    when i got the call 8 weeks ago that my dad SIR HENRY had some heart troubles. i just left the KINGDOM with nothing ready for winter. the poor 922 loader was left out side because some junk ended up in his winter shed. i removed the batteries and let them warm up for 2 days in the heated shop. then this morning i went out and tarped in the engine and placed a 30 000 btu pan heater under the engine. 2 hours later i had the batteries in and the machine up and running. i have done this enough times over the 15 years of ownership that i make it look easy, LOL
    now the loader is parked in his shed after all the snow was plowed in the KINGDOM.

    I owned a 922b for about 5 years...really did a nice job on snow....was a bear to start if it was real cold though....if temp dropped below zero you had to keep it inside or no chance to start it. Heard some of them had small pony starter motors...mine didn't :mad:

    finally caved in and bought a new machine...but still got decent money for that Cat 5 years later.

    kinda miss the old girl....
