Whats your plan for the next snow season?

Well the time for snow is getting closer and closer every day. Show us what you are planing on using in the up coming season.

I am planing on running this

dragging this behind it.


I am going to fab up some brackets to hook the blade to the 3 point hitch on the MTD 990.

So thats my plan. Whats yours?

1977 MTD 990 with 3pt hitch
1974 MTD 990 with 3pt hitch, 42'' mower, soon to be modified push blade
2006 X520 with 54'' mower, HDAP's front and rear
1991 Toro Wheel Horse 244-H qith 38'' mower and mulch kit (grampa's tractor)
1978 Sears GT 11 with 42" mower vin# 917.257020
Troy Bilt 21in SP mower with bagger

Well, considering it was 92° here today, and humid as all get out, I'd like to be pushing some snow again I'll be using the SS16 again. Still has the snow blower attached!

Good looking set up bwdbrn1. I bet that 16 horse Onan twin eats the snow like it is not even there.

She does pretty well for an old gal. I need to get the valves adjusted, but too many other things to work on now, and just too blasted hot to be out in the garage for very long.

Its been way to hot here to be out in the shop working. Got to put a set of points and condenser on a Tecumseh powered chipper shredder, got to rebuild the engine in the 990 and figure out some electrical gremlins on my Wheelhorse.

Plans

Planning to do some repainting on the front left, going to do some rebuilding and repainting the back 2. When done with that, should be ready for almost anything.

I'll say. Get three of your friends together, and you could clear a pretty good swath!

Looks like a great set up for any amount of snow. I think if you get some friends to run a blower you will be done in no time.

Haven't had much time to think of winter yet, but I am eager to try my two new snowblowers.

I guess winter will be here in a few months, but I'm still enjoying the remainder of summer.
