Still dealing with leaves here...I did replace the seized bearing in my blower hitch though. The snow is due any time...Kinda on borrowed time with the one last leaf pickup I have to do.

720nut

Still doing cleanups here, at least one last mow on most yards. Had snow Saturday night up by Gaylord Mi.

I forgot but I've got blower on 720 and plow ready for my S10, so guess I'm ready for what ever is sent are way.

I put a blade on the B110 for any suprises, but the XL has the quick tach loader, blade, broom and 2 stage, so no real need to prep anything. I usually set the hard cab on after the first good snow.

Last year I was plowing by now...

Leaves?? weeds??---------------oh yea, I remember those,B)

112 has been moved into the shop for a month with the blower in. Landlord has fall oil change done, but still working, well, in use. Have the wood splitter hooked on it. Hadda put the blade hitch on last week to clean up mess a log truck driver left unloading 10 cords near the end of the driveway.

Looking at 50 MPH wind gusts here on Thurdsay, so I ain't a cleanin' up nutin' until that is over with. Then a final clean and getting the cab and blower mounted, winter tires, and preping the two blower attachements and one walk behind Ariens for sale.

Leaves are all done and the blower is going on the 7122 this weekend. At some point it will get fitted for the cab as well, leaving my 7116 that has taken care of the driveway for the last few years for plow duty on the lighter days.

Simplicity7013H

Well, due to lack of storage, I'm haveing to clear the barn and garage and reorganize. Once I get the cab on, there's room for another tractor. My barn can hold 5 tractors and still have room to work. Although none of this is done, here is my winter plan.....

I'm the barn from Left to right:

New Broadmoor

3112- back up plow

7117

4211

7013

In the garage:

64 Landlord - Blower

7016H- plow

717 will be shoved under the work bench

Just got a 7016H so I think I will plow with it

i hate to wait to the last minute.

id="quote">That's what I love about these machines...it's so easy to swap things around, and in November it's rarely cold enough to bother me. Typically, any November snow melts off the drive by lunchtime anyway.I wouldn't want to be prepping a machine in late December though...last year I sold my AGCO 2025 in March and had to remove the cab and mounts, 3pt and rear PTO on a -2* morning before the buyer showed up. That sucked. Bad.

I generally wait until the first snow to put the snow removal gear on my tractors. This year I decided to be different, and put the blower on the Legacy about 2 weeks ago since it was already snowing by this time last year. Good thing I did, and that it hasn't snowed yet, because I found out that the chute rotator motor has quit working. But, alas, I haven't gotten around to getting that fixed yet. I can't figure out what's wrong with it, so I gotta find some place to take it to. Hopefully I get around to fixing it before the first snow, but knowing me probably not.

anymore I wait till the snow is flying to bother mounting a plow or blower. There's been too many winters where I've had everything ready, only to not touch it till spring when I put the tiller on. Besides, I still need to chop my corn and mulch my leaves before it snows ^

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
