Got a couple of photos, hood is off, but you can get the idea. Not the best photos. This one is a great runner! And it uses the same oil filters as the Lincoln.
The 'snowdozer' is taller than a Cub 54.
I got the Cub to replace the other L (LI) for mowing chores... this one was too good of a deal to pass up. Has a sickle bar mower, snowblower and dozer blade. It is a 8 speed model with electric start.

Rigged for winter now, dual wheels, chains and the evil looking snowblower on it.

Love the "Edward Scissorhands" snowblower! It will really gobble up some snow and scare the neighbors to death.

I did do a little painting on the L8 and the chute on Mr. Sissorhands. It does run like a top. It does look better with the hood on, but I didn't take any photos of it 'dressed'. Looks pretty mean with the duals, chains and hood on it! I do like the red on the older Gravely and should have just used that instead of the pumpkin (Minnie Mo?) orange.

Someone (not me) managed to pick up a brick with it. Stalled it out, but otherwise no apparent damage. I am confident that it would have spit it out the chute if the brick had broken and made it into the second stage!

The guy at the dump saved me a later version of the snowblower, but it seems to be jammed up in the gearbox and I have not had a chance or the inclination to look at it yet. Easier to do when it a couple of hunded miles away. I heard from a good source that they changed the ratio on the second stage from 8:1 to 4:1 and it doesn't clog as easily.

Tell ya what, it is nearly an immovable beast with that snowblower mounted.
