some that don't use the shoes on pavement so whats your thought on that? I have tried it but the plow seems to vibrate across the pavement. I also found that this snow didn't slide off the plow very well when plowing at an angle (time for fresh paint and a wax job I quess). Good thing is the wheel weights and ATV tires did there job as I had plenty of traction, It also seem that the weights helped with the limited slip action of the rear? did more rotating mass to spin help keep one wheel from spinning quicker? I think so because when I did spin it was both wheels.

Here on the R.I. coast,we didn't get enough snow to even bother with,but i did take out the 725 with the new shoes on the blade {courtesy of RayS. ],,the manual says to plow pavement with out the shoes,but i noticed that it was a lot quieter with them,though a thin coating of snow was left behind,sure beats shoveling !

I always wondered if you mounted some sort of rubber edge on the blade scraper bar if it would help reduce the chatter/bouncing of the blade..I have heard that John Deere has a squeegy to mount onto their blades..Not sure if one could bolt onto a Simplicity blade or not though..

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
