    Sunday, Sunday, Sunday...........

    Puttin' out the fire on a Hemi powered Ram!

    Wow......fully involved fire indeed. Poor guy. Wonder what started it? If the persons whose truck roasted is a plowsite member we'd love to hear what happened. Hope he is ok.

    My truck is in flames too.....just a much safer kind.

    Funny thing is that the same thing happened here last storm on the same truck but this one was white with a sander on the back. The hydrolic line broke and caught fire

    Since it was a block buster video location it probably means he was plowing for US Maint.................now another reason to avoid US Maint

    That almost happened to me a few years ago. First time I plowed with my new fisher on my new truck. It had underhood hydrolics and something in the valve body box leaked. Sprayed fluid all over my new engine. Smoke but no flame. the dealer fixed the leak but never did clean up all the mess. That dealer no longer does fisher.

    Always a shame to see something go up in flames. Still has a nice utility body and hoist on the back for the new truck!

    I lost my truck this past July due to fire. With all the extra wiring running for the dual batteries, plow, etc a wire somewhere rubbed through and it caught fire. I was lucky to have parked it in the street instead of the driveway by the garage. My auxilary fuel tank did not ignite thank God, I had just filled it and there weren't any fumes to ignite. It was a 1998 Chevy K2500hd. Remember to check your wires for wear as often as you can!

    That's why I have 2 (ABC) five pound fire extinguishers in my truck.
    ( hey they were free, takem their yours)
    If it going to catch on fire it will be me doing it, not some stupid failure. You can put out a bunch of fire with a 5 pounder.
    *Make sure your tranny dip stick is in all the way too. I have seen a few vehicles burn cause of tranny fluid getting on an exhaust manifold.
    *Check the clamps on your tranny cooler lines too, I had one rust out and the line came off. The 12 quarts of fluid sparyed the whole grill with tranny fluid. Looked like I hit a huge deer,red stuff dripping every where! Worse part is the C-6 takes a case of fluid + with the cooler. Who carries 12 quarts with them? Thank god I for my leatherman tool.

    Just for info, firefighter will tell you that if you have an under hood fire, be careful opening the hood and have a prop ready. The heat from the fire will take the tension out of the hood springs causing the hood to slam back down.:nono:
