Woke up to about 4'' on the ground. The snow looked light and powdery so I decided to start up the 1050 for the first time this season and try out my NOS snow cab. I got about 1/2 way down the drive way when the chute clogged up :mad2:. Under the 2'' of powder was about 2'' of heavy wet snow. When I was going forward the bottom layer was just getting pushed along and getting built up in front of the snow caster and nothing was going in to the blower. After about 5 times of getting out of the cab to unclog the chute I decided It was time to fire up the 850 to finish the job.

Here's a few pics after I was done... The battery died on the camera after about 2 minutes out in the 18 degree weather so no videos this time LOL.

We got3" snow yesterday and had white out conditions. Blew hard enough that we only afew drifts in the drive. Not enough to shovel, truck did a fine job getting thru it. They are calling for rain later this week so I will let nature take care of it for me.

Just a little here. I've been getting in the habit of using this little 20 inch snowblower though. Finish here and truck it over to the inlaws...

We had some snow here, but turned out that there isn't really enough for the snowcaster on the 1265, so I figured that since the 1886 is finally unstuck, that the FEL would suffice as a snow plow.

BUT...after all that work getting the new rear tires on...I now have a flat left front :wallbanging::wallbanging::wallbanging:

I tried airing it up with my el cheapo compressor, but I think the valve stem is frozen as it won't take air :sensored::sensored:

Oh well, it's supposed to be 42 deg by Monday, so I'll let the sun do the work

Sorry to here of the snowblower frustration. At least you had backup. :thumbs: I wonder why mine worked so well even on slushy stuff, although it didn't like the door handle it found.
