Well it has been quite a while since I made a contribution here, and even now I am not admitting to anything but I do have a question: You know those jugs that windshield washer fluid comes in?? Well do you folks how long it takes to unwrap and extricate one of them from the final stage of a 3 stage snow blower? Just askin'. :D ;D
 The answer, as it turns out, is about 20 freezing cold minutes and you will likely tear up your gloves in the process.

Probably not as long as it takes to unwrap 50' of extension cord or garden hose from a 6' wide tractor PTO driven snow blower. (Don't ask me how I know this).  ;D
Under bark there's boards and beams, somewhere in between.
Cuttin' while its green, through a steady sawdust stream.

Fence wire and garden hoses are not very exciting. I have to say the snow looked like a ran a Smurf through a wood chipper. Such a pretty blue hue ALL over. Like a giant snow cone. :D

OG, I would gladly have to extricate the plastic bottle from the snow blower if it meant I could have some snow to plow, shovel, throw, ski in.
