    Here's my equipment, 87 GMC 3/4 ton with a C-8 Meyer, 85 Honda Big Red with a Cycle Country plow and my Toro snowblower. I guess I'm semi commercial as I take care of a private road, 2 small lots, 1 small school and about 15 driveways by myself. On a rare occasion I can get a friend to ride shotgun and run the shovel. I'll have to wait until the next storm to get some action shots. This is the first liftgate I ever owned and man does it make loading the blower a breeze! Enjoy the pics.

    I've never seen a 3-wheeler plow before. I used a quad this morning, since my tractor is dead. But a 3-wheeler. Thats pretty neat.

    These action shots on the 3 wheeler are from 2 years ago. It plows like a champ. The snow in the pictures is about 4" deep and it was raining while I was plowing.

    Those old honda big red wheelers are a great machine, I'd love to have one again. There was a guy near home that use to build plows for the 3 wheelers. They sold for about 250.

    just when I thought a 3 wheeler couldn't get any more dangerous

    I was waiting for someone to say that. I rode a 3 wheeler out of someones garage, and turned around and went right back in, and said "no I don't feel safe on it".

    It's the rider, not the machine. I like to link 3 wheelers to jetskis. it takes skill to ride a standup but any clown can ride a sitown.

    Even today, if you have a Big Red in real good condition, you can get a very good price for it. I was looking this past summer for an 85 or 86 Big Red 250 in real good shape, but each time I found one someone beat me to it.

    nice pics. i've got an '85 big red, with 16,000 orginal km's. was my grandfather's since new. just changed the battery out last spring......

    funny how everyone thinks a 3 wheeler is dangerous...... did you start your kids out on a trike, or a 2 wheeler??? just need to know the limitations of the machine.

    That's my winter project, a 88 wrangler with 78,000 miles and a bad frame. I have another frame ready to go with better axles, 4:56 gears, 33" tires, 4" lift etc. If we don't have too much snow it should be ready for spring. As it sits now I wouldn't want to post any pics.
    All those dam Wranglers seem to rot the frames by the rear shock mounts because of a poor design. I can stick my hand into the frame on the pass side.:eek:
