Snow...

With all the pending doom the news was predicting, I figured I would take off the mower deck and get em ready. All greased and gassed up.

Found these flanges in the scrap pile at work, for a 3" shaft, they made nice wheel weights. No drilling required! About 35lbs each plus the ag's are loaded with washer solvent.

We only got about 6 or 7" but it drifted bad. Not hardly the 10-15" they predicted here. Got some good seat time tho, the ole 738 never missed a beat, had snow coming over the top of the blower sometimes. Still amazes me how well this thing throws snow. I have the skids down 1.5" to keep the stones from flying. Then I hit it with the 3416H with the blade to clean it up.

I only found 3 of them, if I had one more I would double them up. Couldn't beat em for fit and function. Especially for what weights go for nowadays.
