You guys are just getting snow now? We've already had several snowfalls, and have a light coverage now. We should add to that this week. So far so good on the Fortera Tripletreds. Significantly better traction than the old CT's.

Yea, we have been lucky so far with earlier storms hitting Wisconsin.

Funny thing was I mowed my lawn last Friday to use up all the gas in the tank. Then I got the snow blower out, checked oil, gassed it up and it ran like a champ. All Honda of course

Snow

We got just a dusting here in minnesota. I wanted to try out the 4wd on the MDX. I put my mower away 3weeks ago Honda of course and was getting my snowblower ready. I work at Honda atv, mc and power equipment dealer. Last week i sold a single stage Honda snowblower to a guy because his 2stage Honda HS55 was broken. Would take $300 to fix so he wanted to get rid of it. He gave it to me and i bought parts for it $125 and it starts on the first pull like my mower does. My storage shed is now full of Honda power equipment. Always wanted a Honda 2stage blower but the start at $2100. I really lucked out on this obviously.

I just picked up an old Snowbird from one of the Honda techs here, for free

Needs some carb and recoil work, which I'm gonna do with a heater and some coffee out in the garage tomorrow night

Ended being about 2 inches where I was. It was blowing like crazy in the early hours, but nothing too crazy.

What's snow???

It was 70 degrees last weekend. Went for a bike ride, then took the roadster out for a drive.

Little foggy this morning, but still sunny and in the mid to high 60s now.

I've sold and repaired about a dozen Ariens machines in the last month. Good performers and zero comebacks so far

In fact, I have to pick up and repair an Ariens ST1032 later today. The guy claims the auger's turning too slow.....never heard of that one, unless it's a belt. Belts on Ariens look impossible to change, but really take about a minute.

The Snowbird is the last machine that I had. With the snow coming, I could have sold that one too.....but that would have kinda stunk as far as clearing my OWN driveway.

The snowbird is built like an M1 Abrams tank, but to be honest, after using it, I'd say that Ariens wins in a snowblowing contest......the materials were better, but the technology wasn't perfected yet.

I'm a certifiable nut though, when it comes to old motor-driven equipment (I've got three lawn tractors to service now, a Murray, a Wheel Horse 857, and a Cub Cadet).

Here's a shot of this 1960 Snowbird S263, currently in fear factor mode....




But I digress
