Well, it finally happen I was able to use my JD2320 HC to remove 20 plus inches of snow on my drive way today!! The only casualty was a broken share pin that happened because of a loose foot.( I don't think it was loose when I started but became loose because I put pressure on snow blower). Glad I was able to get one under my Belly. Still I have a lot to learn. Is it better to engage the PTO at low idle then raise it to a higher one? IT was a lot of SNOW it seemed that my front end would wash out from time to time, would a ballast box help out on that? Your comments are welcomed an GO EASY !
