Plowing Snow

Postby Mr Ziffel » Wed Mar 06, 2013 5:24 pm

Just finished plowing snow with the Cub. It was the heavy ,sticky, slushy kind that turns into huge hunks of ice at night,and rips off car mufflers and other parts.
I bought the cub after a huge snowfall a few years ago and I don't get to use her much. She gets tinkered with and the battery
stays charged . I just got out of the hospital for heart problems (fine now) and I am sure she just kept me from going back again.
:) Great little tractors.

Yep, snowplowing is ONE of my favorites. Glad you were able to put the Cub to good use.

Yup, btdt. Sure was nice to be able to get back on Ellie after the by-pass surgery. Wish we had some snow I could plow.

Glad you are better and back in the saddle.

And yes they are great tractors. My wife's uncle has had a Cub for well over 30 years now, uses it to plow the garden and cultivate etc. Says Cub's can't do much .. it has been a lotta fun showing him exactly what a Cub can do :!: :{_}: :lol:
