Its cyclic. Here in Columbus Ohio we can have go year after year where our biggest snow is the 2-3" variety. This year has been a bit different and it has stayed cold enough for it to stay longer than a couple of days. I'll fix that though, when my tractors are snow ready next season, we'll be back to the 2-3" "storms"....

Here in MO the snow totals are quite variable. Haven't seen much here in Central MO, while both north and south have seen much heavier amounts this year. I can live without the snow, I'm in an apartment most of the time so playing with tractors isn't an option anyway, I'd just like to see some 40+ temps again, its been brutally cold here.

I'm in that band that falls between the 6"-12" or 12"-24". If I had a running machine, I'd be fine. However, my 4040 is in pieces in the barn and I really don't want to clear it w/ the walk behind. I'm hoping I can get the tractor back together tonight.

Bob, The snows caught me napping this winter. I plan to send the snow back your way by having three tractors up and ready next winter. My 716H with a snowblower, my 713S with a blade, and the EF1 with the bucket for the really heavy snow. This year all I had ready for the first 15 inch snow was the EF1. A bucket does the job but is slow going since you need to dump it so often. I had the blade on the 716H by the third snow, which helped a lot. Next year I will also have the blower mounted and ready. I also fixed a walk behind snowblower that belongs to one of my neighbors. That is a backup now.:D By the way, this current snow went North of us. We got nothing, and I love it.sm01 With all this equipment ready, it shouldn't snow here again for another 5 to 10 years. This is what happened the first time I mounted a snowblower on one of my tractors.

Well I am in the 12-24in area. Its been snowing since I got home this morning. Was much lighter earlier. Seams to be kicking in now as they said. 917 with the newer M-18 and blower is working well now after a few quirks. Also have a 125 Cub with a blade and a walk behind. My 2 23yr old sons should be home soon and I know at least one wants to play in the snow. If all else fails I will have to get old reliable out. The 89 GMC w/ the plow. Rusting out badly so I try not to use it much. By next year I should have the 919 re-engined and will but the blade on that. Who knows what else may come my way by then.

Hey I'm with Bob still could use a bit more winter seat time. Still trying some things to see if blower is improved. Plus want my money's worth before I have to change to "summer" oil.

Some other part of the country needs to have some of our "fun" I move snow for my job, it can get pretty exciting, dull or downright crazy at times.

Dave, I'm with you. I'd like to quote Spaceballs and say "we ain't found ****". I mean I've got the truck ready and the 101 setup as a spare. For the past 2 years I haven't mounted the blower on another spare (to Rod's point) because I want the fun in the snow. :D At this point I've only gotten to tool around with the truck twice (at the end of '09) and just because I gave the 101 a teaser with the last 2"er that we had.... come on bring it Jack Frost ya pansy!! ngr2
