Been ready all year, got a 110 with a blade, a blade for my one 112, second 112 with blower, 316k with a blower and cab, finally, a widened 54 blade and 47 blower for my 420. My uncle has a 112 with a blower, 140 with a modified 43 blade, 214 with a 43 blade, 300 with a 54 blade and cab, and finally a Wheel Horse GT14 with a WH 54 inch blade. Snow removal is our major focus hear in NEPA.
Definite chill in the air here this morning. Eastern Tennessee. But no need for any of those cold weather attachments. I hope! We do get a little snow here and every decade or so a nasty 6" of more. I am told. Never witnessed it but with the narrow windy hilly roads around here I have no desire to do so.
And on the other side of the coin...yesterday the landscaping crew showed up and leveled/graded the big backyard with topsoil. They are supposed to show up today and lay down some fresh Zoysia sod...then I turn on the sprinklers for twice a day waterings for about 2 weeks. Meanwhile I will rake, clean, rake adjoining areas and lay down a heavy coat of Bahia and Centipeded grass seed. We have at least 35 to 45 more days of 85+ degree weather here in NE Tejas, so may as well use it for something productive. The yard graded so well that I had the landscapers lay down a nice rock pad right off the front porch of my backyard shop...tamped it down with the 430 a little bit last night before the sun went down. Probably won't be lawn cleaning and leafing the yard with the Cyclone Rake until after Turkey Day. Dog days are almost gone for another year.
