I loaded the blower in Monday's 3 ft drifts and (plowed snow in the end of driveway) enough to bog the engine right down, where I had to stop and let it catch up. yee haw!!! Cab is nice especially with the wind and cold we had on Monday. Burrrr.

I haven't been able to pull down the 7790 yet...I gave it a good try this fall running a deck and PECO vac...the belts would slip before the diesel would pull down, so I had to quit monkeying around and let things catch up. I'd love to try blowing snow with it, but don't want a blower to store.

My Briggs 16 will pull down if I run the 42" into a snowbank, but only pulls down so far before I begin to see the snow from the chute peter out, which I assume means a slipping belt.

I would be neat to test how much of a load the various engines will take, using a direct drive on a blower. I can pull down the CH25 in the Legacy, running a 4' rotary mower off the 540. That engine, in that platform, seems lite to me. I think the hydro system takes quite a bit of the Command out of that tractor....when accellerating hard, it gets into the governor noticably. Flipping on a loaded front or rear PTO does also.

On my cab I went to napa and got a larger wiper for the windshield, I think the factory is 12 inchs and I bumped it to 16 inchs if I remember right. My wiper was shot anyway but it sure made a big difference. I also had one of those small 12 volt heaters. I just wired a momentary switch so it would blow heat while you held the button. I can tell you in a small cab it heats up fast! Never did get to insulate or the radio but oh well. Dome lites were really nice too!

If the command has the power of the diesel I will take one. I can't believe blower set up: long belt on mid pto, no belt slip, no cone clutch slip, really works the diesel. The wiper needs some work for sure I will try a longer blade. Heater would have been nice(or hold my breath) fogged and frosted windows. Tried a fan blowing on windshield didn't help.
