I've noticed that one year ago, there was a lot more snow than what we've
seen altogether this whole season....


This was the B100 that I use to have, I've learned my lesson on betting with
Rob over this very tractor... I get jealous now every time he uses it :crybaby:
he's offered to give it back to me but a deal is a deal and I lost....




This Wheel Horse could seriously push some snow, however Rob seems to
have it weighted less than I did but can push more snow with it, must be
his experience in plowing is all I can think....​

Uh, Merrie, I think Rob is just a bit heavier than you are. Even with the less weight he has on the tractor, when he puts it to work, it probably weighs more with him in the seat than the combination that you used.

I second winning the tractor back. I also second Rob being a bit more counterweight than you are. No offense to anyone mentioned.

Hope for snow :fing32:

A bet is a bet, but when it comes to husband/wife bets, they don't count like other bets do, so knock him off YOUR B100! :trink39:
That is my take, and sticking to it.

Merrie . You need to figure out some bet that you can make that you know for sure you can win to get it back .... We still have no snow yet .

Na.... I'll let him keep it, since he got rid of his Cub (what a mistake that
was!!!!)...

WOW, I never thought about that, don't know why :dunno: He put
23X10.50-12 Super Lug's on it and filled them so they weigh 80 Lbs. each,
then he added those big thick weights on at 55.8 Lbs. (I think) then his
weight at 240 that comes out to roughly 511 Lbs. and all I had on it was:
165 on each rear wheel no loaded tires but me weighing in at about
140 Lbs. (completely bundled up: 3 pair of sock, 3 pair of sweat pants,
2 hoodies, 2 jackets, 1 coat, 1 hat, pair of boots, and 2 pair of gloves :thThumbsU)
that would equal roughly: 470 Lbs
for a difference of: about 41 Lbs.

Thanks for the comment VWJake :thThumbsU

LOL... Knock him off the B100... would this have to do with the 3 ring
thing????

Maybe, but Rob doesn't get on much anymore...

Why, I can't believe he took advantage of you like that! Rob is a very bad man!!!

Ring thru the nose--even if invisable to most.....:banghead3

Yikes, that sounds painful!!!

Merrie, give him the sad eyes with a tear in the corner of your eye! It will melt his heart and you'll be back on the WH in no time!
Hmmmm, I wonder if this tactic would work... He does after all keep
rubbing it in on how "HE LOVES HIS WHEEL HORSE!!!"


Maybe someone can find a way to plow water. We have more than our fair share.
Or better yet... Instead of hooking up a plow people should consider
hooking up a water pump to the front of there tractors... LOL

But he did allow me to plow a bit with the B100 since
my horse is sick and out for the winter... LOL

This is what I wear over my polyester shirt and snow pants. It's good down to about -20* F.

For really cold temps, I switch to this one. It's a snug sack for outdoor winter playing.

You could maybe try one of these.

Be prepared for sticker shock. They start at $500 plus, but are well worth it.
