    Finally, a chance to try the "Snow Edge"

    A fast moving storm dumped about 6 inches of snow on us last night into this morning, and so I finally had an opportunity to use the Snow Edge on my 1026R.
    Well designed and easy to mount and un-mount, I was very pleased with the way the attachment allowed me to clear all five driveways in only a couple of hours. It certainly protected the paved driveways and the two (new) concrete ones. The beveled edge helped guide the snow into the bucket, and dumping was no problem. After the sun was out an hour or so, the snow did get a bit heavy so I stopped a couple of times and cleaned it out. I know there are a lot of other solutions and less expensive ones for those with more advanced mechanical skills, but I feel the purchase was well money well spent. What I really need now is a better pair of boots! It was unusually cold for NJ (15 degrees) this morning, and even with two pairs of socks my Duck boots were not doing the job. Any suggestions from you northern guys?

    My camera girl was a little chilly too but I told her everyone would like to see the attachment "live".

    Thanks MrZeeno.
    Boots? When its really cold I'll wear my snowmobile boots. This morning it was 9 here and I wore my barn muck boots while snow plowing, about 3 hours. I always figure the reason they keep my feet from freezing is because they are so high up on the calves and my legs help keep the boots warmer.

    +1 on muck boots and smartwool over the calf boot socks. Toasty down to 5F. The wool socks make all the difference. When it gets cold i switch to the 0 degree hunting boots. Can I ask what you had on your legs? Flannel or fleece lined jeans? Insulated bibs? It's all about layers, and don't make them too tight either.

    TSC sell Ranger Pac boots like these: https://www.rangerboots.com/Pages/Pr...0Earth%20Brown

    With the extra liner, they are the warmest boots I've ever worn, and the price is reasonable as well.

    Come on you guys, you don't want to tell me that you are freezing when it is still +1º warm? When it is getting cooler around here, lets say -10 or -15º, I put warm boots on (those snow boot type things, Sorrel type boots are to heavy for me). But I wear woolen socks all winter long. Cotton in summer wool in winter!

    Are you referencing old military surplus boots? We always called them Mickey mouse boots

    I had plenty of layers and was toasty warm except for my feet. I was wearing OTC boot socks, too. The duck boots are waterproof and insulated, but not enough for the cold and wind chill we had today.
