    I don't think I've ever seen a dozer any bigger than a D6 in a snow dump.

    But hey if it works, ya might as well.

    I have a video as well but don't know how to upload them. Time is short on this job there is a big playoff game here Sunday so with minimal time to work we use what we have.

    Are all three of your D8's the L series? I've never actually seen a D8L, the only L series Cat dozer I've seen in person was a D9L.

    I have never seen a dozer used to push snow...we just don't get that kind of snow. if we got 8 inches they would just shut the state down, a foot, well that would be the end of the world... that kind of snow????

    Nice! Not sure if your the same company or not but do you have a kid named Mike C aka Mike Jones working for you?

    Thats awesome. Typically when the road graders are out doing public roads you know your in the thickets. This time the road grader had a 6' tall V blade on the front of it. BA. It looked like a train coming down the road.

    I'd like to see the parking lot surface after it's all melted. Those tracks HAVE to leave marks behind on the asphalt.

    That is what I was thinking.....

    But I guess they (client) makes enuff money off one game to afford to resurface the lot...

    the ground is frozen so you don't do much damage at all just some scratch marks. with 500 acres of parking they aren't too worried about it just get it done
