This showed up in my Christmas stocking this morning, a complete surprise, thanks to the conspiratorial talents of our two sons.
The tractor is my father's 1965 Farmall 706 diesel, that we adopted from the home farm last summer. We've been fitting it out with front-end loader (same vintage) and other improvements all fall. The boys decided it just had to be properly rigged with a snowblower and found this 8-foot monster up in New Brunswick. The blower had a previous life, but a fairly gentle one. She spins up to full 540 revs without a shudder.
My snow shoveling days might not be completely over, but should be drastically reduced
Merry Christmas everyone
