    Let it snow-bought a new blower today

    We had a nasty snowfall last Wed., heavy wet snow. Of course the brakes went on the F-350 so had to use the 2305. Back blade wasn't much good because there was close to a foot of snow by the time I got around to using the tractor. So it was push with the bucket till it filled then go dump. Took me about 6 hrs. to do our drive and the two contracts I have. I've wanted a blower for sometime, so broke down and bought a Frontier SB1154 today. Cost me $2200, but it's going to be worth it time wise, at least I hope it will be faster. Would have been nice to get a front blower, but I can't justify $4700... Dealer also had a front plow for $1700 but I figured the best setup for me will be the rear blower with FEL. Besides that blade stuck out a long way and I'm not so sure that I wouldn't lose traction in the wet heavy stuff... Comments most welcome.

    I agree with Brian... no teasing. Pics are necessary to confirm all claims of new equipment!

    Looking forward to the pics, but I sure can do without the snow. :D

    Not to make you feel bad, but it was a bit over 60 F and sunny here in northeast Pennsylvania today. I plan to mow a bit of the back yard tomorrow before I put my blade on just so I can say that I cut grass after Thanksgiving. I would wait to next weekend so I can say December, but I don't want to press my luck.

    I am interested to know how the blower works also. I can't use one with the tractor I have now, but next winter I hope to have a 2320.

    Not making me feel bad at all, we are getting temps almost as high as you are, supposed to hit 56 tommorrow. I'm better prepared now though.

    Alright! That's the way to shut everybody up.

    Awesome blower, and great looking rig!

    BTW, is that a lake or a river next to your property! Looks beautiful there.
