    Moderator - formal protest against most of these posts

    They fall into 2 categories - silly and sillier.

    People are having entirely too much fun with this back and forth banter.

    I wonder if we could trade the Aland Islands for Greenland? With so many PM members from there we must own them.

    I think most of them might not put the operator in the right position with a snowblower and a simple one would be easy to make. Could even start with a cheap trailer dolly.

    Take us over? No, the premise in The Mouse that Roared was to declare war and then LOSE so they could benefit from U.S. funds as in the Marshall Plan.

    A couple years back I bought a small 120v inverter stick welder from Northern. As an accessory they sell a TIG torch which can be used in lift start mode with that welder.

    As I said before, you clearly are an outsider (to firearms). I suspect you are also not too familiar with electronics either.

    My drive is shorter than yours so I still have my 824. What I did was weld up an extended chute by grafting a used late model tall chute onto the gear ring from the old model. I can now throw snow...

    My Take: Either hire it out or modify your existing blower to be more like a tractor. I'm not familiar with your Ariens but if it's anything like my older one the drive housing is of a fairly heavy...

    It seems I'm not the only one who felt that Trump was not seriously proposing to buy Greenland. I wonder if it was leaked long before the WSJ article and helped persuade Denmark to fund the airport....
