    I have seen more old stuff on the road this winter then any other. Mold boards that are just Swiss cheese,totally rusted plows, bent and dented, many trucks with no lights or guides. How do you plow without guides?

    he was broke.

    No money for a new plow after he bought the truck.

    without guides? very hard.
    lights is not a dig deal though, i usually plow running parking lights only and the rear arrow stick on flash. no headlights on is easier to see because you don't get reflection from the lights on the snow, and all the roads i do have street lights.

    Agree. I always shut my lights off when I get into the lot, I'm going to plow. Way to bright otherwise!

    I could not operate without head lights. I would leave the house and have a State Trooper behind me.With my luck. I had a Bronco II that I put a piece of angle iron spanning the gap between the head lights. I mounted a tractor light in the middle. Run with parking lights on and the tractor light. It worked great!
