    i had to get the D6 9U known as THE HOOD to do a little plowing, talk about a lot of snow. first i did a little angle blading in 5 gear for about 4 miles, then i cut the road in to the EL MINE right down to the gravel which was about 1/4 of mile. i did about 8 passes to get the snow back so it wouldn't drift in again. then on the way back home i got asked to widen out about 1.5 miles of road for the diamond drillers. THE HOOD did very well whipping the snow back and performed very well for a cat that was under water fro 3 years.

    That's awesome, the pics and the HOOD.

    Must be nice, we lost all our snowcover in the last week, temps hit 70 the other day. I need to live where winter is longer.
