    Just curious what you are seeing, how your plow is holding up?

    50+ hours.. Blew a tire(scraped a curb in a small gravel lot and blew side wall) and a small plow leak. Other than that all good

    Got about 21" by my. North Jersey.
    24 hours of plowing, busted one of my night hawk lights. Should be repairable. Other than that it was very successful day of plowing and salting.

    great storm with no breakdowns, one very small damage report. Only problem was how quick was snowing and drifts, properties a few hours later were like never was even there

    we were 25 hours plow down(i was only out for 8). no problems at all except for having to do the same area every hour because it was coming down so hard.
    8 trucks, a skidsteer with 10 foot pusher, and a case wheel loader with 14 foot pusher, and we could not keep up until it stopped showing around midnight

    took some red powder off near the cutting edge from finding curbs on properties that called for the first time with 30 inches or so. and found out the stock michelin tires on my truck do not like deep snow. otherwise everything was great and made some money.

    pushed for 4 straight days down in Washington, DC Metro Area - 30+ inches in most places. My Western has held up better than any brand of plow I've ever used. I am an absolutely sold! Last year, we had 6 brand new Myers plows all have serious issues leaving me trucks down and in serious binds. We sold all those plows and got new Westerns and these things are beasts! Western will be the only brand I buy from here on out.
