    Here's a few pics and vids from a storm that moved over us on the weekend...the blower is 72" wide an 39" high, so she takes a pretty good swath of snow...there hasn't been a week since Dec 1'st where I haven't been out at least 2-3 times....the tractor was new with 2.5 hours on it....now it's showing 230 hours....would've been a good season to have the customers on the per snow trip instead of the contract rate.....can't have it all right.....:drinkup:

    Been not bad lately...yesterday was -3C/26F, today was +6C/42F. The blower is 86" wide, not the 72" I first started above.

    Not as bad as you'd think...most driveways you're only in reverse for maybe 20-30 seconds for each pass, these long lanes are a bit hard on the neck.

    Hi Triple.....the tractor has around 100 Hp...it can sure handle snow. The blower has a sidechute where the whole drum will rotate with a hydraulic motor to either discharge left or right or straight up....using the sidechute doesn't use near the hp that it does to push the snow up the main chute.....it's great in heavy snow like this.

    The chain going around the cogs makes the most noise, I've recently tried chainsaw oil since it's super sticky and stays on the chain longer.
