    here are some pics i snapped during the snow storm. coulnd take much video cause it was really hectic being short a sub.

    So we started off sunday dethawing the the loader. drained the fuel, changed the filter. running ..cool
    then sunday we had to get the skidsteer started, a little heet and we got her fired up. also fixed a flat tire for some one that lives in the apartments that the skidsteer is at..needed a tire plug.

    Snow looks good we only got about half of what you guys did here ( north of detroit ). The wind made it seem as if there was a foot at my condos! Does your new holland have a block heater? I have a had to take a heat gun to my gelled filters to get it started. I am now running diesel 911 fuel additive and using my block heater. If I plug it in the glow plugs do not even cycle.
