    It's gonna suck, the ground never had a chance to freeze overnight, temps here stayed in the mid 30s. Maybe but doubtful it will freeze before the snow has to be plowed.

    Thats what I was thinking too, but its already 30 degrees here, I think that it will be fine to plow on, I can't honestly complain since it has been a month since I have plowed ANYTHING. I would love to see 6+ inches this storm, it has finally started accumulating on the pavement.

    This one turned out to be a total bust here. They were calling for 2-4,3-6 but temps are in the mid-30's so we got a little slush on the grass. Hope it goes better for you guys!

    Haha, thats what I figured, believe it or not, it was very easy plowing, I do know one thing, is the traction control is an awesome feature for plowing! Also, another thing I noticed about this truck is that it comes up to temperature very quickly, when I turn on my 05 it takes about 15 minutes at idle to come up to 180-200 degrees, with this truck, it was 5 minutes MAX, I thought that was awesome! Thumbs Up

    I disagree, I feel my traction control makes me slide more on turns in 4hi.

    Huh, I never would have guessed that, of course this was my first plowing experience with this truck so maybe later on I will begin to dislike the traction control, but I thought it helped now.

    Nice pictures. We didn't even get a dusting in my area. Do you know Sterner's Mini Excavation?

    Nope, never heard of them actually...who owns it, and where do they operate out of?
