    Ok, so I dident wax the snowblower, but I waxed the power unit on the front of it. If you look really close you can see the blower on the back. I dident wax the blower casue theres no paint left on it.

    No, just clear around the farm with it. We dont have a loader out at the farm, so we have to always use the blower. Thats acually a really small blower for that tractor. We're looking at trading it for a 9fter. Heres another pic

    we take the duals off so its the same width of the snowblower. It still sticks out about 6 inches past the tires on both sides with just the singles on it. We used to have it on a smaller tractor so it was fine then, but we dont have that tractor anymore, so the 8930 was the only choice.

    yes thats a 2003 Gleaner R-75 with all the bells and whisles! We like the machines. We also have a 98 R-72. The main reason we run them, is the one guy that works for us was a gleaner mechanic for about 10 years before he came to work on the farm, so we have our own personal mechanic and dont have to make those service calls.

    I waxed it using Meguiars, except for the top of the hood, I used turtel wax, just as a test to see which one was better, but they both seemed to be about the same. We'll see which one last longer though. No that is not my dads farm equipment. I am a full time hired man on a farm with no relation to the guy. He lets me use the shop and equipment as if it where my own though. I do snow removal for a compleatly differnt company. The owner of the company dosent have anything to do with the snow removal end of things, so another guy and I run that end of the business for him. And that also is not my company or equipment. I guess Im just lucky to work for people that have very nice equipment. So, no I do not want a cookie or a metal, I just know that some people like seeing pictures of our equipment, as do I of other peoples equipment.
