Recommended Posts

Was out Sunday, after an overnite "dusting" on the drive, turnaround, grass (leaves)!Just "back dragging" to remove the under lying leaves, down to the crushed stone (help prevent the typical buildup of ice (up to 8"), that lasts until April some years!sm02

Monday became a firewood day, after dragging logs out of the woods on Sunday! Halfway through the splitting, the low pressure return hose on the splitter sprung a leak, today is fix the splitter,and try to get the lights operating on the 2110/12!

This weekend promises to be the first significant snowfall of the season, NWS is not sure yet how much will arrive from the west coast stormsm00

Looks gooddOd Glad you were able to get some seat time. We got a dusting last night just enough to be a PITA, wondering if we'll ever get enough to blow.

id="quote">Thanks Lloyd,Yes I understand, we have not had much of any snow in MA this year so far.This last storm I was in process of setting up the 3112 when it hit, so by the time I got to it, the sun had come out and and turned it into a very wet snow.We are due to be getting a storm this weekend, so now being ready to go, I can get some more seat time and throw some powder hopefully.I will post some more pictures when that happens.Best Regards,

Nice job, Awesome snow machine.dOd I have an identical tractor but not the nice new Cab :(

Is the stinger required for the hydrolift to raise a blower? I've only had a dozer on mine thus far...

id="quote">Greg thanks for the positive feedback.Yes, I would say the stinger weight is absolutely a must to lift that heavy blower.Best Regards,

I have a 3212H with hydro lift and stinger is not needed to lift the blower.I rebuilt the hydro lift years ago and it still strong enought to lift the front of the tractor


id="quote">
id="quote">Thanks Larry,I will have to try it sometime without the stinger. Of course the extra weight on the back is a plus regardless for traction and assisting the hydraulics.Best Regards,

      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.
