Re: Snow Tonight/Tomorrow
I'm hoping my area close to Cape Cod will only get the "slushy accumulation to 1" predicted,then turn to rain by daylight Friday..
I'm not swell prepped for snow removal yet--only one tractor with a plow I could use now,and I'd have to put the plow on my pickup and see if it'll work another season,last winter the hoses were getting brittle and the pump seemed weak ,the blade lifted up slower than usual..
One of my other tractors I put a scoop/plow on needs a winch contactor, to lift and lower the blade ,and my walk behind snowblower is buried in my shed way out back,haven't used or started in in 2-3 years,last time I did the rubber friction disc drive was so worn I had to push it..the 2 stroke "joke" MTD walk behind blower I have hasn't been run in as many years also..thing is more work than shoveling..
The snowblower for my Sears Suburbans had the auger chain come off at full rpms last time I used it--and it wrapped around the drive sprocket on the gear box and bent the shaft in it ,and blew a chunk out of the shaft's bore in the gear case...
R.I.P. unless I come across a good used gearbox..and I wasn't very impressed with its performance really,even after putting rubber belting on the auger paddles either..not sure I'll bother trying to get it repaired..it too now resides in the shed,and probably will stay there..I'd be lucky to be able to get it back on a tractor too,with my back killing me--thing is a heavy s-o-b..
