Finally some snow.

First real snow since last October. This pair has been out of work. My backup blower on B-210 has a cab, but I put it on and immedialetley took it back off. At 6'6" 270 it was a tight fit!!! When I can wait till after the storm (like today) I think I'd just as soon have an open tractor. Of course today the wind was at my back. One good wind blown face full from the blower and I might not say that! I haven't used the heat shield the last two years on the 74 Sovereign and cant say it makes much difference. With or without it you have to be real carefull when snow is blowing on the carb/points side of the engine and temperature is well below freezing. If the governor freezes under a heavy load you can really over rev the engine.

Finally got a "snowblowable" snowfall here in New York State as well. The Deutz 912H started right up after sitting patiently waiting in the unheated garage since the beginning of November when I ran it last. Gotta love Interstate batteries!!:D

5 inches of wet heavy slop in Oshkosh Wisconsin. Allis 810GT took care of it with no problem, 45 minutes of playing, which included doing sidewalks for a block in each direction. Wife was not here to take pics, sorry. Steve

SE WI we got about 7", and last night and this morning got some good time with the tractor. Ended up doing 7 driveways in the area, and never did the blower clog up. Impressed with the tractor and blower. Enjoyed the quality time, and snow was very wet and heavy. No photos also, as I'm the only one out at that time... So about 2 hours total seat time. Looks like the balance of the week will be on maintenance of the mower deck.
