    I took this video today while I was plowing with my uncle today. It's 1991 Ford L9000 with an 11' plow and 11' wing plowing the Bartlett Road in Belgrade Maine. Sorry that we was only plowing about 2 inches of snow. But, it's a pretty good video of what it's like to plow in a big truck.

    Nice video, I really like the side blade, see if he will make a video of the controls at work and some out side shots of the truck plowing.

    I'm the one who did the filming. I will try to get some shots of the controls and some out side shots next storm.

    I'm only 17 so his isurance won't cover me. In a couple years I will be all done school so I will drive for him then

    I didn't get any plowing videos yesterday. But, I did get a video of my uncle running his CAT 928G loader, loading sand into the body of his 1992 Ford L9000. Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7jr2g8vVXV4 to wach the video.

    Ya, there is 2 levers for the plow, 2 levers for the wing, 1 lever for the fron dump and 1 lever for the regular back dump. There is also a sander control that has spinner speed and chain speed. It's not that hard to figure out after you done it for a while.
