 2210 Snowblowing

Just blew 6" of fresh snow. 1st use of the 2210 with the blower. Did it in high range 2wd on a 8% grade with no slipage. At 2000rpm it blew snow 30'. Just in case it turns icy I mounted a new Worksaver broadcast spreader and filled it with 400lbs of winter aggregate. I posted a pic of the rig with the spreader, blower & new Curtis cab.

It was such a treat to come home from Arizona into -7f and snow.

I imagine this was a torture trial and it seemed to work well. I'd probably stay in 4wd and maybe low range for routine clearing. Here are some random thoughts--maybe useful.

If the snow's wet, running it at pto rpm will throw it further and the chute will be less apt to clog. I don't disengage my pto clutch when I stop until the auger clears and that keeps the chute from clogging except when I'm blowing stuff that's nearly slush. I have a 3ph blower and in light snow the blower clears faster than I'm willing to drive in reverse. Speed sure is one advantage of a front mount.

Blowers don't take much traction but I suspect that success on an 8% grade in 2wd can be attributed to the spreader and 400 lbs. of sand. It might not do as well without the spreader or maybe when the spreader is empty. Might be interesting if it became empty at the bottom of the hill. The tractor seems to have chains only on the rear. In heavier snows or on ice there may be too little steering to push the blower around corners. 4wd would help and chains on the front would help more.

I've gone from AZ to snow and sub-zero temp myself and I didn't take your comment as a joke. Me too, I like winter better. To me it means being out in the bush on snowshoes. The bush is so thick in the summer that you're pretty much confined to trails and canoe routes--besides there are no bugs in the winter and we've got every biting blood sucking bug known to man here including the odd visiting politician.

I grew up in snow-starved Phoenix and now I LOVE THE SNOW and I HATE THE DESERT. I guess it's what you're used to. Fortunately where we are in Oregon we only have it a week or two each year and not so much that we get sick of it. It sure is nice looking out the windows at a picture postcard when it happens, and it's also nice not to have to blow it since everybody just stays home during snow storms.

 2210 Snowblowing

I was born & raised in snow country. I have travelled extensively and spent winters south for years now. I get antsy when I hear Christmas carols and it above freezing let alone in the 80's or 90's, it's just WRONG!!! Laughing out loud

I was very happy when Bombardier brought back the Sea-Doo, I was having a HECK of a time trying to keep my snowmobile from overheating on the beach ... ;-p

Even now I break up my winters south with regular trips back to play in the snow. I also have family that lives in the south and they do the same thing.

I've come to realize that the two things I require to prevent 'Island Fever' from setting to bad is a) regular doses of winter weather, and b) stretches of open highway a minimum of 100 miles long. You don't realize how addictive driving is until you've lived somewhere where you can't drive more than 20 miles in a straight line without driving into the ocean.

Best of luck.

HOOKIE COW MURF I never thought about a ski-goat on the beach otherwise your post sounds much like I'd have wrote except I do not go south at all any more.

Funny spending 3 years in Honolulu and those folks have NO IDEA about how easy it is to drive a couple of hours to go shopping or get something to eat. I've done SE Asia, Korea, Alaska, and lots of other places, spent many years away from home and snow. But I will admit Virginia Beach does have a place in my heart during the summerWink yeah right Just leave me in Upstate NY for all winters.

I like the snow and have at least 4 pr of alpine skis at most times. No ski-goats. But many of the other LETS GO PLAY IN THE SNOW TOYS.

I hope we get a foot+ each week. and lots of "0" F temps.

Happy blowin, pushin and plowin...Nothin beats a good blow job... on your driveway Wink yeah right
