That time of year for snow equipment pics

I`d like to find one of these...

Image result for pretty girl shovelling snow

If you tell it to change to a dishwasher stand far enough back it can't hit or throw the shovel attachment at you.  I've slowly learned all comments or communication should be made from far away so you can get a feel for the temperament of it.

Think I'd have to agree,  all that powdery snow getting sucked into the radiator would probably freeze it into an icy mess.  Using the snow blower on the Cub Cadet was just slightly better than a #14 aluminum scoop shovel, all the blowing snow was terrible. The blade on the SH works really nice, sometimes wish it would angle but that would make the blade/loader/tractor so much longer.  Only been one night I was not real happy cleaning the driveway. Was getting pelted with half freezing rain and half ice pellets.

I think you will like the 2+2 on the snow blower. The radiator will sure as heck be W-A-Y farther forward than on your 5288.

I take it off when using it, the snow goes through, when it sits here at the house during the storm plugged in(Sheds are not at my house, 1/4 mile away) the powder we can get here I would think would go right through the screen intake and lay in there, with the block heater on, I worry some might melt, and make ice somewhere that wouldn't be good.  So I throw a tarp on it.  Not sure if its needed or not, but don't want to find out.  2+2 can sit here outside with no worry.  Our lane drifts so I try it make sure its here, instead of being over in the shed, because I don't really like trudging through the snow to get to it in the cold wind.

Old plow needs some attention. Got a decent buy on one to use for now but have to adapt to the hook up. Hangs up on the (22) front weight bracket and the back end hooks to the front of the drawbar on a boxcar Magnum. It hasn't been mounted yet this year, used the wheel loader so far

What would be the difference if the wind blows the snow in front of a radiator on a 1486 or thru the top of screen on an 88?   Just curious, wouldn't it all be the same effect?

I don't see that much snow getting piled up on a 1486 and it started up without the front being cleaned off?  Hard to dig the powder we get here out of the FAF?...................I don't think 18" of fluffy snow laying down in there and the tractor starting up sucking the snow through would be good.  18" of snow getting sucked through on a 1486 unless it was parked toward the wind in a blizzard?

I never left the tarp off to find out, but can't think that would be good on the 5*88's so I covered it.  Won't have that issue on the 6588, but it may not snow enough here this year to even need it.

That's make sense to me.  While it's sitting there over night I can see it filling up with snow.

This is pile of snow in Fargo ND. Their biggest pile not their only pile though. 14,000 truckloads so far. They said after snowfalls it’s about 1200 loads a day in pile. The tall end is 75 feet it has been taller before but much later in the year. About once every 10 years they need to bring dozers in all over to push snow back off roads. Have even seen national guard deployed to push snow back on interstate.

Snow movers for today. 5288 with 80 IH snow blower, Farmall DX 26 and one of our 1466's with the box scraper. First time we have moved snow this winter. Also have the 2350 on a 1566 and a Case 465 skid loader. Five machines and only three drivers. Hope we never need all five at once!

Are your roads the same height as the fields?  For years our county did a grading plan.  Roads have a nice ditch and are mostly higher then the fields so it blows clear.  If we have any that look close to that our graders make quick work if 

It really varies. There's a lot of small hills and cuts in the territory I work, and our right of way is only 33' from the center of the road so it does leave much room to push any slopes back on a hill, and some the the small hills are so steep that the road was cut through to lower the grade. Not only that, but the one township I work in has money but only likes to spend it on idiotic things, not maintaining the roads at all. It all depends on the township itself on the local gravel roads for how much money they spend on them. Most will remove the berms and regravel every few years, except the one I work in. But it's 50/50 woods and field, so I get a bit of variety that way.

Got an 8' new idea blower this year. Put it on the 766. So much better than pushing snow with a loader. Added the LEDs on the blower because I end up clearing early/late and couldn't see past the cloud half the time. 

Cleared some drifts this evening, snow was dense, and used most of the horsies the old girl has. Definitely have been getting the carbon out of the pipe this year.

Here's my set ups for this year. Used each of them once this season for the total of 4 - 5" total of snow we have had so far. After 3 0 plus years of using open station tractors of all sizes, I really could get used to the Jeep to plow! Only problem is that I am done in 15 minutes. It only took me 38 years to get my first Jeep with a plow, I have been wanting one since 1976 when the airport next door to where I grew up was selling a 1970 CJ-5 V6 with a Meyer's plow setup. This is my second Jeep, and for my areas it works great.

I do love plowing with a Cub Cadet, they have the geometry just right, full throttle, full speed on the hydro with about 4" of snow and it just rolls off the blade!IMG_2407.thumb.JPG.a617ce4c0043fcea63226906cef4e982.JPGIMG_2397.thumb.JPG.5b66680567200493ebdf9ef187481360.JPG1091641090_19JAN20229.thumb.JPG.47422bddbf6fb1bb06571259d44c8f7b.JPG233295451_19JAN20227.thumb.JPG.f085d7853b2d5acd96e081e5e4500e24.JPG
