New to forum

Hi.
I am a new member, so I thought I would post a couple of pics. This is a 1970 24 inch 10995 my father bought new. We used it into the 90s and then installed an 8 HP Briggs, we then used it into the next century, we retired it when it just got old and worn. Around ten years ago I did a major overhaul on it and added a few mods.

I bead blasted and painted all the bits, installed new bushings, shafts, friction disk, repacked bearings, welded cracks and worn levers, etc.

Then I installed 15" Sno-Hog tires, did the impeller rubber, 1/2 in belt with a 3" pulley on the motor, tall chute, rerouted the chute control to be more ergonomically friendly, and welded steel from telephone pole cross arm braces onto the skids. My driveway will wear out before they do!
Its been chugging along ever since, starts second pull, my driveway is 400 feet that opens to forty feet wide at the garage. Since these pics were taken I added drift cutters.

I am in the middle of rebuilding a 1965 10M6D that i picked up cheap, I'll post pics when it is done.


Thanks,
John

Welcome hemiguy,

Nice looking machine. Her is a photo of mine I just restored. Right down to new decals, and corrected the chute lever as well, and trying the poly wheel skid shoes, they were only 20.00 a pair.

How do you like the rolling skid shoes?

I finished the 1965 10M6D. I was not able to read the serial number from the tractor, but I discovered a model and serial number just under the chute opening.
7-10M Serial 82097, which makes it a late 1965 I believe.



I made no modifications except the 15inch sno-hog tires. The original tires were rotted and the tube was coming out.

Everything that would fit in the cabinet was bead blasted, primed and painted. The bucket and augers D/Aed, primed and painted.
Auger bushings were fine, as is the gearbox, just new oil.

New axle bushings, friction disk, shaft, de-greased repacked bearings etc.
New auger bearing, scraper, I used stainless hardware where possible.
New carburetor, fuel lines.
Just need a few stickers and that's it.
Took about three weeks working off and on.


Thanks

@hemiguy,

You did an outstanding job … you can take a lot of pride in your work.

I totally love the Poly Roll Skids, put them on just about all my machines .. they are on sale for 20.00 a pair, well built, and the machine moves around great.

I might make one suggestion, grab yourself a wooden dowel, drill out the center, place it over the chute crank rod, and cap it with a locking push cap, which you can get at any hardware store, as you can see in one of my restore photos.
