    I used to have the strangest once a season usually driveway that was app. a 1/2 mile long that I could only plow with my loader or dozer.The client was a gizillionaire who had matching his and her bran new Fisher plows sitting in the heated garage.They were afraid to use them because the grade and slopes were so steep I had to watch to make sure I had oil pressure..They only called me after a blizzard type storm and they didn't mind paying me boocoo dollars.

    2 miles of cottage road, to keep clear, lots of steep banks and sharp turns, hills to lose the equipment in. Heavily staked to stay out of trouble. Got stuck 3 times in 7 years.:help: And once was stuck in a partially frozen swamp with a old 1970 1070 Case tractor with no differential lock. :dizzy: Had to apply the brake to each wheel seperately depending which one had traction. And no it wasnt fun.:mad:
