"Snow Stories" - Winter 2014/2015.

Snow is beginning to fly in some places..
This thread can be the general "talking about snow and storms" thread for this winter!

I'm about as ready as I can get.
  • Path Pro for the light snow falls on the driveway - check
  • 30" 2 stage for the big snow falls on the driveway - check
  • 1800 power curve for the deck - check
  • Toro Power Shovel for the deck steps - check (not sure how it will work, but gotta try something, shoveling deck steps blows)

I will have my driveway, the elderly neighbor lady's drive, and added to the list for this season, I think, will be the foreclosed drive across the street from me, as I have been mowing the lawn since mid June.

2014 Ariens Deluxe 30 #921032 w/Armor skids, LED's, Hand warmers.
2015 Ariens Path Pro SS-21 # 938033
2010 Toro 1800 Power curve (electric, for the deck)
2009 Toro Power Shovel (electric, for deck steps)

I have to mow my lawn on Monday...:-) . Haven't even looked at my snowblowers that I actually use; my Toro 521 and Toro Power Clear.
Has anybody else noticed that it seems like about 99% of the members of this forum are from Canada or the northeastern U.S.? Anybody here from western snow country? Yes, some also from Mich, Wisc, and Minn but that's about it

Staten Island,NY here. Just finished a Predator repower on my 2008 TB Storm 2410 - Primary Machine. Picking up a 1987 Toro 521 on Monday to be my backup machine and the unit I use for cleaning houses away from home base. $75 for the Toro. Needs carb work but that seems to be about it. Thinking of doing a repower on it

Joe, it kinda hurts, when you throw MI, WI, and MN in as "that's about it."
I gotta mow hopefully 2 more times this year also. We've had good frost and slowed the growth, but it keeps coming back. We put the boat up and one car. Looking forward to snow

Where do you live, J.T.? Frost already? Scot is seeing flurries. I'm still riding my motorcycle. Usually quit in mid Nov. Getting too old and achey to ride year round.

Still have mowing and leaves to do on Long Island. Hoping to enjoy my old snapper walk behinds a few more times before they get fogged and put away for the winter.
Have some new decals coming for my old '62 and have to make the rounds to my Dads and Bro in laws to get the MTD and Toro prepped.

Last snowblowers I had that had Tecumseh engines on them both engines suffered catastrophic failures. First one was a 2 cycle engine that started racing and wouldn't shut down. That one seized solid. My second Tecumseh blew a rod. Was running it cleaning some snow when I heard a loud ringing sound. Took off the piston cover and was able to push the piston cap down. So no more tecumseh engines for me
