Got our first storm delivered just when everyone was coming for Thanksgiving dinner. No problem. No reason for panic.
Happened to have nothing on the loader, so just pulling up to the forks. Engine is cold (as am I) so taking it slow.
Pick up the forks, get off, pop in the pins to lock the frame on the loader, hop back on. (Also cleaned up a couple of things in the area)
Cleaned off the snow, drove around out back (slow-and-in-low to let everything get warmed up) to a shed to drop off the forks. (Also found a few more things to organize there)
Hang 3 suitcase weights on the front of the tractor frame.
Now meander over to another shed where the plow gets stored for the summer.
Grab the plow adapter, quick check over. Haven't looked at the thing in 6 months.
Slide it onto the pallet fork frame and pin it in place.
With the plow sitting on a roll cart, pull it over to the tractor and snap the Deere hitch onto the adapter plate.
Connect up the two hydraulic hoses.
Raise up the plow off of the roll cart to check for mistakes made while yawning.
Give the hydraulics a quick check
And I'm off to the races.
Total of about 10 minutes in no particular rush, between 4 storage locations. If all in one place, it would have been half the time. Skip ahead about another 5-10 minutes after scraping up a few odd spots and here's the plow in business.
Job done 20-25 minutes. Head back in to make the gravy.
