    Just thought I share some videos of the equipment in action, I was at the fire hall doing a 24 hr shift so by the time I got home in the morning my crew of guy's had already had most of the fun with the white stuff, the video shows the machines doing clean up. It was very icy under the snow on my properties that have asphalt, the machines where slipping a bit, but managed to do pretty good once you got some speed when pushing. I'll try and get some fresh snow videos this Friday and Sunday because it looks like every one is going to get hammered with snow this weekend in Ontario Canada. I also adjusted the wing speed on my blades last night they move so fast now that you could knock a base ball out of the park with them, ha ha.

    Good luck to every one and plow safely tymusic

    That's funny, I get that allot from people and I enjoy Bubbles, Julian, Ricky and lets not forget J-Roc, that show cracks me up any time I watch it. I actually named my business after my step dad who passed a couple of years ago:angel:, his name was John Vance and he was solid like a rock, this is where J for John and Rock for what he represented to me came from. He helped raise me with my mom since I was 3 and taught me a lot about business, respect and doing a job with the pride. Those things have stuck with me through my life and have helped me build a successful carrier with the Fire Department and build a solid business. I owe allot to the man I call J-Rock. Hope you enjoyed the vids and i'll try to have more next week.:salute:tymusic:)

    That was really thoughtful you and very respectful of your step dad. I got lucky in the step dad department too. You dont realize it really till you are older at least I didnt.
