Ok so instead of shoveling the snow to the side you shoveled to the center of the drive so you could use your tractor? :sidelaugh You have to admire a man that wants seat time that much!:trink39:
The last snowfall was about five inches of very light snow so I raked it all together to fill the blower better. It handled it very well.
I don't have any other pictures. :sorry1:Do you have a closer picture of the auger gear box?
I was clearing some of the serious snow at the end of the driveway by my mailbox. All of a sudden it seemed like the chute was clogged. I shut down and unclogged the chute but it was actually because the welds let go. The snow blower has been in service for me since winter 2007-2008 and I do have a gravel driveway that leads to a paved private drive so I guess it's not so bad. I bought a new impeller to keep on the shelf and some new roll pins in case my welded impeller assembly fails again.How did the shaft broke?
Neat old tractor. It looks like it's in great shape.Here's one of mine. Use it only for emergencies. Had to fire it up after about 6 years of inactivity. A little points filing and the ol' girl roared to life.
1966 or '67 Simplicity model W walking tractor with single stage blower attachment. Cast iron block Briggs 8 h.p. with starter/generator.
Nice!! What model ATV's are those??Hi
Here is my blower clear a path to the bird feeders. Earlier I cleared a path to the bush so the ATV's could get out there. You can see how deep the drifts were that we cut through. The JD4100 and 47" blower works great. It didin't help much since once we inside the trails were hard going. I didn't dare take the tractor in there.
