    Rodents / mice / chipmunks

    When my tractor is sitting in its shed, I put a couple of bags of Moth balls under the hood. 1 on top of the radiator, and another toward the front. Never a rodent. Even spiders hate moth balls. They are cheap too.

    Need Bridge (deck) input

    I was just about to say, if he were in a snowmobile club he would have no problem knowing how to do a bridge. We drive a lot of heavy groomers, etc across our bridges.

    Rotella T6 synthetic oil

    I have the T6 5W40 in my tractor as well, and in my area which is cold, my tractor starts very easy with this oil. I plan on an oil change once every fall, and it will again be the T6. I like it.

    Now that would be handy. i like the pin's on the adjustment. Even better if we could get some that fit and were magnetic.

    Pros and cons of snow removal options

    A rear facing blower is a cheaper option, but in my case I am too old and cannot tolerate turning my head like an owl for long. So with me it was a front snowblower or stick with my trucks snowplow. I bought my snowblower for my 1880 off Facebooks Marketplace for 3k about half what the new...

    Pros and cons of snow removal options

    That is great. i need a set like these. I use a BX2816 with handle turning. With a mitten or wool glove it is always catching. Hands are warm but still a problem.. Insulated rubber gloves is an answer. thanks.

    Tool box options

    Oil viscosity for BX

    I removed the 15@40 T4 this fall and put in Rotella T6 5W40. Where I live in Maine, 5W always starts better than 10W or 15W. I think the Bota seems a little quieter too.

    I bought one from a fellow, and he had been blowing a stone driveway. Stone were all through the blower shearing bolts. I worked on it until all stone were out and rotation of the blower parts were free. If it is right behind in the housing, check linkage for tightness.

    Harbor Freight jack stand safety recall

    You guys call Harbor Freight junk. I think you would be surprised who make Harbor Freight tools. While you are at it check out who make Dewalt, and Milwaukee.

    Grab hooks

    Oh I might add that my bucket is the pin on. I decided on pin on as I anticipate no additional implements for the front end other than snowblower.

    Grab hooks

    I took an angle grinder and cut the bucket level off, and place a hook directly in line with the lift arms, on each side, then added the add on brace under with the place for pad eye. I like the capability of being able to choose chain or a less aggressive method of rope and pad eye for stuff I...

    Grab hooks

    I did with my 1880, and love them. Added the under piece that has hole for pad eye. Use both all the time.

    Do I buy a BX1880 or BX2380?

    That is wrong.. It all depends on the use. I have an 1880, and love it. I live in the Western Mountains of Maine and get a lot of snow. My 1880 handles the snow just fine, with the front mount 2816 blower. I have a MMM but prefer a regular riding mower to the Kubota. I am older now and...

    Piranha toothbar questions

    You won't regret getting the Pirahna tooth bar. When you drill out the sides of your bucket you will have a paper template to use. Mark the middle of the template, so you have a little leeway for installing the bolts. The will tighten up nicely. Just hang your staight edge if you can't find...

    Toolbox Options (source)

    I actually carry some small chains in one, ropes in another, and keep sunglasses with eye protection and small tools in a third larger one, on the back.

    Piranha toothbar questions

    I am not using bucket protection when I am doing yard work. Like lying new loam and back dragging it. With the toothbar it doesn't do as good a job. Other than that I want the toothbar for digging up old stumps and small trees on my property. i also have a few piles of rocks that are over...
