Just got two inches in Perry County PA

Recommended Posts

 

Yup. It doesn't take long to catch it in this kind of weather. When I first got my B-100 back in 1993, I couldn't wait for snow. The bug has never gone away. Now that I have a 416-H with a 48" blade, it's gotten worse. However, this morning's 3/4" of light, powdery stuff was easily dispatched with my new Stihl BR700 backpack blower.

About 3" here in Felton and still snowing.  I enjoyed about 45 minutes of seat time on the 312H clearing a couple driveways this afternoon. IMG_0052.JPG.09a9a38f3bbfad231391c11451b160d6.JPG

We only got an inch and a half here in Middletown, NJ. Couldn't do much with that. Really waiting to put the snowblower and cab into action.

:text-coolphotos:         No snow here, but I did finish picking up the limbs and twigs that came down from the last snow here.         :ychain:

Does he need a headlight bucket for lights?

He hasn't mentioned it but maybe some LED lights would be nice. He has no outdoor lighting for his driveway.

'Bout two inches here, Eastern PA. The snow was quickly dispersed with my backpack ECHO.

Horses are ready and the Grandsons wanna "Ride 'em cowboy".

Wheel base versus weight distribution , BRF...the 1054 is a mid-length frame and known for great traction .

The 1054 is a bit heavier and the narrow ag tires result in more pounds per square inch of tire pressure on the ground.

My 1930 Dodge with the 4.5 X21" tires on wooden spoke wheels was best  car ever in the snow.  If I did get stuck, I just wound some old cloths line rope thru the spokes and around the tires .

He should have beaten the guy with the D - put some weights and chains on that thing and with the 56" blade he should be able to bulldoze that idiot neighbor's house flat.....

 

I've had other folks do the same thing - ask if I'd sell one really cheap , I just tell them to go try and find one for that price . Around here , all they want is the deep pan Kohler for their JD and CC equipment - isn't going to happen and they get told so in very few words which I wouldn't repeat here . Only had a few that knew WH and appreciated what they are - most everyone else is pretty clueless until they see the work they can perform . Heavy equipment Operators seem to get it - my brother in law is still amazed at what such a "small" machine can do around the property...lol .
