      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Lawn Tractors

Recommended Posts

How do they work for moving snow.... I would assume that a blower attatchment would work great.. A blade though I'm not as positive.. I had a 4 wheeler with a blade and it was ok but not great... I have a funny shaped driveway so it seems that I had to chase the snow alot around corners.....

I have an older simplicity with a blower on the front of it and it works great. I'm going to be selling it soon though, because I bought a blade for my wheeler as well. I can't imagine a lawn tractor would be very good at all for moving snow with a blade. I'd stick with the wheeler, or look at a mower/blower.

I have a 14 hp tractor that I bought a blade for. It works well for the heavy stuff that clogs up a blower. It does not work well at all if there's too much snow, you just sort of have to practice a bit and you'll know when you need something else. I also have walk behind blower so I can get it done either way.

Chains and wheels weights are necessary when using the blade. I have a Simplicity and the blade comes off and on pretty quickly.

I will admit that I am jealous of my neighbor who has a blower for his tractor. They can pretty much do anything and don't have to worry about future snow storage capacity.

Snow blowers work great on the garden tractors. A two stage blower is better than a one stage snow thrower. I use a 70’s model 9020 Simplicity with a 52” single stage thrower and it really eats and throws the snow! I put lots of weights on the back for traction. I don’t use chains because I don’t want the cement all scratched up. If you have a 4-wheel drive tractor you should be able to get by without the weights. I also use the 04 Simplicity Legacy with the loader to pile the snow up farther out to help stop the snow before it gets to the yard. With the blade on a tractor or 4 wheeler you make piles and ridges and if you get a lot of snow you have no place to go with more snow. With the snow blower you don’t end up with the big piles. Also a cab on the tractor is nice. Lots of snow dust when blowing snow.

My older lawn tractor with single stage blower works great! in all snow. 12 HP, wheel weights and chains.Only problem is when drive gets iced I'm on a hill and the chains dont always move the machine.On flat surfaces no stoppin it! Done up to 30 inches snow and the heavy stuff a little PAM fry spray in the augers & chute keeps it clear. FINE SETUP!

    • I took a short ride the other day but still a little chilly out in the breeze. Streets were pretty good as they were out sweeping them before the last snow. Saw a lot of bikes out the last couple of days. Don't forget to put your new licence tag on as I almost did.
