    We got about a total of 5 inches of some sticky sticky snow. It was hard to stay on top of this one but It was great. I got to plow for 17 hours straight, needless to say I could have and probally gone longer, but sleep was sounding real good, my snowthrower guy was wimping out, and I was up and ready for this storm a good 12 hours before i actually got to go out there. I had a good night and day for sure though....despite the fact that I busted a hydro hose, and popped a rear tire..still had a good time and was a good night, and I made some good money!!

    Thanks!!

    I don't know for fact...but It happend while stacking. I think it somehow jammed in between my mount and my a-frame, and just blew. I immediately lost my ability to angle, and go up. so I got out of the truck to check and there was hydro fluid coming out of the left angler hose. What sux real bad is that it was a brand spanking new hose!! good thing I still had my old ones in the back of my truck. Switched one out. It took a whole quart of fluid to fill er back up. Got my angling right back. I learned my lesson though...to always have as much back up parts with you, It's ruff out there.

    Did you have a front end load or skid steer in that lot? Looks kinda big for just a pick-up.
