Snow Removal

Snow Removal
Since ya'll have some garden tractor snow plow stories I will add mine . This Febuary Richmond, Virginia was hit with the worst snow in four years, we got 12 inches of snow in one day! This much snow will close down a southern city but not my neighborhood! I usally have a snow plow on one of my many Wheel Horse garden tractors that I use not to plow snow BUT to push leaves off the yard . I have several large trees in the yard and a lawn sweeper will not handel all the leaves once they hit the ground, just too many of them! This year it was my 1961 Wheel Horse model 701 that had the snow plow ready, I got up at 5;00 am and drove the 701 out of the garage at 5;30 pushing snow from the get go . I worked that Wheel Horse with it's 7 h. p. Kohler and noisy transmission till lunch time pushing snow, by this time 10 inches of snow had fallen and still coming down! After taking a break for lunch, changing the oil in the Wheel Horse and adding some wheel weights it was back to work . I have a lot of 'little old ladies' that live around me and I knew they would be stranded if their drive ways were not cleared of snow so I had a lot of work a head of me . Plowing snow till dinner time then a quick meal and right back at it again, it was 9;30 pm when I got done . That night as I parked the 701 all covered with snow from plowing five drive ways I thought 'here is a tractor that was found in a scrap pile and I have not done any thing more than rebuild the carburator and change the oil to it', just amazing these Wheel Horses! This spring when it was time to remove the snow plow blade I found that one of the snow plow mounting bolts had came out during the snow storm and that I was plowing snow with only one bolt holding the snow plow! Wheel Horses are TUFF! Bill in Richmond, Va.
