    10" of snow forcast... BUMMER! Rockshaft issues

    I was all set yesterday getting the 1026 ready for the upcoming snow event and something made me look at the L. end of the rockshaft. That's right Ladies and Gentlemen, no C clip and the spline is moved way to the right...

    GX335 + plow or blower for this one.

    Oh well, Green is Green in the snow!

    Sure is, and it's been the perfect snow remover. It will take a bit longer (OK!) but it's not as good at night. Even with the halogen upgrade kit it's a lot tougher in the dark as I have a vision condition that reduces my night vision... Sooooo.... I'll simply wait until it gets light!

    It really doesn't matter how deep the snow is with the GX, I can always switch to the 42" blower "if things get tough".

    (Now we're in the official "Winter Storm Warning" zone!)

    Yeah, sure, everybody always wants pictures... Just as soon as I can I'll untarp it... That is AFTER I plow a path to it with the GX! (Gee, I hope it will start! Last night was it's first night actually outside of the unheated shop.)
