    I like this one, never seen it before. I always get a kick outta the guys on here who plow in 4x2......I have no clue how they do that in 1/2, 3/4, and even 1 tons......must never have to plow real amounts of snow like that.

    You must plow areas that are pretty flat....plus michigan is predominately flat. I load my truck with 1,200 pounds of salt and with fresh tires, sure I can plow most of my accounts. But there is no chance your plowing real inclines in 2wd with slippery conditions......never in a million years. We have accounts that I can barely navigate let alone plow. We picked up a new one this year, private road and it goes from steep to steeper to insanity....when we have more than a couple inches, I cannot back drag at all because I can't drive back over it....I back up each time and push as much down as possible then shovel the area to garage door....but whatever makes good money for us.

    ..so THAT's what a lowballer looks like

    it prob doesn't have 4x4 which i'm sure is why he wasn't in 4x4...what i DON'T understand is why you would ever plow with a 2WD only truck...yes, there are situations where it works, but clearly there are situations where it doesn't...

    Myself and my dad always plowed in 2WD. Our thinking was its better to get stuck in 2WD and be able to put it into 4WD to get out then to get stuck in 4WD and actually be stuck. We only had a few drives what were to steep for 2WD if you plowed every 3" and didnt get to much ice on it.

    Probably would've helped if he had some weight in the bed.

    Well, here is my response. I say the truck was 4X4 but from the looks of things he broke the front right axle joint and kept running it. It wasnt until he got into the virgin snow cranking the steering wheel that the axle joint decided to push out on the broken axle and blow out the lower ball joint, that was why the right front tire was all out of wack and he could no longer move. He had the weight of the salter and numerous bags of salt so he should have had enough ballast to still back out of the snow or at least wiggle around.

    I am with you on that. He has plenty of weight in the back.

    My favorite part isn't the video, it's the morons that keep saying "he shouldn't be using a half ton"
