I replaced the scraper on my Toro Powerlite.
It took longer to get the tools out than to do it. 3 small bolts.
three small carrage bolts, even the ccr's are the same

a friend gave me a new plastic starter cover and i was out in the garage earlier seeing how it would fit on the toro 826. well its too long and will need to be cut to fit. i also found the right size bolts to mount the starter but i'm not sure if they are heavy duty enough for the job

went to costco this morning, from there i went to my mom's to share what i got from costco. did some vacuuming for her and took out the garbage before heading home. got on the board for a minute then thought about all the debris in my neighbors front yard from the tree falling the other day so i went out and cleaned her driveway and waklway as well as my own so if it snows i'm not debris from the tree

I checked over my NOMA Blowa. Made sure the chute would turn. I spayed the gear with WD-40 yesterday, when it was warm. Got some gas for it, too. Got some Kerosene for the heaters. I sprayed the roof rake, too. Can't hurt. We are supposed to get 6-10 inches tonight. It's 18 degrees out, right now, so I know it will move easily. In that kind of cold, I know I won't. I'm hoping the wind is strong enough to blow it off the roof.

Worked on a drain set up for my basement laundry room sink. Sheesh, I wish it would snow, these inside jobs are getting boring.

Stayed home all day trying to thaw our water so we can get water to the house. I rather fight a frozen auger shaft than a frozen water line.
