    Blizzard Nemo 2013 pics from MA

    FInally got enough snow to try my 47" snowblower. And boy did we get it. 28" with 4 ft. drifts! Was amazed and thoroughly impressed by how far and how much snow it moves. Had to go very slow but sitting on my arse, it was at least a lot less effort than trying to hang on to my old Toro 1332 snowblower. The hydrostatic transmission makes it really shine for frequent forward and reverse maneuvering. I used to use an ATV with a winch operated blade. The backup control was a lever that frequently jammed and I suspect was hard on the transmission in the long run. By contrast, the foot operated hydro on my JD was sublime. I've been reading other posts about traction and I found I had no trouble with slippage with no chains nor ballast box. I do have the iMatch hitch on which adds some weight. I agree with those who say the 47" width for turns is problematic, I have a circular driveway, I changed my habits to backing up and running straight shots to round tight corners making a polygonal corner.
    This morning I went out again after the wind died and cut back the drifts that had formed over night as well as the snow bank at the end of the driveway. Very pleasurable experience!

    I agree fully with your assessment of your tractor. My 1023E goes thru snow way over the tractor with no weights nor chains too. I just have the turf tires and in 4wd low range it is awesome. Enough power and effortless to operate the hydraulics. I added a chute linear motor so I don't have to get off the tractor to adjust. The snow pushing power using the snowblower is unbelievable without chains. I have not even used the differential lock. The heavy wet stuff shoots so easy, no clogging up. But most of all no more dreading clearing the driveway.

    That just looks like fun! Though having to drive in it a bit of a PITA.

    Glad you JD worked well! I used mine on the couple inches we got, but it was mostly just to run the tractor.
