    Thanks. I can't put the box on with the deflector on. Need to do a little altering of the deflector, but really I don't need the box yet. I'm hoping down the road to put it to use.

    Now that you point that out, it doesn't flash that often does it!? IDK, dealer put it on. Thanks.

    Finally!...its about damn time....and no, I not off your back yet, now you need to post up a vid with box on moving mountains of snow:drinkup:


    As to the comment of not spinning around going the other way - give him time, he will learn the abilities of such a badass machine....he's used to running silly little trucks.:laughing:



    Great Vid Greg....good to see someone is getting some plowable snow lately!Thumbs Up

    You can spin them around??:D I want to push everything to that end of my lot. There are three parking stalls at that end of the lot, and the trailer sits in one. It's a tight spin around. If I push the other way I just have to clean up the street so time wise it's a wash IMO. Plus there is no curb to deal with at the end I push to.

    Thanks much.

    Windrow back and forth a few times and get it all in one big windrow then start pushing the one direction. Nice rig, you will get the hang of it. Also, you probably don't need as much downpressure, your running around on the back tires lol. Not trying to bust your butt, just trying to help.

    Nice vid! looks like the 650 is set to move alot of snow. Maybe unhook that annoying backup beeper, they are obnoxious espically in the middle of the night.

    Very nice setup, where in WI are you located, that building looks familiar.

    You could still turn around to drive to the other side instead of backing up the entire distance.

    Yes! Annoying as heck, and they're on almost all new equipment. Don't want to unhook it and run someone over. I can hear it already in court, "Was the backup beeper working?" --"No I unhook it":cry:

    Thanks Burkartsplow.

    Thanks. I'm in Middleton, it's a suburb of Madison.

    OK guys, I'm not turning around to plow the other direction. It's not that far to back up, and I guarantee I have found the cleanest fastest way to plow the shop I've been plowing for 14 or so years. I know where I want the snow, and I know how to run my machine.Thumbs Up
