    Finally, some fun in the snow!

    The weather has been so unseasonable that I didn't get around to rigging the new front mounted snowblower I bought for the X310.
    So naturally the "coating to an inch" turned out to be a solid 5" to 6" and its still coming down pretty hard. I'm not complaining, though. I got all suited up and put the Snow Edge on the 1026R and cleared all five driveways in a little more than an hour. I know there are lots of ways to protect the asphalt and the concrete, but I've been using this attachment since I bought the tractor and only replaced the composite/plastic insert once. With the bucket in float mode, you can really get the work done quickly and well. Sorry about the length of the video. The bride was cold even standing in the garage but I know how you guys are about photos and such. Happy New Year! Just goes to show you are never too old to play in the snow, too!

    Still in holding pattern in the hanger...
    Wife wanted to sit out in her deer blind this morning and hope to catch that big buck that's been nosing around.
    Blind is off the driveway and plowing would certainly change the deer's minds about sticking around.
    I gave her until 8!

    Oh, and i rigged up a home made "GoFaux" camera to try to get some vid.

    This is a short one before the iPhone GoFaux video camera froze up solid in the 12 degree briskness.
    Had an old GPS vehicle mount that i stuck on hood. Had some custom bungee tie downs to hold it fast. Worked good. More of a warm weather thing i guess.
    This is only about maybe 1/3 of my driveway. Hence why the Artillian angle plow set up is the most ideal way to move snow. A bucket or snow pusher just wouldn't be effective at doing long straight aways as well as parking area at higher speeds.
