Nice job on the paint and accessories, those are needed if you're blowing snow in your neck of the woods!

So I spent an hour last night pushing her to the limits, I came in half frozen.... but happy, blower worked as well as Ive ever seen it, tires on both ends have good traction, the only thing that wasn't perfect is that one headlight is dimmer than the other, hopefully just a bulb replacement will cure that.

Far too many huge hard drifts here this week for a little tractor like this to do much good but I expect there will be plenty of opportunity to use it over the winter clearing the walkways that my other toys cant fit thru.

The tractor was given to me by an uncle in the late '80s and he had a plywood/plexiglass cab on it back then, it started to fall apart a few years ago but I intend to make another one using sheet aluminum and lexan but that might not be until next winter. For now Im calling this project done.

...a few pics that were taken during the cleanup process...

The fenders that were on it were probably made by my uncle to support the homebuilt cab, I dont think Bolens actually put fenders on the RaM until '58 or maybe they were optional.

They came with a factory snow blower but this one is not factory.
