Great pics! I remember when my son and I each had a plow machine set-up and we would tag team the driveway. He has moved out and now lives 45 minutes away with his sweetie in a condo. I really miss those times...enjoy every minute of it Glenn!

Down in South Jersey we only got about 2" but it was a couple of degrees above freezing so it was like pushing a giant Slurpee.

Just south of Allentown, PA, 10+ inches of heavy wet snow. Mostly wet cold slush.

The '90 520-8 shoved the junque off the driveways. :handgestures-thumbupright:

 

Boys have their own Horses and homes, the seat time was all mine. :ROTF:

Looks like that C175 needs a wider plow to play with... though that might cut down on seat time!

Am I seeing a rubber scraper on the blade Glenn?      If so, any details on material, efficiency, etc.?

Ed, very observant. Yes it is a rubber scraper blade. The material is unknown to me, I will get you soms close up pictures. Seems maybe it was a mat of some sort. When I bought the blade the original owner said he put it on a few years back, maybe 5 or 6. It wears very very well, and considering the age and condition of my asphalt driveway. Frankly I thought it would be shot. But not so. It also works/cleans VERY well, barely shows additional wear on it. My driveway has the trees roots under, various patches and wear spots, thats why I thought it would be eaten up. I prefer it over the metal scraper bar.

Thanks Glenn,  I have a 4 X 3/8 X 48"  piece of corded rubber that I could put on my blade but I was afraid if I would just sandwich it between the existing scraper bar and the blade itself, it may bend back due to too much overhang.   It looks like that is how yours is installed though.  I was thinking I would get another piece of steel and mount the rubber scraper in front of the steel scraper, but if yours works OK maybe I'll try it behind the scraper bar.   But then with the lack of snow we have been getting, it may be several years before I could test it.

If you get a chance. a close up end view of the scraper bar assembly would be appreciated.

Every time I see photos like this, I'm reminded why I moved to Arizona!  ;)   I grew up in the northeast, so those photos are familiar ground to me.

The C-175 is a great looking machine. It's the fins on the hood I think. Stylish. We got about 5" of slush here in Beautiful downtown Brackney. No thunder though. Nice driveway.

Until the snow blows in your face for a hour at 0 degrees. Throw in 30 m.p.h. wind too!🤣

                           Nuther  winter calendar shot there Paul.   Is it legal to have that much fun up there in the Catskills?  :)

                          Maybe Wheel Horse should include the hat and gloves as required items in their snow blower installation kits.

 

 

 

I just got back from my local Toro dealer where I got the last remaining official Wheel Horse Snow Blower attire.

Now If I can get this cab off this 520 I should be qualified to join the Pau's  @pfrederi real man's cabless blower club.

Any you sissies with heated cabs wanna join, get them cabs off.
