Here is a picture i made today of the 8-N getting ready for some snow. I know the box scraper is not the best thing for snow but i had just scraped a farm road so i will leave it on. It was however 70 here in Southwest Virginia today and i saw buds on trees so who knows whats going to happen.

Rub it in with that 70 degree weather why don't cha! Laughing
Nice looking tractor. Love the pie weights.
Looks like you may have front tire weights too?
High of about 32 here today, and maybe an inch or two of snow.
No need to break out a tractor. Dang it! Wink

Dog,
Good looking combo I'd say. Use what ya got...
We got hammered today.
10 or so inches and kind of sticky as it stayed in the trees and power lines.
I used the back blade at 8:30 this morning on about four inches but we got another 5 or 6" after that throughout the day.
Supposed to be cold tonight - about 17 that'll make it stick to the roads for sure.
I just ran it without chains today.
Might have to install them in the morning to be effective tho.
Royse, I heard from a friend in MT today and they had 3 days of snow and weather. Cleared up there today.
Now we got it.
I'd say you all in MI are next.

If its all the same to you Jerry, ya'll can keep it over there! LOL
I've got the chains on, and the heat hausers, but I'm not really looking
forward to having to use them. At least not for that purpose!
Although, I'd take that over the freezing rain we got tonight!

I really like those wheel weights, looks like you're ready. I just had a box blade for several years, it's a little awkward, but it beats a shovel. Very Happy

We got about 10" this weekend and not a one of my 3 Ns here in town are running yet. So...got to do a lot of shoveling this morning.

I hope you get a little snow to play in! Looks like you're all set :-)

I also use a box blade. I scrap the drive, when full I lift the blade. Then back over pile and scoop it up with my FEL. Works pretty good, specially if you have just a few inches or to do clean up.
