    Here I a Quick picture I got of one of the custom made "bus plows" that the local school district has and uses around town. They don't use them all the time - only on heavy wet snowfalls. This one uses a couple old forklift counterweights for weight and they also have one with a spreader on it. The blades are 12' and are angled with a worm drive gear.

    don't laugh - I also have a friend that owns a shop over in lansing called "Michigan Off Road Center" and he has a school bus that they lifted and made 4x4. the "cool bus" also has "no more snow days" on the side of it. (sorry the pics so small its the only one I had of it)
