    When was the last time you had to use an ice bridge? It scared the @#$% outta me.
    Check out the Pete, it should be part of the removal crew next season. Big.

    I know I would be a little bit worried crossing that ice, It reminds me of the Ice Road Truckers Show

    Operator, @ Hudson/QC, swore it was safer than driving under the sometimes collasping overpasses in montreal.
    Drove across like 2 newbs with seatbelts off windows open and doors unlocked. The return trip was way calmer. Unsettleing when you start thinking where you'd end up IF you did go thru.
    Hope it'll hold the Pete.............

    I was talking to one guy from Worry Free. He stopped me to ask me when I was going to go do certain street cause he was following me around cleaning up the windrow. Man I hate when they do that... They could at least turn some of their lights off so I could see!

    Anyways, buddy was saying they are running 20 of those tractors with blowers...

    Is yours a 2 way blower? Like one of those pronovost ones? I think his was just an inverted...

    I should give you my number so u can call me when the city plowing starts.
    A spiffy 2 way pronovost is $16K, both worry free and I run simple inverted blowers.
    He does have 20 tractors with 2500 +/- resi and I'm working my way up to that amount.
