Picked it up in New York this morning, pics when I unload in the morning. Started at 5 am and got back at 8:40 pm. Roads snow covered for first 130 miles. Took some unplanned scenic routes courtesy of my navigation system too.

Nice score!

I'm not sure there is enough weight on the back of that thing to plow or blow snow you may want some more. ;)

I love those plows!

So when I arrived to pick this up I'd gotten a flat on my trailer, the guy I bought the equipment from did a quick fix on it that held all the way home. Really nice guy and I hope he joins the site, he is buying a bigger tractor so he needed to eliminate everything. By the way the Lowville, NY area was really beautiful, they'd just gotten about a foot of snow during the week and the snowmobiling crowd was out in full force.

It doesn't waste any time digging down to the ground. Probably going to try out putting the blower on my 322 (I have the cab on it) and see if I can get by with loaded tires and rear weight. I try to stay away from chains as much as possible. Those steel wheel weights will be useful for setting the machines up for plow days though!!!!

Nice. Did you go up 81 to route 12? It is nice country up there.

Up 81, I was only on 12 for a few miles. Here's the routing that my navigation system took me on: So got off I-81 at Pierrepoint exit and went east on County Route 91, then to CR 92, then to CR 189, then to SR 177, then to Rt. 12, then to Rt. 26 and the seller lived just off Rt. 26.

On the return trip I just stayed on SR 177 till I hit I-81. However I did get some scenic routing on the way back at I-490 in Rochester area!!

When I can afford it I want to buy a pair of HDAPs for the 332. I have an extra pair of rear rims I can repaint and put them on. They would be loaded of course and then try blowing/plowing without chains also. My driveway has a pretty good grade to it so when it's icy the chains come in handy.

That is beautiful country up there year round. Glad you enjoyed it and are happy with your buy. I was a little underwhelmed with the 12" and hoping we get some real snow before the end of the season.

My second gps (tomtom piece of junk) name was Ima Lost, thanks to an excursion in VA. The 3rd gps name is Ima Losttoo!
