    Nor-easter snow blizard

    Here are some current pictures from central PA. About 15" down now and they are saying another 12".
    This will be a test for the 1025r with 54" snow blower.

    I would seriously consider going out now and blowing, then again after the rest falls. It will be much easier than trying to move 32" of the white stuff.

    Howdy! I'm over here in Marysville and in some places due to the drifting I only have 12" showing on my 4-foot driveway markers. I have a 2720 with a 54" blower in front and a 60" blade in the rear but the challenge today will be the wind. It's coming from the direction that I need to blow the snow. :-( I really envy the guys with cabs right now.

    It's snows like this that make me wish I had gone with a rear 3PH blower as the height of the 54" frame is actually lower than my old MTD walk-behind. So it's not the greatest for chewing thru deep drifts.

    My plan is to go out around Noon and have a go at a first pass.

    It would probably be best, although, it is snowing extremely hard and it is so windy so the challenge is the wind right now.

    I'm in Dauphin County north of Harrisburg. I here ya. The wind is the challenge, not to mention it is snowing at about 2" per hour. I had thought about a cab but thought, ah, we don't get that much snow!!!!! haha.
    Well, the cab would sure be nice now, although, we get a snow like this once in 10 years so I guess I'll just deal with it.

    Ray, you will be allright, we had a storm here 2 years ago got like 32". I waited until it was over due to wind. Using a 2305 w/ a 47" blower I had to go slow let the blower eat the snow....There were times when the blower was under the snow and only the top of the chute was sticking out....The tractor never stopped. Your blower is bigger so you will have to go even slower, but that said you will be amazed at what it can do. Wish I had a picture, hope you will post one when you get going. Good luck!!!!!!!

    Before I had a cab I would wear a snowmobile suit and helmet with a faceshield. I would be covered from head to toe with snow.

    Thanks for the experience. I agree, slow and steady with a snow blower!!!
    Update pictures. The front license plate on my truck is now covered. That's about 3" in the last hour. Visibility is maybe 200' right now.
