Will it still be there?
LOL....... funny guy!!! Although it is supposed to be above zero for the next few days.
You mean the wind did not blow it away?
Looking clear now. This is what I got overnight I should have plowed the parking lot yesterday afternoon when it was soft and raining. It froze overnight and I did it at 6 am, the snow piled up ok but the ice doesn't make me happy. It's going to warm up later in the week so it will melt anyway.
Nope, it leaves it in piles called drifts. None of them were more than 18" deep this time, at least none of the ones I had to move. Just got back in, 3 hours with a 57 HP 72" snowblower and the yard's ready for the next round.
I remember those piles called drifts. Its all in getting them piles to end up where you want them and not where they think they want to be.
I have made major improvements by hauling out several pickup loads of pine tree branches last summer, (or non-winter season, didn't seem much like summer up here), and the drive has just small drifts instead of the previous massive ones I'd get my plow truck stuck in........
That sounds like an improvement. Did the trees get planted on the wrong side of the drive? At home dad put a wind brake in when us kids were little. The trees grewup and did a good job of breaking the wind but the snow would always make it threw the trees just far enough to stop on the south side of them.
Yeah, Dad planted 'em 50 years ago but wasn't much for trimming them. I finally got the energy to make the attempt and achieved a major reduction in driveway drifts. Still have a lot of drive to clear but it really helps to not have a three foot high by thirty foot deep drift across the twelve foot wide driveway......
Morning everyone, we had a dry day yesterday 52 degrees, watched both football games, another dry day today, taking a drive to Longview Wa for lunch, rain returns tonight.
If you were not so far away lunch sounds good. We may get into the teens today with a dusting of snow.
That would take a while to remove with the garden tractor and blade. The worst ours has been is 14 inches and 700 feet. That took two days. Some day I need to get the snow blower back together. If we got three foot drifts here people would be totally lost.
This is the spot we're discussing a couple years ago, right before I got my wife out to work the truck while I pulled it back with the Farmall M..... It was sooooo high centered. So this was the next day, once the weather got a bit nicer. See the shovel handle next to the blower?? That's to chop the snow bank enough that I could keep the blower from climbing on top of the snow bank. And a couple years later, a new toy. The yellow shaded area is essentially what I keep clear, the tracks in the field is where I pushed the snow when I was using the Farmall and a 7 foot bucket - before I got fed up with freezing my nads off on a steel seat in the wind.
I like that toy. Cab and heat got to be nicer than the old M.
Oh yeah, was one of the mandatory features.......
A couple of guy's I know have skid steers with pusher buckets.
You got a picture of that farmall? We got our Grandpa's that we're gonna try to have fixed by the time his birthday rolls around, as something to remember him by. Looks like this guy, except Gramps got one custom setup with wide front track and a bucket/hydro setup https://media.sandhills.com/img.axd...=CWTA+aFJJ776lE0Ru5b72O7yBxcHoxIm13N5iiMo2bE= that and Grandpa's tractor is worse for wear, since he sure didn't baby it........
Can't find a good one, they're all in the background of other pics. Not so new as your Grandpa's.
There was a time that they just were not worth much. If they ran and did the job just was not much reason to invest much into them.
That's not my Grandpa's, just a stock pic off google. Grandpa's looks way worse for wear. His is also custom, so it makes finding out what exact year and model a pain. I loved that tractor though, spent my whole life around it. Definitely pulled more legwork around the property than any of us can ever imagine. Grandpa had this neat trick with the front blade, if he needed to make a tight turn, he'd drop the blade, pick up the front end, and just spin the wheel.
