    Picked up a new tractor for plowing and other Misc work. Hope to get some action pics tonight.

    Fingers crossed.....

    Thanks for the comments.

    I am going to run a big customized western angle plow for now, then a Blizzard 8611 one I can afford another plow.

    I have other tractors to plow with. This is just the newest.

    Gee, I wonder who that might be?

    I played with it this morning to get the bugs out. Everything worked out well but that "Someone" is going to have a learning curve.

    figured plow was going to be tricky to level out.

    Thats what I was expecting, but it was the over all length of the machine that throws you.

    I did also decide on getting that Blizzard plow for it. The big western is a bit to wide to get between some of the curbs, handicap signs, and cart corals. Plus with my engineering ability, I just dont trust a good solid cub hit with it. It does however do excatally what I want in the windrowing catergory.

    I will get you this weekend to come and take a look at it. Sunday maybe? bring Theo?

    ya lets get the kiddoes together. I know the blizzard and fisher are the same but you should get the fisher to match better. Don't worry I figure it out, after all I am the Plowninja.
