    After having so much fun last summer with the 61 Original around the pacific northwest I was waiting for the winter months and praying to get some snow so I could try out the non trip blade. Well the stars aligned yesterday afternoon and the snow fell for about 2 hrs but only within a few mile radius which thankfully was at my house. I have been warned by many that the non trip blades can be a deadly ride if you hit a solid lip or rock it will send you over the front in a matter of a second. I had the skids set at 3/4 inch and was very cautious but man did I have some fun !!

    Granted I only goy 2 inches of snow but my road is 60 ft long so it made for a good sized pile at the end. The Cub had plenty of power and great traction.
    The sun is out now and the snow will be gone in no time

    What a great picture, Don.
    That non-trip blade goes perfectly with your 61CC.

    But, my favorite picture is of Both your 61's, together! :thumbs up:

    The 61 looks great Don. I too love plowing snow with my CC. We got 6-8" last Friday in mid Mi. and I used my 122 to clear my drive. When I have time I try to do a few neighbors drives as well for more seat time. If I get to the house across the street from me I sometimes get a pie out of the deal!

    had 3 tons dropped and spread in an hour. Traction wasn't great in the loose stuff when the blade took a big bite. We are looking forward to the next drop so we can spread & fine tune it .
