    I don't work the 'Hoe hard, but watching my dad plow with it is downright painful.

    Checked the truck and plow over before the next storm. I decided to diagnose the whelen edge 9000 since it was sorta warm out. I figured out I had a bad strobe tube.

    IT worked when ever it felt like it but now it dont work period after messing around with it.. I thought it was making a bad connection but the tube is shot.

    Yes sir it would handle a pusher pretty good too. Not fast like a loader but it will get the job done.

    I was talking to the guy at United rentals and he was telling me that lulls make a lousy snow machine because the chain that drives the boom doesn't do well with lateral pressure from a snow box and hitting things with the box can severely damage the chain. He said risk wasn't worth the reward with the cost of repairing/replacing the chain drive system on that boom.

    Just throwing it out there.

    No chain in this machine I believe its a ram inside pushing the boom out.

    EDIT: I just looked at the book it has a ram inside pushing the extension boom out.
