Here's the scenario. Each fall I sweep leaves out of the lawn and dump them next to the garden to rake them in for burning or tilling them under. This year I got less than half way done with cleaning up the leaves before the fall rains came and then everything froze up and the rest of the leaves laid soaking wet in the yard.:fing20:
That is until last week, the weather was perfect, we hadn't had any snow in a month and the leaves are dry in the lawn. I take advantage of the situation and take my 446, with the snowblower still attached cause I'm a bit lazy, out to the shed and hook up the sweeper. I get about 6-7 good size basket fulls out of the lawn and I'm satisfied that it is clean enough till spring. But then I look at the garden and it is surrounded by these heaps of leaves and my rake...well its all the way over there in the shed.
But wait, i think to myself...I have this snowcaster on the front of this tractor and since we haven't gotten any snow I haven't used it. It was decided. That snowcaster made quick and easy work of getting thise leaves into the garden....right up to the point where the paddle got jammed up on a hunk of wood about as big around as my forearm and stalled the tractor.:banghead3
I know there are gonna be some folks that say it is abuse or mistreatment of equipment but since I can fix it I'm not affraid to break it. With that being said...I know I'm not the only [email protected]
$$ to do this either.
As soon as I figure out how to get the video off of ny phone and on to here I'll post it.
take care all.
