    Just a few pics from the storm we got nailed with on wednesday. We got 29" of snow within 14 hours. At some points we were getting 3" per/hr and couldnt see the next telephone pole down the road, so for safety we had to sit out a couple hours.
    I know people are gonna ask about the loader, so we made a custom box put on the loader arms in reverse to pull out driveways and theres also a moldboard facing forward to push & stack the snow across the street or in cul-de-sacs. This is used in a 55+ community and is probably the most useful thing i have ever designed.

    thats a nice storm, just about an hour northwest of me is a town called redfield ny located on tughill, back in 2007 they received 146" of snow in a one week period unofficially setting a record. the 24 hr snowfall record was set in 97 in the town of montague near redfield, they got 77" in a 24 hr period there, that would be one hell of a storm!

    Thanks guys. The '11 sits as a backup, dont wanna push with it unless i absolutely have to. Knock on wood, so far i havent needed it.
    And i will say, i will never buy another straight blade after pushing the last 4 storms with this thing!

    06' HD Boss, that is a pretty slick plow set up on the deere. Kudo's.

    As for the storm I will take one every year. That was great. Ya it was tough but it could have been waaaaaaaaayyyyyyyy worse. Like some sleet and rain mixed in.
