Old man winter just hasn't let up :O It snowed all day today and it's still snowing :O Light powdery snow . I got home today and had to do a brake job for a guy I work with . So by the time I got to play The 6" of snow was all packed down on the driveway from the cars. The B-112 did as good as it could but It wouldn't scrape down to the pavement . The diesel tractor with the plow wouldn't touch it either . I got the B-12 with the 42" blade, With the hyro down pressure It got under the hard pack and pealed it all lose .Then I was able to snow blow it all clean, Time consuming but a lot of fun Dec.20th and we have 26" of snow :O these little tractors are really getting a workout this winter so far . And me too 4 hrs. I'm tired ^

Up here in the Worcester hills, I got about 1.5" overnight, it cleared during the day, then we've gotten another inch or more this evening and its still coming down in light flurries... This is the stuff I don't like. 1" - 3" at a time, every day or so. Give me a big storm, let me clean it up and be done with it. That's quality tractor time. This constant shoveling and scraping gets old real quick...:p

Kent I think that extra 100 ft of elevation is getting to you!OO I think I 've gotten about a half inch or so today and I'm very happy with that! From Sunday a week ago to this past Sunday I put in a total of about 84 hrs, including a stretch of 32 hrs and 22 hrs. Only yesterday was I really back to my old self and had time to work on the old horses in the garage.To think this is only December and just the start of "winter"!

When you apply down pressure Paul, do you have the blade at an angle? If I don't stay in float with the blade angled I'm in the snow berm pretty quick.
Had to straight blade it Marty, Front wheels of the ground ,Made a mess but I clean it up with the blower .

I just finished cleaning the last of the ice off my black top drive.I had about 3/4 of an inch over most of it. The weather warmed up to the 30's so it started to loosen up,I put the back blade on my Big-10 used as much down pressure as Possible and it peeled off in most places that was yesterday what didn't come loose I salted down good,and got the rest today. Just in time, it's supposed to snow tomorrow.(oh well)sm00

Light freezing drizzle or heavy mist now in northern MN. Roads are getting slick. 1” to 3” snow tonight through 6:00 PM tomorrow. Weather advisory. Lots of accidents around Fargo according to the radio. People driving way to fast and then oops.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
