First snow with the 1972 Jacobsen 'Imperial 26' 7hp, 26" dual-stage snowblower
We got this snowblower in the summer in trade for a push mower engine, and we got our first snow on December 20th, 2009 and got a chance to try it out. It ran nice and blew snow nice, but there was one little problem...
Modifying tiller / cultivator to snow blower with homemade snowblade
I assembled some extra to a Pubert primo 5 hp tiller / cultivator to be
able to handle snow work at winter. Materials used was some metal tubes,
ship anchor chain, table frames and some sheetmetals from broken dish
washer machine. I used as tires two of 13" wheels from citroen ax. All
these winter equipments are removable with bolts.
Some rusty old tractors we got for free
A lot of this is junk, but there is at least one diamond in the rough here.
It was a sight unseen must-take-all kind of deal, so we went with
Sterling's diesel Dodge truck and a borrowed trailer and pulled these
relics out of a poison ivy filled muddy yard and brought them to tractor
land. Oh yeah, and Dave got a bed liner for his Chevy for free too.
Starting 7 Craftsman LT4000 Tractors
Now that it's spring, I've been getting stuff ready for use. I started up
all 7 of our LT4000 tractors, just to make sure everythings OK. I had two
with dead solenoids, and one with a very messed up carb that flooded the
engine with gas and made a messy geyser out of the crankcase breather.
Guess that carbs gonna need a rebuild!
NOTE: For some reason the audio sync on the gets seriuosly messed up after
3:14, worked fine on YouTube for about 10 months, now it does this. Thanks

Snow Thrower Buying Guide From Canadian Tire
See all Snow Blowers at CanadianTire.ca http://cntr.ca/CTSnowThrowers
Snow throwers help to relieve the drudgery of snow removal.
They are easy to start, maneuver, maintain and help make a big job more
To select the ideal SnowThrower, consider the size of the area that you
will need to clear and the amount of snowfall you typically receive.
A Single-Stage SnowThrower is unique in that it uses a rubber-bladed
snow-auger to not only project snow but also to propel itself along.
Just tip the unit up, allow the auger to grab the surface, then simply
follow and guide from behind.
Perfect for light, non-icy snowfalls on smooth driveways.
A Two-Stage SnowThrower can manage much larger areas and clear deeper
hard-packed snow including the pile at the end of your driveway left by the
The first stage refers to the metal augers that chop and chew through deep,
In the second stage, an impeller device pulls in the prepared snow, then
projects it out through a chute.
Two-Stage SnowThrowers are also self-propelled and are driven by the
There is no pushing involved.
Just guide and let the machine do the work.
Typically, machines with wider clearing paths have larger engines.
This way, you always can be assured of ample power and performance.
You'll also find that as size and widths increase, so do the comfort,
convenience and performance features.
For example, full-featured models have Panel Shifting with an extended
range of forward and reverse speeds.
This helps you remain upright and comfortable.
To aim the rotation of the chute, reach down and rotate the crank.
As you move up in models, you'll find dash mounted pitch control levers and
even an articulating joystick model in the premium range.
Some models are equipped with a Drift Cutter, which slices along the edge
of a pile and leaves you with a sculpted edge.
All modern SnowThrowers feature tires with an aggressive tread, eliminating
the need for chains.
You'll also find Steering Assist on some full-featured models.
Pulling up on the trigger isolates drive to the opposite side giving you
effortless agility with your machine.
Some models even feature Heated Grips, which can be felt and appreciated
through a gloved hand.
Before starting your SnowThrower, check your oil level as indicated on the
dipstick and make sure that you have enough fuel for the job.
To start the machine, insert the safety key.
Prime the carburetor.
Position the Choke in the Full position.
Move the Throttle Lever over to the Fast--Run position.
Many two-stage and single stage machines come equipped with an electric
start, which eliminates the need for a pull cord.
As the engine warms up, less choke is required.
So, begin to incrementally dial-back the choke until it is completely off
and the engine is running smoothly.
Engage the auger with the left hand lever, advance the wheel drive with the
right and then follow and guide from behind, letting the machine clear a
Finally, be sure to review the supplied manual and follow all recommended
maintenance and operating procedures.
It is the best way to stay safe, protect your investment and get the most
out of your SnowThrower.
Broken engine diagnosis on Craftsman DLS3500
In the last video we took a look at the new broken DLS3500, in this video
we take a look at the engine to figure out why it's locked up. Very
interesting what we found, very interesting indeed....
Craftsman II GT6000 Garden Tractor Snow Blowing
Got this little setup for $300, put less than $50 into it to get her up to
speed. The previous owner had left it outside for the last two years, and
never had attached the snow blower. It took only making some brackets to
mount the blower, and this was my first use with her in the snow. I need
more weight in the back. The tires are 99% filled with windshield washer
fluid, and I plan on adding wheel weights and a weight box in the back.
Needless to say, I am very happy!

Snow blower, plow and bucket on Kubota BX clearing hard snow
Used the snow blower, Bxpanded snow plow and the bucket on my Kubota BX 25
to clear away this hard snow. The hard snow stuck to the pavement before I
got around to clearing it away. The snow blower wouldn't bite into the snow
, So I used the Bxpanded quick-on snow plow to scrape up the snow so that
it could be blown away with the snow blower. I then used the tractor
bucket to do some final cleaning up. Utilisé la souffleuse à neige,
chasse-neige Bxpanded et le seau sur mon Kubota BX 25 à déblayer cette
neige dure. La neige dure collée à la chaussée avant que je sois là
pour le déblayer. La souffleuse à neige ne serait pas mordre dans
la neige, donc j'ai utilisé le chasse-neige Bxpanded rapide à ramasser la
neige afin qu'il puisse être épatés par la souffleuse à neige. J'ai
ensuite utilisé le seau tracteur pour faire un peu de nettoyage final vers
