    You use that machine privately or is it a municipal machine?

    Nice to see another bluenoser that got lots of snow. I'm in Chester Grant, we got 72CM, which is roughly 2 1/2 feet.

    It's my own tractor, a LS 7010C with a Pronovost blower with side chute, as you can see from the pic, and a Horst 9' angle blade. Second year for the machine and it's been the answer for this winter, have a number of contracts and lots of snow lately.

    Big Baddeck, we didn't get that much the last storm, but still lot's for me! I think everyone ready for spring, can't believe they're forecasting 20cms tonight!

    That 101 cm was between Monday and Wednesday morning, 60 Monday and 40 Tuesday over night. Spring can't come soon enough! As of now, they are calling for rain here, but who knows

    Is anyone near Big Pond Ns. I have a family member that lives there but needs a tractor snow blower setup to clear it.

    I am about a 45 minute drive away. However my trailer is buried under about 5 feet of snow and that would be too long of a drive in the tractor. AMD doesn't run any tractors with blowers but they do run a kubota skid with a blower on it. If you email me their contact information, I can pass it along to Andrew at AMD and see if they can help you out

    How many hours have you put on the 7010 and how has the dealer service been?

    You see the odd LS7010 around here but just used on private properties, the ones I've seen the owners hardly use them, I know the dealer for them here will finance one for $215 bi weekly with 0 down. Comes with 4wd, cab, loader & 86" snow blower.

    I'm just at 500hrs, bought it in Moncton, dealer support is OK, just a little far away, but I knew that going in. I'm pretty pleased with the tractor overall.
