Ready for winter

The hard top for this side by side is all metal and very heavy. Dh decided to ask young neighbor guy if he would help him set it on top, which he did, so that was good. There was no way I would have been able to help him do it. Dh got it all bolted down and the lights wires hooked up and now he just needs to buy a windshield wiper now and it's all done. It's ready to start plowing snow.

His old snow plow blade for the quad is about the size of one side of this one, haha. DH put the old quad snow plow up for sale on Marketplace yesterday and had it sold in a few hours. He had 10 people messaging him about it, so he just decided whoever actually says they are on their way first is first in line, LOL. The first person wanted him to deliver it about 2 1/2 hours away. Um....No. LOL. The second was a local lady but her hubby is out of town and she had to wait a few days until he's back. In the meantime all the others started messaging. One said she was waiting to hear back from her dad but she thought as soon as he got a hold of her he could come get it. Another said he could come in the morning. Dh said I won't be here in the morning, but if it's still available in the afternoon you can come and get it. Then another said he was working all weekend and couldn't come until Monday. DH said he wasn't going to hold it for anyone, so if the ad is still up Monday he can contact dh back if he wants. Then the one lady got a hold of her dad, who got directions and he was here about an hour and a half later.
Dh used that quad for plowing for 4 winters and we got  out of it what we've put into it, so can't complain.


  1. Thanks for the picture. It looks like he is set for snow. I learned the hard way not to wait around for buyers. It is great it is sold and out of the way.

  2. I had no idea what a side-by-side was but now it's so obvious. And your husband is much more than a "handy" man - he's obviously very clever!

  3. Maybe before snow falls, he and the guy who piled up snow can come to an agreement on how the snow is going to be plowed so it is not a bother.

  4. It always makes me laugh in a not funny way, when people request from obviously a friendly seller, not a business, silly add ons, like free delivery 2+ hours away. I guess it doesn't hurt to ask, but I wonder if they ever get takers.

  5. That's a nice set-up! We have a Bobcat skid-steer loader my husband uses to plow our driveway. If we didn't have that we'd probably get something like what you have. At one time we had a blade for one of our 4-wheelers but it didn't work very well.

    1. DH is going to love it. That blade on the old quad (which didn't have reverse, LOL) was just too small for what he has to plow
