Ready for SNOW!!!!!

Postby Bill Hudson » Sat Nov 21, 2020 8:52 pm

Finished putting the chains on the Cub this evening and will reinstall the urethane cutting edge tomorrow. I hope that I don't need to plow more than a couple of times, like last year. However, I'm prepared for the rough stuff if it happens. I don't recall doing this as late as this before; however, given my memory, or lack thereof, I may have done it this late before. :)

Bill, if you want, I will wish for you to have all of our snow.
There are two ways to get enough Cubs. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less.

Aron helped me put the plow on my Cub this afternoon along with switching the ag tires/rims to a set of turf tires/rims that I bought from “nomad” earlier this fall. Still need to put the chains on but I shouldn’t have any traction issues now. No lugs for the chains to fall between.
Just need to get a new battery, sure wish I could score a deal like you folks in the Midwest get. Best price I’ve found is for a DuraStart at Runnings in Putnam, CT for $60 plus tax. 32 miles/55 minutes away.

$60 is a good price. Is that 6v that's a great price for one of those.

I hope we get snow. It's a rarity here in upstate SC. And the last 2 to 3 years has been almost non existent

I put my chains and blade extension on the LoBoy yesterday and put the plow on the ATV too. They're calling for 2-4" here today. This is our first real snowfall for the year!

Couldn’t agree more. That’s a great price. TSC has them in the $70-$80 range. See there, you don’t have to be envious of us Midwesterners after all. You must be living right! :wink:

TSC is $100 here, so yeah $60 isn’t bad except that I’ll burn 3 gallons of gas and a 2 hour round trip.
Aron is going to see what their battery distributor can do.

Urbish, sorry to disappoint, but it's melting almost as fast as it's coming down.
Personally l'm hoping to get "Workhorse" back up and running before l need to plow. I haven't even taken my mower off Workhorse ll yet. Hoping l don't have to. The mounting blocks in the bolster haven't been out of Workhorse in 20 yrs.
Why is there never enough time to do the job right, but always enough time to do it over. :?:

To prevent cross chains from falling between the lugs take a chain repair link and link the cross chains together in the middle forming an X.
I no longer put the blade on the cub since the cadet with a blower is so much faster in my case. Drive is so steep the cub can only plow going downhill. I have chains and wheel weights. I also am ready, well equipment wise anyway, for snow. The blower and chains are on. The weight box is only minutes to slip into the tool mount. A blower does not handle wet sloppy stuff very well but so far never a real problem. I have a 404 with bucket if necessary. Blower also is handier to get to wife's birdfeeders at last count at 11 and the bird bath, heated of course. Vern

I had the same situation,the drive back up the hill was wasted since it was too much work to get off at the top or bottom to angle the blade. As an early adopter of the hydraulic angle it sure made life and seat time more fun. You obviously could not push much up hill but you could catch the tailing's you left on the downward pass. Well worth the effort.

I mounted the blade on my '53 a week or so ago. I haven't put the chains on the tires yet. I want to wait until we get snow to put them on.

my TSC is like $100.

I think the good deals he is talking about are at rural king, but I thought that was the $60 price I see listed was from there.

You are right. I just double-checked my TSC and they're $99.99. Price has gone up since I bought my last one. :shock:
