    Since this is a pics folder, here is a pick of my plow truck thats in the video. Its a 97 F250 PowerStroke with a 9' 2" boss V plow on it. Has a tommy lift on the back that works well for ballast. Nothing super special but it definately gets the job done. I have a set of semi agressive Dick Cepeks on it that do surprisingly well in the snow.

    This pic is from last year right after I put the plow on. Now it is mounted higher and I have air bags in the front so the plow doesn't sit so close to the ground on the sides.

    You probably could've made it through there by driving half as fast...that would've prevented all the snow from blowing onto your windshield.

    But it looked cool him going that fast. Slow&Boring vs. Fast and cool. I'd go with number 2

    No offense, but some day when you have your own equipment you'll realize how ridiculous you sound.

    im not saying to hit a drift at 20mph, but what he did was not fast! it wasent fast at all. He hit that at the exact speed i would have.

    It looks a lot faster on video than it really was. I hit it hard enough to throw the snow that far because the drift was fairly hard and the sides of the driveway are higher than the plow is right now, so if I don't hit it with a certain amount of speed, it doesn't throw the snow up over the pile on the side. Kinda stinks, but the snow will be melting soon anyway so the problem won't last forever. When the sides of the driveway are lower I plow slower (I have never had the snow this high by my driveway before, hense my desire to record it).

    Ironically, half of what I plow is visible in that video... the big boss plow is kind of overkill, but it sure beats shoveling ;-)

    Anyhow. I hope everyone enjoys the movie.
