    I hope that was strictly for demonstration purposes. Cuz I can dang near shovel that fast. Could've done it in half the time with my truck.

    So what happens when you hit a drain grate or manhole or uneven pavement?

    Well get your shovel out and find a lot comparable in size and get somebody to film you. I have $100.00 you can't beat that time with your shovel.

    pusher

    The village within the town I live in has one of these. It works great! You get the push capacity of a large pusher, but the ability to go down the road to the next lot.

    Neat concept, but for serious production I prefer one of these:

    Actually, I prefer 2 of these, because I have 2 already.

    That guy is having way to much fun moving snow! I love the sideways drift around the corner.

    You get to repair the drain grate, manhole, or uneven pavement.

    Yeah, that's why I like trip mechanisms, whether spring loaded or rubber edges.

    Mark, I'm with you on shoveling that with a $5 walmart special. Isn't that a pretty expensive pickup? Some people are impressed at the mere sight of big equipment, but I'm left wondering who the meathead was that thought that truck was needed for what, 4-6" of powder? I don't know the prices of large equip, but wouldn't a small loader or Bobcat offer a more cost-effective job? So how many F350's with back & front plows can be leased or purchased for the same cost as one of those monsters?
