I sit and look at the 716H with nothing to do... Can't get in a lick of tractor time. Wish we'd get one of those 3-day snows, 12 inches each day. That would be good...

I AGREE!! I think its great to get out there and go head-to-head with mother nature. With my Simplicity I can take the worst Snowstorm she can dish out and blow it back at her... To all the Winter Wariors out there....Enjoy!!! sm01 (I'm reusing this post I made on another thread earlier today)

Oh no.. I love tons of snow and blizzards. When I was a kid in NH, I remember the school bus stopping, she'd open the door, and snow fell in. Still went to school. I just love getting prepped for a multi-day storm, when the world outside is closed and you can just sit inside and watch it fall. And drink beer. Did I mention beer?

Why??? After shoveling/blowing something every winter season of my adult life, I kind of like it so far.:D:D

You know, after growing up having to do chores and milk cows before I went to school, now I don't miss the snow at all. I will be perfectly happy if the auger on the blower collects a little rust from not being useddOddOddOd. You guys can have all the snow!!!

I wished for snow shortly after I got my new (to me) blower attachment all hooked up, wired up, and ready to go... I finally got the snow, about 12 inches. When I went to clear the snow is when I discovered the ring gear and starter were no longer seeing eye to eye... So now the 720 and snow thrower sit and mock me as I trudge through the snow in my Baffins... The replacement ring gear has arrived and now I need to find time to pull the engine...

If all the rain we have was snow it would up to your lower posterior.Something like 10in. of snow per 1in. of rain. You youngsters go ahead and pray for snow,after 34 year of carrying mail I would sooner set inside and watch it rain.:D:D

OK, after more "improvements" on my rig, could use some snow to try her out. Every time I go into the outbuilding I end up doing a bit more, wax chute, grease again, start and let warm up, recheck the chains..... Time to blow snow! I do enjoy the challenge and welcome it. BLT turner project is moving forward....

I have a hard time really understanding what yall mean by wishing and wanting snow. I used to want it when I was a kid for snow days out of school, but now that im older and have to work outside and drive with all the other idiots, I hate what it does to our area. Everything shuts down and nobody knows how to drive in it. Seriously, if they call for a chance of snow, they go ahead and delay the start of school. I was blowing leaves today wearing shorts and a t-shirt. Thats how I like my Decembers. Cheaper on that ol heat bill too!!

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
