Yeah it was up for a week with no action then that other guy came along right at the last minute.

My fault though for not paying attention... Laptop's half buried right now or I woulda had it up in the galley whilst cooking.

Ah well, we live to fight another day. Arrrrr...

About the chute and spout lights; Pronovost and others have them mounted in metal 12 volt incandescent light housings And I am unsure if they use a hex head or carriage bolt for the chute and a probably a nylock nut for the bulb base.

An LED light bar would have no issues with the impact vibration of snow being ejected from the impeller though and you could put a small single row light bar on it.

You would definitely want to use amber snow goggles because you will be snow blind-been there done that in daylight and pitch dark with the snow blower on the JD LA115.

I do have a chute light for it, but haven't gotten the 'roundtuit' to install yet.

I usually wear my amber-tinted driving glasses when I'm blowing at night, otherwise my dark sunglasses. It does get bright.

Have to admit, that is a heck of a machine. If a guy lives where there is that much snow, it makes a lot of sense. I'm beyond jealous!

Thanks. Got ripped-off this year, she's only been out twice... 20 minutes up the hill in Hakuba they've had over 16 feet so far this season. With the mountains ya just never know...

Only February, might still get lucky.

I can't empathize enough that you're not really using it as much as you should. How about you get a nice Honda and crate that one up and sell it to me ??

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

Well you don't have to have mine, do you?

There's more to be had, just say the word... and send $$.

So cool to see that monster blower Ronin!


This week a Yanmar YSR 1650DX came out for sale in Norway. Is it anything like your machine?
