    Slow start down here in Westchester County NY. Been snowing since 1PM but only about 4" on the ground at 7PM,

    I went out and did a first pass on the 3 driveways I do as I did not want to wake up at 5AM with 18" on the ground and work with a truck / plow combo I had never plowed with.

    Everything was pretty much as expected, traction is great, the wider / higher HTS plow is much better in the open area's and not as easy to manuover in tight area's. The HTS does vibrate alot more than my poly plow did (scraper / blade harmonics)

    I do wish I had listened to the dealer and installed the leveling kit in the front of my Tahoe as the lower plow bracket scrapes the road as a steep driveway meets the street.

    Its really coming down hard here now - 2"+ per hour.

    Here is some video, it lost quite alot of resolution in the upload. Good pictures / video in the morning......
