Hi all - my name is Jeff, I live in NW Ohio. I use a 1988 Ingersoll 446 for plowing my long driveway. It's a new addition to the fleet, just bought it a few months ago after reading much about what to use for plowing snow. I blasted the wheels, plow and brackets and repainted all. All new tires - the rears are 6 ply Titan ags and the front are 6 ply's also. All the plow hardware has been replaced with stainless....... I have issues with stainless....... It also has custom made wheel weights, about 100 pounds on each wheel.

The tractor also has a 3 point and PTO, looking for a tiller for next spring. This is my first Case / Ingersoll and so far I'm extremely pleased in the tractor and what seems to be a very tough line of equipment.

Other than my children, my interests are my Harley and my tractors - depends on my mood as to which one heads the list....

Looking forward to reading and learning, and getting ideas for builds. I like to build my own trailers and implements whenever feasible.

Thanks for the forum, and best of luck.

Jeff, welcome to the forum. Are you one of those guys that just has to have stainless on everything he builds. Do you say " why use steel when I can use stainless?"
:grin:

Ha - sort of....... I just have a serious aversion to anything junk or cheap. I tend to overbuild, overfix, etc..... so the stainless fits right in ! Just drives me nuts when I see someone driving a new $40,000 truck with a $17 toolbox in the back, or with rusty license plate bolts..........

Glad to have you here, Jeff.

Sorry to tell you this, but I'm now counting on you to be an active participant in the Workshop Forum. :sidelaugh:

Please don't let me down.

Hi Jeff,
Are you near Deshler?? I and some friends are railfans and we get out to Fostoria, Deshler, and Marion sometimes twice a summer. I too am a stainless steel fan having been a marine and aircraft mech for most of my life around the ocean.
