    John Deere 1025R with 47 inch Snow Blower - Maiden Voyage video here

    I hooked up my snowblower a few weeks back, and it went well....

    Missed the first big 10" snow to test it on, but we had about a 5" snow a few days after..... so I got to test it out. Worked like a dream. Can't wait for a major storm to really have some fun.

    Watch the video of my Maiden Voyage here....

    Don't let the wife see the big grin on your face. It is supposed to be work. Also you will find you don't even need the weight box.

    great video, looks like it is working well for you. I would try to turn all of those perpendicular passes into longitudinal (aligned to driveway) just to cut down on all of the back and forth/wear and tear. It looks like three long passes instead of all of those short passes. The top of my driveway is a pain because it is pear shaped, so no matter which way I go its got curves making it hard to be efficient but the main drive is on long S curve so I can take three passes and clear the entire length which is much faster per sq/ft of area than all of the weird passes I am forced to do next to the garage.

    I find a scarf is a good mask for the grin. You just have to put on your 'mad eyes' so the wife doesn't think you are having to much fun

    I think I will give that a try! I could do maybe 3 passes in the turn-around, parallel with the driveway...and then maybe a perpendicular shot on each outbound edge to get a good 90 degree cleanup in the corners.

    Great video, thanks for posting. I would say that I have got to get me one of those but I don't think it would see much action down here. It has been close to 80 down here for the last several days.

    Great video. It looks like you are a seasoned pro at blowing snow. At this point in my life (2 new snowmobiles) I wish we had that snow here in MN.
