    Don't know why he's in "V" all the time. I'd have the blade angled towards whichever side had the drop off so that it would just roll off and go away. In V he's pushing half of the snow uphill against himself for future plowing.

    I think, as I can not read his mind, he was trying to break up some extremely compacted snow.

    Or just showing off for the camera. Either way it is a pretty cool set up. Thumbs Up

    I bet the blade wouldn't stay angled and the pressure reliefs let go and it went back to V. That is heavy ass snow and a vehicle with insane traction pushing it.

    He angles it when he can but the depth of snow averages 1' in most areas. This snow has all melted and refroze as well that's why it rolls off in chunks. I only watched the first two minutes but there were a couple spots where it was over 2' of snow.

    I don't even know if a regular 3/4 ton or one ton truck could clear that road all the way to the top without breaking down or loosing traction.

    That thing is pretty bad ass, but I think a Cat dozer would be more efficient.
