    Doesn't look familiar yet, but the ice season isn't over yet. Where I work they did that with a loader a long time ago, it was much worse though.

    That's what they get for laying off more then half the older guys and hiring cheap foreign help instead.

    They couldn't even completely clear the streets today, but there out there clearing a damn ice rink....makes alot of sense. Welcome to Maine!

    Just another Bobcat trying to find its destiny. A big white boat anchor.

    There is a guy plowing on the local lake rite now with a Chevy 2500HD and there is only 8" of ice. He puts his truck through almost every year.

    I've actually been fortunate enough to never have to make that call. At least for nothing like loosing equipment thru the ice. Sure I've gotten stuff stuck or broken minor things but nothing that I'd have to be afraid to call my boss about.

    Equipment is one thing to sink, life is another thing to lose. :(

    I recall last winter, or maybe the year before, a fellow near Edmonton, Alberta was clearing a pond with a skidsteer to make a hockey rink for his young kids, and went through the ice. Sadly, his son watched it happen, and ultimately the poor fellow couldn't get out of the cab and drowned.
