I had to drive home from work yesterday about 20 miles. I work way in the country so it was a awesome drive back! But as soon as I got to civilization again I was on edge . I'm cruising 45mph on a 55mph rural road That's snow covered and doing fine but these idiots don't know how to drive so they are doing about 10mph in a big traffic line slamming on brakes . So 15 miles of my trip didn't take me too long . The longest portion was the last 5 miles in town . Then you have the idiots that want to creep up the hill... It's great that everyone has FWD and AWD cars these days but they got to remember that there are still RWD people on the road trying to keep momentum up a hill haha . So the guy doing about 5mph up the hill was causing me to loose traction getting up so I had to lug the engine in 3rd and I creeped up as well but dang it sure took and unnecessary amount of time to get up the hill. I feel like if folks are scared to drive in the white stuff they just are better off staying at home .

I'm sure all of you upstate are used to this though

Ah those creep up the hill rodents! They look at you funny when you drive past them going up the hill. Some of us STILL have RWD vehicles.

Anyway, I'm ready!

Haha this is a great photo!

I enjoy driving my 240's in the snow because that's what I've driven most of my life and I feel very confident in the snow with them , especially in the first few hours of snow fall that's why I still drive them a lot in the snow . I do have a 4wd truck and a AWD SUV as well . I took the AWD SUV out last night in the snow for the first time . Darn thing is so safe that I can't even get sideways in it haha .

Speak for yourself! LOL!

The red 682 normally has a deck and used for mowing. The 1811 is used for the thrower and thrower kept on all year. The 1650 does plow work in the winter and general yard work the rest of the year. My version of quick attachment.

Here they are fitted for work on the driveway.
