    Default Plowing snow!

    We picked up about 6" of the white stuff in SE Michigan. I went out and cleared my driveway with my MF1643 for the first time. Lots of fun!! The drive is about 75' long. I used my FEL and rear blade. Having a tractor sure is nice...now only if it had a cab!

    You have to remember to tell the wife that this is a Labor Saving Device. I have no toys, just labor savings devices. ask the wife.

    Just be thank full you have snow. It has been 11 degrees Celsius (52 Fahrenheit) for the last week here. But I guess I jinxed the snow for this area since I doubled the # of snow blowing customers and bought a new snowmobile. I suppose that would be karma catching up to me.
