    what model deere is that? what size engine and how wide is that blower? Was moving some massive amount of snow but i sort of throught it would have blew through it faster than that. How much snow were you backing into and was it running wide open? Nice setup! you need it out there lol

    It's a 2009 6430 John Deere. The blower is 96" wide and about 43" high. I was only running around 1800 RPM, although with the bigger blower, it should be up around 2200 RPM; I don't like pushing equipment too hard, that's usually when something breaks. Some of those drifts were pushing 4 feet high most of the way down that road

    RdTeK, Definitely brings back memories. How quickly it can accumulate and your standing outside in your underwear and a wool blanket because they thought it was a good time for a fire drill in the middle of :sleeping: an a freak snow storm happening outside.:help: I wonder how a VPlow would work in those type of conditions ?
