Hi, Newbie here in New Hampshire

Hello everyone, I signed up a few weeks ago, paid my dues this morning so I guess I'm New Hampshires latest Simple Tractor addict. My original search was for a Sears Suburban until I came across the SimpleTractors site one day. After spending day after day checking out the site, I started to look for a Simplicity. What I ended up with was an Allis Chalmers Big Ten with a few attachments. It runs and drives good. Mid and rear PTO's came in 5 gallon buckets with the tractor. During a recent snow storm my wife asked me why I didn't have a snow plow or snow blower for it. I guess thats the green light to search out 2 more attachments!! Pics to come soon. Looking forward to meeting all of you. -Mike

Welcome Mike Sometimes we can use a plumber to take care of some of us drips.:D A Big-10 is a good choice for your first tractor,they are easy to work on and will do what the big boys do only slower. If you watch the classifieds you should come across a snow blade or snow thrower.

welcome to the bunch. Since winter is about over down there, look harder for a blower and try to find one of the later ones with the augar being full width. The early ones act like a funnel in a snow berm.

I actually live in Goffstown NH, but I put Manchester because thats easier to find on a map. I'm about 1/2 hour from Massachusetts, 1 hour to the Maine border, and a little over an hour to the Vermont border. All reasonable driving times for "tractor stuff" here in the New England area. Larry8200- Nice pic of your Big Ten. You've even got headlights!! Willy- Speaking of drips, I do have a drip pan under the tractor as a matter of fact. Current weather conditions here in southern NH - snowing like crazy!

Hi Mike: Welcome. I'm just about an hr from you in Ipswich, MA. I just so happen to have an extra simplicity 42' manual plow and hitch. You will not believe how much snow you can push with these machines; I took my snow blower off a few weeks ago to clean up some slush. We had 5-6" last night which created 200' of 2-1/2' high drifts. That's what the wind off the ocean does! I was able to push a bunch of it back out of the way. The only thing that stopped me was loss of traction. Here is my Craig's list info: http://boston.craigslist.org/nos/grd/2236270176.html Feel free to PM me if you want more info.
