    Ready for snow in the North East

    Maybe you need this one to go with that big walk behind... then you'll definitely be ready.

    36" snowblower on a 310-8

    Yes it fits into the front attach-a-matic, then you need the lift tube (approximately 3.5' long) and the "flag" that pins onto the center rockshaft

    Ready for snow in the North East

    Tire chain troubleshooting help please

    ...see the missing cotter pin and shiny attaching pin end...also those silver/argent/grey wheels look to be factory for a 312... @WH Rick if you have an Advance Auto or AutoZone nearby I would recommend a set of 5/16-1/2" thick wheel spacers to help with the clearance issues...https://shop.advanceautoparts.com/p/mr-gasket-wheel-spacers-2371/17360026-P

    Correct way to mount lift flag for snow blower

    It goes in the black rockshaft hole above the rear hitch cable clevis I have pictured, Jeff.

    Front end loader

    But that very same swept forward front axle can be fitted to your 141 ,even the gear reduction steering eBay and even @A-Z Tractor has the parts you would want/need.

    Electric lift for dozer blade

    110% , that's how I felt and still do when I went from my CC 106 to the 520H 20 years ago.

    Electric lift for dozer blade

    @richmondred01, put it on his 520-8 maybe he'll chime in to help give you perspective, personally I'm a hydro/hydralic fan... Like this Eric?

    New 520H Tachometer

    I'm not a guru by any means but I believe it gets its signal from the voltage regulator because when the VR is bad the tach does not work also on the Onan the coil fires both cylinders simutaniously, maybe Kyle @fast88pu or @cleat could cast some light on the subject.

    New Rescuing Old

    Looks like the "Happy Hooker" finally got hooked, I know what you mean about landmarks back home in WV we have a fella that does some rather awesome/cool scrap iron art pieces, and there was the local tow truck 69-70 red Chevy C60 (and it's "infamous" driver that had a few more notable tow rigs before he passed away a few years back)...a little story from about 18+ years ago I was heading to work one afternoon and noticed him ahead and the red Chevy towing (I believe a crew cab F250-350) when I heard a LOUD boom over the custom dual 12" sub stereo in my '95 S10 it was one of the tires on the tow truck had blown it started to sway then next thing I knew it was heading over the road bank towards the river as it was going over the bank the F-series unhooked from the cradle and escaped serious damage as the C60 slid down the bank on its side, seem like a long time but all this happened in a matter of seconds, as I pulled over to check on "Sammy" (who was hair lipped) he was crawling out the passenger side door asking "what the hell just happened", that was the last time the C60 was the the tow truck, after it was retrieved it sat in the corner of the lot where it had towed so many others and as far as I know it's still there.

    Western PA biggest snowfall for the year.

    I have a real snow plow for "Elvis" if the FEL and horses can't keep up ...

    416h is it a keeper?

    Eric, all the way up through the xi series(plastic bumper and grill) and most definitely the 3,4,&500 series Wheel Horse(TORO) have full metal hoods maybe just a few more safety switches but definitely just the younger brothers of the B-80 and C160 no plastic/fiberglass hoods like JD or CCC.
