Tell you what Rick, my knees are killing me and I’m constantly thinking about the power angle setup you have, especially as I’m plowing ;).
I’ve got the ram and mounts, the tractor has the auxiliary control valve. All I have to do is mock it up and figure what hoses I’ll need.
The plow will need some restoration work with a welder as many of the pivot points are worn badly. This winter is a good shakedown test to see what works and what doesn’t.
I’ve had some folks take pics of me plowing but haven’t seen any of them yet. Maybe my mug broke the cameras. :lol:

Ok, the second set of rear weights are on.
:surrender:
I’d like to say that was fun, not even close. Weighted center with two rear weights was more than I could handle and had to use the engine hoist. It took me an extra hour of wasted time trying to mount the second wright to the inside of the rim, you can but the weight hits the little cover at the top of the final when it turns so I guess you can’t. :roll:
I took it thru unplowed snow and pushed back the snowbanks to make room for tomorrow’s snow.
The extra weight is better, not dramatically better but better. We’ll see what it does tomorrow.

Sigh...good job, Mike. Hopefully it will have been worth it tomorrow! Store up some heat before you have to go out!

Shouldn’t be too bad, the snow is supposed to last only 4 hours this time and though they said 2 days ago we were getting 5-8” now the night before it’s 1-3”. I guess there are ratings in scaring people with a bad forecast.
I’m thankful it all happens during the day so I don’t have to go out in the middle of the night to clear the snow off the shelterlogic sheds.

They changed the forecast again, 3-5” :roll: and we’ve got that much already.

Ended up with 9". Packed down and with the Tuesday storm it would be too much for the cub. Had to use the SC and even that was a little slippery. Gunna have to get the FEL to clear out the big piles on the drive end to make room for the next 3 that are forecasted.

4-5” in Stafford Springs.
Nice and dry too, so it rolled over.
A bit nippy when I started at 7:00am - 10*F
