Shop heat set up is doing good. Below freezing 30's out side and I found that running the propane heater on the low (1 burner) setting and placing the fan forced 1500W heater on top really helps circulate the heat. The propane 5 gallon tank lasts 5-6 days like this. Keeps the shop comfortable at 72*. Will see what happens later this week when we get into the 20's.
I wrapped the pipes and insulated the outside water filter when we installed it, The house installers didn't insulate the water pipe run under the house, so before they installed the underpinning I went to town and bought 25' of slip on insulation. The installers said they never insulate the pipes in this area. I expect there are some frozen pipes out there, but not mine!
Decided to give the old Girl a once over in case She is really needed the next couple days. Added oil to the auger and lowered the shoes 1/2" to hopefully stay out of the dirt. Gave the engine a look also. I'll pull the rear blade off Hulk II tomorrow and have it ready to install on BOH which in in the warm shop. Hulk II is in the cold shed and has a weak battery.
Ok, I went out and found the chains and a dolly to put the mower deck on. Couple questions on installing the chains as the last time I messed with chains was 40 years ago in Korea putting them on a Duse and a 1/2.
1. Is there a front or back, I mean as pictured can they be flipped over and still be installed?
2. I assume the comments I put on the picture is correct.
3. Let the air out of the tire before putting the chain on?
