SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

Well, Last week it was in the 60's and 70's here in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Yesterday (Saturday) it was in the high 60's. I pulled the 3416 out changed the oil, changed the Hydraulic Filter, TOOK THE SNOWPLOW AND CHAINS OFF, and cleaned the air filter. I got the mower deck out, greased it up, checked the belts, and got it ready for the first mowing of the season. I decided not to put the deck on until today because I had some wood up the hill that I needed to haul to the shed. I got up this morning and we had 5" of wet snow on the ground and it is still snowing. My trees are budding, my tulips are blooming and my apple trees are ready to bloom. I really dont like this Midwest type weather. It shouldnt snow this late in March. Now I will have to put my blade and chains back on. But, maybe if I wait it will all melt away.

Well, if it makes you feel better, Old Glory is standing straight out this morning, support by a northwestern wind blowing snow at plus 2 degrees..Most likely will spend my day off sitting here with my feet across the corner of the desk.MPH

Roma, I may have ensured that we get a substantial snow. Yesterday I removed the snowblower and put it away, so I could get room in the barn to bring the 2012/loader in to work on it.... I did leave the HD dozer blade out, and I still have chains on, but I probably just ensured that we'll get too much for the blade to handle... :)

Thanks Kent...........I took my blower off also and stashed it as far under the pile as I possibly could.:(;) I did leave the blade on the 2110 though.:p Hope I don't need to plow,I just started raking the dirt off the grass.:p:p

I was missing the snow so much, I decided to make my yard white again just for the nostalgia factor....... Not really, that's 1600 pounds of pulverized limestone spread out all over the place. I used the Putt Putt and Brinley spreader(175# cap.) for the lime after thatching, sweeping, and aerating a total of three passes of each over two days. We just got some decent rain so tomorrow I'll run the thatch rake over the yard again, then seed it and roll the seed. Stand by for heavy mowing in a few weeks.........

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
