    well, it's official, i've been de-virginized!!

    i plowed for the very first time this morning, other than with 4-wheelers and Walkers.

    WOW, what a blast.

    hats off to you veteran plowers, i can see where this could be stressful and frustrating.....but fun too!!

    with having to deal with drivers, pedestrians and other obstacles.

    hmmm...now to get efficient.

    I mounted a new 7' 6" Boss Power-V, smart hitch II, urethane edge and smartlock cylinders on my 2002 GMC crew cab Duramax with a topper....pita to see out of!!

    i'm bidding snow removal for next winter, i can see a single wheel 1-ton (bank and factory bids) in the future for this type of work.

    Nice! Looking Good! Certainly better than my rust bucket :) I'd put a snow deflector (flap) on the top of that boss though...otherwise you might end up with some chips in the paint of that nice looking truck. :D Just a thought!

    Just think, you can take the whole family with you too to show them all the fun you have plowing!!:waving:

    Good Luck in your new adventure, that is a real nice looking rig!!

    CaptDevo, nice looking combo from a fellow Iowan.

    I live in eastern Iowa and did not get a flake here from that storm. Glad to hear that you at least did- we still have some time though for something fierce to happen. Until then, Bring on the snow, Hawkz

    Very sweet rig. Good luck with it, I have a Boss and love it. I think I am going to upgrade to a V plow next year, Let me know how it works for you for the remainder of the year. Give us an update at the end of March.

    Very nice rig.
    They all tend to look nice when they're new.
