    What are some things you guys keep on hand while plowing. Meaning in the vehicle in case of breakdowns.

    SAM hydraulic oil, spare coil, spare lynch pins & hitch pins, basic set of hand tools, spare fuses, black electrical tape, ball peen hammer, and a multimeter. Oh, and a German Shepard.

    Besides some of the things previously mentioned.... I always carry at least 1 if not 2 extra pairs of dry gloves.

    Perfect items thanks, and I just thought of one as well. a first aid kit and some triangles or small cones.

    I never thought of the wiper blade. My buddy actually broke one on his truck a couple storms back. what a pita that was having to order the whole arm and all.

    I keep a small floor jack in the tool box incase I need to short chain the blade. I can't remember if i've had to use for that yet but it did come in handy to re-seat my wheel when my lugnuts came loose.
