    1025r Ready For Snow Battle

    Okay, I'm a little late to the party but our fall was so nice that I kept putting off getting my rig winter ready. Then, we got a 9" dump of heavy stuff and I spent several days cleaning my tractor up, doing the 200 hour service and installing it's winter battle gear. I was pleasantly surprised with the ability of this tractor to move the snow. We had packed the stuff down pretty bad on the mail cement pad area outside the garage and I was afraid that I would have to wait for a warm up to melt the pack away but I was able to scrape the packed snow clear with some down pressure and tactful approach. The cab heater is the cat's meow and I was actually plowing with no gloves and no coat or jacket. I am impressed. Ear protection is a must though, it gets pretty loud in that cab with the engine noise and hydro, etc. I did manage to put together a "quickie" solution to the sooty startup and blackened plow/blower/green stuff at the front of the tractor. I fab'd together a couple of pipes I picked up at a local auto parts store and even rigged an exhaust hose to keep the sooty and stinky warm up out of the garage. It works like a charm and I will have to change the exhaust around once I put the loader arms back on come spring. For now, I'm just as content with this setup as I could be. I'll attach a few snaps to help illustrate my setup.

    Welcome from northeastern Pennsylvania.

    I like the fact that you do not use chains.

    The exhaust route to outside idea is excellent. Let it warm up in the garage and then be plowing right as you exit the door. I wish I hadn't chucked my old pool vacuum hose!
