Sometimes I just hate the FEL on my 8n. It is always in the way trying to turn in my tight driveway. I am a bit of a coward, so I keep my wood pile about 100 yards down the drive. I bring it up every day in a wheelbarrow. If we have a wild fire, I do not want several cords of dry wood next to the house.
Today I had about 4" of snow to plow. Down the drive with the back blade, and a return trip with the FEL full of firewood. Did I mention I love the FEL?
