Snow blower Thank You

Recommended Posts

During my annual near cussing session of installing the snow blower and tire chains on my 7117. I noticed again that the belt was not straight to the snowblower pulley front the hitch I got from Ray a couple years ago. Knowing Ray's hitch should be right, I could not figure out my problem.

Then I woke up at 3:30 with the solution, flip the driven pulley on the snow blower! I then grabbed my laptop an could confirm my idea right here in Talking Tractors.

So I woke up, again, this morning and ran out and flipped that pulley and wow what a difference! Now my belt aligns properly.

Now we need to scare that snow away that foretasted for tonight.

I always hate those '3am wake-ups' 'cause later I wonder 'what took you so long'

but I want the snow. I have a 3 belt blower for my B-1 that I have never used. i'd like to try it out just once. but someone I wont name constantly tells me "I never wanted to move to florida" so i'll suffer in silence.

Here in NW Milwaukee snow so far could be handled with a heated leaf blower.:D 50-60 mi SW in the Janesville - Beloit area 11-13" so far. Talking about really ducking the "bullet".;)

Yeah, I am near 10 inches just south of Rockford. On the driveway the snow was pretty wet, but thankfully my driveway is not that big and a 42" blower makes pretty quick work of it.

Plus a blacktop drive helps as to took a while for anything to stick.

Dav,

Once I get my blower and chains on, it can be fun blowing snow. It is just the annual getting ready that I dread. Flipping that pulley helps take one more concern of mine away.

If I could just find a way to put tire chains on as easy as the blower. Even with letting the air out I still end up fighting to get them tight.

id="quote">A heated leaf blower eh? Down in my neck of the woods, I had about 8-10" on my truck, about 6" on the grass, and about 3" of slop on the driveway. My MTD paddle "POS" handled the wet, heavy snow quite nicely.My son lives on the SW side of Janesville. He says he went out twice, but I attribute that to him having a brandy new two stage walk behind and using it for the first time. LOL

      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!😁
