So recently we got the s word. SNOW! For everyone that gets some regularly, what mods are you doing to prepare for it! Plows? Chains? Oil changes? I plan on doing a axle swap and new tires.

I am working on small things in the rally to "perfect it" (although it will never be perfect) enough to take it home for the winter because now it is at my shop.  I will also do an oil change (like usual) and then... I will start getting more in-depth on the speed mower!!

Also thinking about the future.. I might get another 700 and make a BETTER tractor just to plow the garden and the snow and be like the all around work-horse (but that's the future).

I changed my oil to Quaker State 10w-30 Synthetic oil and changed my oil filter. motor sounds healthier and warms up better.

If I had mine here with me id wrap chain around the center of each front tire. I saw that they help with turning traction.

Be sure to yell "Git 'R Done!" frequently, whilst doing the above. Remember to yell loudly, they gotta hear you over the exhaust... lol!

A good snow is fun when in school, and then it's fun about twice a year. Darn winter here is way too long.

Mine's ready for the snow, we usually hook a sled to it and pull the kids around once a year. Without the ag's and locked rear, it would be dead in the snow. I can get through quite a bit driving around, but big drifts stop ya, unless you can get some speed and bust through.

Thicker oil is for summer. Multi-viscosity oils have pretty much eliminated the need for different oils in the summer/winter.
