No, I have told myself I am not taking it apart because it is too nice and original. :-)

Take a pair of nitrile gloves that you wear when you do messy Rover repairs and wear then under a decent pair of gloves.

I use them for ultra cold hockey games and on the mountain on sub zero days and they work a treat. Bonus - nitrile gloves are touch screen friendly so you still post on D-90 between blower passes.

The only time my hands were really sweaty is when I used them for playing hockey. And you can regulate heat by taking the outside glove off. As long as you keep them on should stay warm. It is pretty crazy how much moisture/heat they can keep in tho.

I ended up getting a great deal on a smaller Toro from a local shop. 2 year warranty and a 2 year "guaranteed to start". If its not enough I'll upgrade in a few winters.

I might just get a plow on the tractor like evilfij's setup. I have a big thrower on it now but it needs work to run. The small Snapper I have cleans up the driveway pretty well and have a lot of blacktop. Was thinking the ideal setup would be one of the kids on the Snapper opening things up and I would be on the Bohlens taking swipes with a plow.

Btw - ran almost the whole time wearing the nitrile gloves. I did get cold for a bit nut threw on some ski gloves over them.
