    Plowing the condo drive, it's a long one. About 1/8 mile or so.


    Finishing up one of many residentials, this was just after we got some daylight:

    Blowing snow:


    Some residential streets were nearly im-passable without 4WD. I helped a mailman get un-stuck, twice...


    Coming to an end for this one, that's a big scoop!


    And one last one... My brother jackknifed the trailer with the bobcat on it. He has admitted he will no longer call the '08 a "show truck" again, hahaha. It dented the bumper, smashed the break-away battery box on the trailer.

    Nope, no blades. I'd like to try one next season though. I think it would be awesome for confined areas and there has to be an advantage to being able to clearly see both sides of the blade:)

    Looks like you had fun

    So many people seem to drive skids on to trailers now instead of backing them on.

    Is there a difference to which direction it's facing? I know my buddies 543 Bobcat would be risky pulling it on without any ballast in the bucket. Backing on is the only way we can load it on the trailer.

    I only back on the trailer. The bucket could have been lower. What ever works, you look well organized.

    Where do you find time to take pics while plowing. LOL

    I just want to get done.

    Great Pics!

    Re backing vs. pulling on forward, I always get the willies when pulling on forwards. I prefer to back on, my brother likes to drive on forwards. I agree he has the bucket too high there.... Also if you have an open cab, you'd definitely want to back on in this weather but there is a front door there.

    Normally we don't haul either skid. The deere sits at one condo complex all winter and the bobcat sits at our shop(well our garage haha). We have a medium size condo complex 2 blocks from the garage(and a couple residentials on the way)so we drive it there.Due to the amount of snow we trailered it to one subdivision because no, the '08 does not have a plow on it. He was driving by and decided to stop so the condos could be banged out faster.

    We have 35+ residentials.

    Normally we don't take pics but I think it's sorta neat and besides I can use the pics in the future for advertising purposes.
