    This is my newest snow mover, 74 JD 2030 with a 145 loader and 7' JD rear blade. I bought it this summer, it had been sitting in a barn for 6 years and was covered in 1/2" of pigeon crap. It took a month or so and some $$$ but I got her going, still working out some of the bugs. It sure beats pushing with my old JD 60 with a hand clutch and trip bucket!

    This is our snow fighting weapon at work. Its called a Jordan Spreader. The nose blade lowers down and each side wing swings out, so you end up with a 20' wide plow. The spreader takes 3 guys to operate the hydraulics, a conductor , and an engineer to push it. The two locomotive put out 8800 HP and believe me it takes all that too get through some deep drifts. As an engineer people ask me whats it like, I say you cant see anything most of the time! Its a white knuckle ride and not much fun!

    Here is what I plan to use for snow 6" and under. It worked great on my little Yanmar, now I have 45 more horses behind it so that should make a difference.

    How much does the jordan spreader with the plow weigh?

    Id guess 150K lbs, its considered light in railroad terms. She derails quite a bit, so much that we carry rerailing frogs with us. Its original purpose is for moving dirt and ballast but works well for snow.

    That was my thought if it was light it would derail.

    I also discovered the hassle of plowing with a bucket on my 2516. So much so I ended up ordering a sub frame plow set up for it.

    Last winter I posted this photo of me shoveling the roof of my porch with the backhoe. I was very careful and didn't have an "oop's", but I have been known to have them.

    So here is the latest addition to the snow weapon arsenal. The super snow rake.-imag0035-jpg-imag0036-jpg

    It should prevent any major oops's and gives me an additional 4 ft of reach with the bucket open.

    2x6 with u bolts around teeth and tire tread bolted on.
