That property comes close to filling our trailer. Way back when we were using our ez-dumper for a leaf box, we'd fill it 2-3 times. It's nice to have ample space.


We have had one snow event, about 4".

That's it. Not even any salt runs. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that things will turn around, but it's not looking good I guess we're fortunate to have gotten to plow this season, I know some guys haven't been out at all.

Ryan,
Do you by any chance have any (or could you take a few) pics of your 3-point to SSQA adapter? I really like the picture from page 23 with the six way blade. I am going to build one with one of my old blades. Did yall build yall's or was it factory?

Hey if you dont mind me asking where did you get your fork attachment for the mini ? And is it a bobcat size brackets?

Found a pic of our adapter. We bought it, but it could easily be fabricated. Just a rectangular frame with skid steer plates welded on one side and 3-point adapters on the other.

The rear blade is a land pride, we bought it with the tractor. We don't use it very much, but they are pretty cheap compared to most attachments.

We purchased the forks through Ditch Witch when we bought the machine.

The attachment plate is universal for toro, DW, vermeer, and others. The only machine that uses a different plate (to my knowledge) is bobcat.

A few snow pictures from last week. We ended up with about 2". Snowing really good here right now, I'll try to snap some when we go out later.
