    When plowing what causes the most damage to your truck?

    Thanks.

    The most complaints I have heard are body damage from backing into something

    And then tranny problems

    Usually cars that are covered completely with snow are hard to see so sometimes we back into them. We also have 10 foot concrete walls the you can slip into. Ususally it's just poles, cars, and walls. Still never hit a building yet ( knock on wood) *

    IMO, DRIVERS cause the most damage to a truck. I'm sure concrete walls, lightpoles, other cars (although not in all cases), etc., do not jump out at the truck. More than likely it is operator error.
