    You guys had snow already?

    We were about 2 degrees away from it this morning, but we just got 34 degree rain instead. :censored:

    Had better than a foot yesterday and last night.
    Hoping it helps extinguish the fires.
    I'd rather have falling snow than any more falling ash.

    WTF are you hooligans doing with that diesel additive?
    I had to get checker approval to buy it at the wallymart.

    I'm going to quit doing meth if that's what you're making it with.

    Hey, the only way I inject it is with a high-pressure fuel pump.

    Any of you plow a gravel drive?
    My plow has 4-5" diameter spring loaded feet on it. I imagine they're great for pavement or concrete, but they're too easy to dig into gravel or RAP.
    I'm thinking I need like 12" or bigger saucers. Something that would "ski" on top of the gravel and not dig in.
    The flat access road is fine, just set the blade height and go but my driveway is sloped and the tractor pitches up and down making it too easy to destroy the RAP.

    Ideal would be fabricating something impermanent that I could attach to the existing feet.
    Any experience/ideas?

    One trick is to take a PVC pipe and cut a slice in it lengthwise and slip it on over the cutting edge. Not very practical for a road-going truck (since you'd have to install/remove it at every driveway), but would work fine for a tractor that doesn't leave your property.
    Personally, I plow my gravel driveway with a 1000lb v-plow, no shoes, and I just float it a bit until the ground freezes up. After that it's pretty much a non-issue, but I do always end up with a small pile of gravel at the far end of the driveway once the snow melts in the spring.

    first one is ABS. That might be less likely to shatter than PVC....

    I wonder about using a steel pipe. I have some 2-5/8" drill stem. Might give that a shot.

    Yeah, I just googled 'PVC pipe on plow' and grabbed a couple of images to illustrate the concept.

    I use 3" schedule 40 steel pipe when i make mine... also use some flat stock welded to each end to attach it to the plow so it doesn't come off when backdragging

    1st one lasted about 7 years on a Fisher 8' plow, and easily pays for itself in the time not spent raking rocks out of the yard......
    Hardest part is slitting the pipe to accept the plow - usually use 4 1/2" grinder with cutting wheels, as I don't have an 8' straight edge

    What does all do when it’s cold outside? Some Hibernate? Some work on projects for the spring as in maintaining there tractors and way not? Some don’t even go into the garage until after the new year!??

    Once the grass stops growing and I get caught up on cleaning my mower and garage up for the upcoming snow season. I seem to hibernate until about January/February... I get the need to “find” something to project on. No heat in the garage so I gotta pick the warmer days to do this.

    I don't have heat either but I figured it out last year. Put a couple electric space heaters out there first thing in the morning while I had coffee and breakfast then went out and walked around the garage with my weed burner running on jet burner waving it all around for about 3 rounds.

    Knocked the chill off and the space heaters maintained it.

    Well, I use mine all winter. I use it to shuttle firewood between the woodshed and the house, because it takes a lot fewer trips to get a week's worth of wood in than with a wheelbarrow. Plus once the snowbanks start getting long after a few storms I use it to push them up/back so I don't run out of space.

    And I hire out to do the same thing for other people. Seems like people are always surprised how fast their driveways fill up after a couple of decent storms.
