    This is located in southern Ohio. We normally only get two or three snow events each winter. usually 3" or 4". except for this year, of course. It is two wheel drive so It wouldn't work very well in colder climates. He has put chains on the dual tires and added concrete railroad ties for weight. It appears to have been some sort of a semi truck in a previous life. You actually sit sideways in the cab, look to the right to plow, then to the left to back up or to head down the road. not sure how he steers it, whether it is hydraulic or conventional steering wheel. obviously something controls the front wheels. This is not mine but has been around the area for decades. He has put a lot of work into it. Very unique.

    For the future try right clicking the photo and saving it or copying the URL instead of posting a whole screen shot.

    Damn Mac users ;)

    right click?

    are you kidding me? i was doing good to get these photos posted! this aggravating mac doesn't even have a right click, or a left click. i guess i shouldn't be attempting something over my head. I better stick to plowing. What the heck is a url?
