Smile Tighten Your Wheels

Finally got some measurable snow here in London ,Ontario.
The trusty 1978 Ariens 924024 ran like a charm ,until I noticed 3 studs/ wheel bolt were missing on the left wheel.
The blower had a awful wobble.
Lucky I had a few spares,cause I won't find them till spring.

I had repainted the wheels and forgot to tighten in the fall,won't do that again.

Ariens 924024 8 hp 32” now a 10 hp
Ariens 910008 7 hp 24”

That's reminds of the story from comedian Ron White about when he took his van to Sears Automotive and they forgot to tighten his lug nuts,and one of his wheels fell off..I used to work for Sears auto years ago,I Remember a few techs forgot to tighten lug nuts and customers wheels came off.Not Good..

Or you are doing an oil change and forget the oil drain plug.
At about three quarts going back in you start to see a lake forming at the front and sides of the vehicle ......

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
