    Is that the Stratford Case dealer between Stratford and New Hamburg?

    How much does that thing weigh?

    That's pretty sweet. It even has a trip edge, I like that.

    Well thanks

    In our small factory city of 30,000 snow is big business in the winter, as we live on the highest point in Ontario smack dab in the middle of 3 huge bodies of water and the snow belt. Our 5 year average snowfall yearly is around 175 inches per, seen as high as 275 myself one year.

    Snow streamers off the lakes can drop 4-18" of fresh snow everyday
    when conditions are right.

    With written contracts you have to be over-equiped and prepared all the time or risk getting caught with daily large snowfalls that must still be cleared before plants and malls etc open...

    Is that really 175inches?

    I've seen snow systems pound London Woodstock and Stratford and miss us completely in West end Kitchener

    Thought you guys would have got something out of Friday afternoon. . .nothing?

    Yes, 175 inches

    Lake streamers missed us Friday, went to the south and north of us by about 15 miles... kinda glad it didn't as we are still getting equipment ready to roll.

    Over the years I can't count how many times we got snow but Kitchener got none, funny how lake streamers work. Snow line is normally New Hamburg.

    I can still remember Stratford getting 28" in one day, New Hamburg which is only 12 miles east got 2".... I'd take 2" over 28" anyday..

    Tractor looks really good. I can see why you need the blower with 175" of snow. Do a search for Big Red. It has the same blade as yours but a 16 ft. This is the 4th winter for that blade and we have 9 HLA blades all together. Good Luck.

    Love the new blade, Stratford. I'll hopefully be able to post on here next year. I'd like to get a 8' 3000 series for the L5030 i've got now, and i'd like to add a machine with the city- probably a 12 or 14' 5000 series would be required.
    Once again, great lookin' set up and best of luck with it!
    p.s.- if you need to replace the front tires after a short while, don't be surprised. I'd suggest Michelin Agribib as a replacement.

    Here is mine, 12' Horst with manual end plates. Just traded it in for a new 10' with power wings. Should have been here a week ago. I hope it shows up before the snow starts.
