    I heard Ridgid is coming out with a snow blower attachment for their 18V drill

    Also a power ice scraper conversion kit for their cordless planer.

    In bright Ridgid/HD orange of course.

      With the addition of a front scoop and wheels the TP1300 planer does a fine job. Just make sure you use the 4" side of the dust chute so it does not clog up.

        It's hard to shovel ice, and that's about all we get here in DFW. Besides if you wait till the next day it will all melt. [img]smile.gif[/img]

            We had snow on tuesday and it has not melted at all. All my conduite is frozen together, and i have to cycle through the dry gloves i have. At work today i was just laughing at myself. As a kid in 10 hours I could shovel all the snow in the front yard into a big pile. We were the only people with a green yard and a 12ft high mound of snow. Now i curse the clouds that block the sun and had to get hand warmers in my boots so i can feel my toes for the 8 hours I work.

              Polar Sparky,

              Look at it this way. When you were a kid your mom got mad at you if you were playing in the mud and snow for too long. Now you get paid for it.

                      i just pound mine down with 1971 herters snowmobile, that makes the job seem like fun.

                        I have a Commercial Gravely with a 38" blower on it, makes short work of justabout anything.

                          1986 Bolens ST120 (swapped the 12HP for an 18HP engine) with a 38" snowblower attachment.

                          This year hopefully I can get pics in action........I can throw the snow clear into the driveway of the person that lives across the street from me.

                          Its only a single stage blower, so I try to get out there when the amount gets to 6" or the storm ends (whichever comes first). Its really fun just driving around to get the snow outta the way, sure beats walking behind my 24" Bolens snowblower (thats the backup for the tractor).

                              When it is done snowing. I hate every flake of it.

                                Whenever I feel ambitious enough, but it'll be with the blower and not a shovel, my kids can do that part....
