    LOL i run thyem all day long when snows on the ground. Plus these roads are hardly ever used when it snows. I bet i pass maybe 2 cars an hr. Not a big township.

    Thanks. The 6.0 ran good. I goosed it alittle in the video at 29sec. and the back end broke loose on me. Wanted to make sure the 6.0 had it in her lol.:laughing:

    Now that i know how to do videos wait intill next strom i will have good ones. I wish i would of took one of me stacking. I had one hell of a pile going.:nod:

    I cant believe that towns plow roads with pick up trucks! Do you have another truck following you to cover the rest of the shoulder? Seems way more efficient to have a loader with a 12ft blade and wing or a larger truck with plow and wing...ohh well I bet you make some good coin! Beautiful truck by the way!

    Looks like you had a good money maker there. Roads must be nice since there in no back and forth, put the blade down, angle to the right and put her in gear and cruise along listening to some country, makin the green stuff. Looks like a pretty good deal from my standpoint. That is one nice truck also. Plenty of power there to get things done. Have a good year.

    Must be nice plowing roads is that a state bid or county bid. Plowing roads is the best work out there, easy on your truck and lots of money.

    Yea it was nice

    My uncle has the job. Total we have 5 trucks out there. It is a small township. All we use is pickups. We just push back as far as we can. They get the job done. But he does have a Backhoe if we need it.


    Gotta love the older country late 80s and early 90s was the best.

    One road i do is up a good size hill. It had alittle trouble. I only had around 500lbs in the back. I should of had about 800lb.

    Wasn't bad at all.

    We do have alot of cu-de-scas we got to plow. They are a PIA. But most of the pushing is just going forward. Roads are easy.

    Township Bid., My uncle been plowing in that township since 1997.

    Well 90% of the time i was in 1st. Doing about 10-15mph. At around 2,000 rpms. If I'm in 2nd I can do around 15mph at 1500rpms. So most of the time i just used 1st. Taking it nice and slow. Getting paid by the hour.payup
