    You guys are getting crushed! This massive band has stayed a mile or so right off our lakeshore so we're not getting hit with any more than flurries. I have skid steer, V blades tons of experience willing to bring up a small crew to help out. PM me

    Just an fyi. Anyone with a trucknife any sort will be useless. Loaders with buckets, not pushers. That's about all that will make any progress.

    So please excuse my ignorance here, but how do you deal with lake effect snow, I have seen pictures where the snow is six feet deep. Do you guys have tons of extra equipment and operators on stand by to just plow non stop? What about side walks do guys just give up when there is six feet of snow on top of them?

    Yea they are inundated with snow they will concentrate on opening roads first I bet you hear about cars getting plowed over as well

    You won't see pickups till they have a space enough to use one!

    Straight blades will be useless...v blades along with skid steers are very productive if you know how to use them together. Thats all we used in Baltimore and we cleared 3-5ft of snow that was on the ground for a week before we got there.

    2 skid steers available, one with a huge blower and 3-5 trucks with v blades
