    Excellent video. My buddy is a filmmaker and I have him lined up to do the same but we haven't had a plowable snow yet!!!! Not much fun filming us salting.

    You probably know this but I will offer it as a suggestion anyway. When you guys line up three wide, if you stagger your stance and all angle the same way you will move the same amount of snow and not leave the crumbs behind since your blades are not end to end to end. Thus eliminating having to go back and pick up the trailers.

    awsome movie, I love it. Im glad you guys like to screw around a bit also. It cant be serious all night long or it wouldent be any fun! I like the part in the big parking lot when all three of you where togeather and also the high speed plowing. I love it!!!
     

  16. Not true.
    The reason for putting all the trucks together like that is to move the snow to the end of the lot, NOT to just windrow it to one side....Therefore, the blades have to be touching to complete the big scoop....
