This morning after I had a few hours sleep, I got up and got my John Deere 2305 out of the tractor garage and I had decided to plow the snow off the hill, it was the only I could see me being able to get my car up the hill. I get to the hill and I hear a couple tractors following me, I had competition. A medium sized New Holland, and a Kubota B series were coming down the road behind me. So we all stop at the top of the hill and we discuss our action plan on removal of the snow.
We decided the Guy on his New Holland would go down the hill and call me on my cell phone, Guy would plow the edge of the road and then would stop at the end of our road and block anyone from trying to go up the road, a few minutes later I get a call and then John on his B-series and me on my John Deere then went down the road about 20 feet apart.
So one pass down and one pass up we had the entire width of our road plowed.
One I did notice and that is the fact that I have always heard that the turf tires are the best in the snow, I was always somewhat skeptical of this claim, I am now going to say it and I am not skeptical anymore. It is true of the three tractors I had the best traction as I had never slipped once going down the hill or back up. The other two with the industrial tires slipped more then once on the hill.
After the hill was done, I parked the Deere at my place and Guy gave me a ride back down to the parking area and I drove my car back to the house. I then plowed my driveway and a elderly neighbors drive.
