    were expecting some snow tomorrow or tuesday so i figured id put the plow on the truck. after i pinned the plow i was just playing with the hydraulics to make sure all is fine, and found a crack in the plow frame where the a-frame mounts too.

    Yah the 20cm for wednesday doesn't bother me much cuz I'm getting restless at home not doing anything really productive but tomorrows 5cm isn't really necessary. I hate going out foor a few cms of snowm the way I look at it is go big or go home!

    I charge by the month so less snow the better.....but my clients haven't seen me in awhile so a snow fall to show I'm still alive will be good.

    I wonder if you could also weld a steel block underneath it? Maybe not a good idea, because if it is always cracking there, and it stops, that means it's going to crack somewhere else. Do you slam into the snow at full angles?

    D desantis I also charge by month but there is a surcharge after 230cms but like u said my clients haven't seen me since november 18th lol so showing my face wouldn't be a bad thing

    Rehost I don't usually slam it when its angled purposely but it happens sometimes. I welded a quarter inch plate underneath my other plow in the same spot n I haven't had problems so I guess I'm gonna do the same on this one n hope it works just as good

    Good idea on the surcharge I got screwed a bit the winter before last. How is the market in Westmount someone told me the prices were going down, its not that great in my area either.

    Yah its the second year now that were enforcing the surcharge but there's a lot of ppl who are not happy with it. The market didn't realy go down, the prices are the same but the generatiion of ppl that live there are getting cheaper and want way too much for wat we charge
