Haven't used my blowers yet

What a weak season so far in southern New England. I haven't even had to shovel snow never mind blow it. Hopefully it turns around later this month and into February/March.

Time to go to my shed and run the blowers to get rid of the fuel in them.

Only 2 working storms so far.

Heading out now to get rid of 3" of EOD and to clean the shady side of the garage but the rest of the 12,000 square feet can have another layer of winter pavement.

well I got to test the 521E with new belts and the ccr 3000E. I'm happy with the 521E but want to add an impeller kit. the 3000E seem to be working well but it was pieced together for 2450 and 3000 parts and a 3000E motor. I want to make sure it doesn't vibrate apart, I did loose a bolt that holds one side of one of the paddle on. the next two stage out of the garage will be the powershift if there is as much snow as we got today

I got to try the blower I bought in August last week with the over 1 inch of snow we got here in CT. Blower ran great, but I'm sure it was hungry for more.
The waiting game begins!

I've used my new-to-me blower about three times. Once on 6" of snow, once on EOD, and once last night on 3" of wet, heavy snow. It's been cold, but not much snow for us here.

We got 3 inches in Nov and 7 inches last week so I feel fortunate to have been able to run my Honda and Ariens a little.Wish I owned these machines last winter!Last winter was the last straw of shoveling and now we don’t get hardly any darn snow… after buying two machines that’s how it go’s I guess…

Still nothing here. We keep getting a dusting to 1 inch of snow, enough to tease me but that's about it. Sucks.
