I finally got the camera out to share some seat time with my forum buddies. There are no "action shots", as my wife thinks I'm semi retarded for my affliction with these tractors. So I have to get off and do my own photography work.

First up is the 222 with the 54 inch blade from my 446. I use it to scrape the concrete slab in front of the house. Push it into a pile for later removal with the 446 and the snow caster. As you can see the 222 has no problem pushing the 54 blade. Traction can sometimes be a problem, as there are no weights, just chains.





Next up is the 446 after the snow has been cleared. I do have a home made cab for the 446, but I need to get it modified to fit around my PTO and TPH. I am NOT taking it apart every year to put on the cab.







My drive is 260 feet. The area in front of my house and garage is about 110 feetx60, and the side of the garage is 70 feet.
Here is a pic in front of my garage, from about where the tractor is sitting.

Terry, you have an unbelievable driveway man. In order for me to get that much seat time I have to do the whole neighborhood. Nice pics, nice machines. Thanks for showing us :thumbsup:

I just got my one tractor going today with chains and a blade. We have way too much snow to be just getting started with a tractor just coming back to life. All the implements are taking a bit of tweaking to get operating at all. I dragged the snow caster into the shop, had to make a side swivel pin for the mule drive just so I could hook it up to get it to the shop. The belt that was wrapped around the chute looks a little light. Saw a recommendation in another post of a decent size that's been trialed already. Glad to see the evidence of this old stuff getting the job done. Wasn't too impressed with the way the tractor handled the blade in the deep snow. Lots of stuck action. Those chains can sure dig down in a hurry. Next winter I'll have a team of 444's ready from the start, one with the blade, the other with the blower. That'll give a better evaluation of these little tractors.

OK - now you've inspired me to finish tweaking my Snocaster! The blade works great, but the banks are getting pretty high. My drive is about half as long as yours, and I'm running out of room to push snow. Time to start throwing it into the yard! Nice pics, and nice looking place!

Nice action shots! :coolphotos:

I like snow removal more than mowing. If it snows multiple times in a week I get more seat time than my once a week mowing.

You're not the only one. Chains + wheel weights still resulted in a lot of spinning and frustration. I'm putting the final coat of paint on the snowcaster tomorrow (Finally! YAY!!) and I'll pull the blade off and put the 'caster on. That will probably guarantee no more good snow though :crazy:

Wurkenman: Nice property you have! That's a long wide run on the drive and large parking area, well under control as can be seen in pics! Nice GTs and snow moving system! I have pushed dirt around with my 224 with 54" blade. I had my wife out taking pictures in her pajamas in the cold after the last blizzard. She was screaming bloody murder at me! :sidelaugh: :coolphotos: :222: :446: :trink: Best Regards, Rich
