    Snow Blowers

    My father asked for one mounted on an elephant. His birthday is coming up. Does anyone know where I might find such a thing?

    You can't design one in SU?

    Really Dave, why are you hogging all that snow? Shouldn't you be sending some down to Don Taylor?

    Man, that's a lot of snow you've got there, Dave.

    Thanks for the reminder. This weekend I've got a bunch of oranges and lemons to pick, I need to fertilize both lawns, and it's the time of year for heavy pruning of the rose bushes (even though they're still blooming).

    I never thought I would say this, but I wish it would STOP snowing. I have yet to see the sun this week, and they are predicting snow every day until Monday. We are not getting a lot, just 5-6 inches at a time, but this is the third time in three days I had to plow my driveway. We are getting 5 inched to death here in Maine.
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"

    Steve, that snowplow looks like it doesn't know if it's coming or going. I guess all that matters is that you know where it's going, huh?

    I've been using this 50 year old snowblower all winter. At 7 feet,its a bit big for my tractor, but clears a spot pretty quick.

    I haven't known if I was coming or going for years.


    Blade swivels 360 degrees so I can pull or push.


    I'd really rather have a 3 point hitch snowblower. We had a 7' Arps snowblower on one of our tractors when I still farmed....it was sweeeet!

    That's what I was guessing. I used to enjoy watching a good operator run a grading tractor back when I was in the earthwork business. I used to see a lot of Ford tractors with box graders doing small building pads and yard grading. Definitely an art to running one.
