    Ready for real snow

    Saturday I put the Edge Tamers and the Land Pride 84" rear blade on. Been very cold here and the weather guesser said we would be getting snow Saturday night into Sunday morning. We only got about 1"-1 1/2 inches. Still gave me a chance to try out the RB with the shoes on it. What a difference verses using a RB without shoes. Set the shoes so the blade was a little over a half inch off the ground. All I had to do was drop the blade and go. No adjusting to try to keep the gravel where it belongs. Never did use the FEL and Edge Tamers.

    I will be interested in hearing how the Edge Tamers work, since I'll be doing our snow work with the bucket for now. I have a 7' blade, but its at the property "down south." Since I never use it there, one of these days I need to bring it home, but that's another story.

    I used the edge Tamers the last two years when I had the 1025r and a frontier RB2060l. They worked great on gravel. I used the rear blade for the concrete. With the edge Tamers I would set the bucket in the level position or as close as possible and use the float position on the FEL in light powdery snow. For wet heavy snow I would tilt the bucket slightly forward and use a little down pressure on the FEL. Otherwise the FEL wanted to ride up over the wet snow.

    I am planning on putting an order for some Edge Tammers myself. We finally got about an inch of snow so far this winter. Most of it blew into the ditches though.
    Thanks for posting the photo's.

    Great! One of our members said he used them for leaves - could just travel along with the bucket and push leaves. I thought this was great idea as I have no equipment for that.
