    Hello all- new to the site- first post, hope this works. I have enjoyed the site for some time now, great information and pictures. Thought I might post some video of me and the kids plowing last year after a big storm. We let it accumulate all the previous day and night. When all said and done, close to a couple feet. Hardest part was getting out of the garage without getting stuck...kids loved it.

    Great video! It's so nice to have your own plow to move so much snow so quickly!

    im not trying to be critical of you, but why not park with the blade facing out so you can just make your first pass as you exit the garage? i dont plow all that often, but when the ol '78 is in operable condition i always back it into a parking spot, or in front of the garage if i know its supposed to snow overnight. that way there is no fighting that first drift to turn around. just my.02. anyways love the vid and its good to see the young uns out gettin their feet wet. :nod:

    Hey man welcome to plowsite. Nice video. Random question, but do you know what camera you used to tape it? The quality seems pretty good.

    WOW- that's a lot of snow! Do you do any other drives of just your own? I'd throw some ballast in the truck, as well as parking the night before with the plow facing out- would have made your life A LOT easier to be able to push out right from the garage. I always park my truck plow out (in my driveway), so I can clear my drive in a few easy passes, then be off to my clients' without having the battle snowdrifts backwards :dizzy:

    Nice truck though- looks to be mint!

    Yes, that was a bit of snow. We are in the Lake Erie Snow belt (@ 110-120 inches/yr) I use the truck only for my drive (so I skip the ballast). The truck and plow (when on) is longer than my garage, so I need to pull into the garage to hook-up....hence the backing out fiasco. I don't drive it much, so I keep it in the garage. I just did not want to get it stuck in a bad spot where I could not get at it with my wife's Denali- especially when you hear the snow scrubbing the frame. I has been a really good truck- 140K on the odometer. Thanks for the post.

    Looks like a fun and easy drive to plow. Long straight ones like that are really nice to do.

    i love the lake effect snow. Wish i still lived over o=in munson though. Lived right on the back side of Alpine Valley could walk there in a few minutes through the woods. We got so much snow just in that spot it seemed. Id drive into chesterland and there wouldnt b nearly as much snow there and its only 6 miles away

    In Broadview Heights we get a decent amount of snow -- it's one of the higher points in cuyahoga county so often it is snowing there when it isn't snowing other places around Cleveland. My buddy in Lakewood would be pissed when I was out plowing all night and he wouldn't have anything laying yet.
