    Default New snowblower got its first real storm today .............

    About 36 inches of fresh snow. Everything worked beautifully and I cleared a 600 ft paved driveway in about a hour. Could of made a little better time if the darn wind wasn't blowing or at least wasn't blowing in all directions at the same time. Thinking a cab would be awfully nice but we don't often get a storm with that much snowfall overnight or winds blowing that hard. Before I started I was thinking I wish I hadn't of just sold my Dodge 2500 with the new boss VXT on it. However, seeing what this 60" machine can do I have no regrets now! The TYM273 used about 1 1/2 gals of diesel. My dodge would of used 5 gallons of gas doing the same job plus no tuff was plowed up and my snow bankings are now 25 to 30 ft off my driveway.

    Good for you. And I wouldn't call this the FIRST REAL STORM. ThATs an understatement. This was unreal. I don't know if the Dodge could have pushed it. My F350 couldn't. Tractor works good but slow, and fun. Good to hear your happy with the blower. I want one !

    I have a 293 with an Erskine 601 front mount/rear PTO blower. TYM didn't make a blower unti this year. They are snow moving machines.
