    Hi All

    The small steering wheel, is used to move the snow blower shoot, when it is in the straight position I can fit a ten foot shoot onto the raised platform which allows the snow can be blown directly into a trailer.

    More heavy snow forecast for this week, so may be more pics for you all.

    that's one way to deal with that pesky newspaper buried in the snow.

    How many inches of snow do you get a year?

    Hi All

    Yes it is a 2 cyl BMW so it is a screamer, when I got it it was not running right, had flames coming out of the exhaust, looked realy good in the dark.

    As to snow depth a normal year we would only have a few days of snow at 4 inches,

    however past few years snow has been around for months,

    but this year snow started in Nov, normal snow would not come until Feb,

    so this year we had 5 days in a row where we got between 8 and 12 inches every night,

    more snow on way this week.

    Now go north a hundred miles and you get into the ski centres, but I am in the low areas.


    yours Shogun
