    What's up felllas, I have been visiting this site for quite some time and I finally had some time to register. This seems like a great place to hang out when I am praying for snow, just like everyone else. I run two plows, a Ram 2500 with a Myer Plow and Trynex Sand Pro Spreader, and a Ram 3500 with a new Fisher 9' Plow and Fisher Speedcaster Spreader. They are sitting idle in my garage along with all the salt. If all else fails, at least we can all make some mean jerky.

    Welcome to the board! :)

    You will find tons of useful informations on this site. Anytime if you have a question or problem, you can post it here. (but be sure to use search feature before you post, because alot of things have already been covered in this site).

    Enjoy!

    I am thinking with all my salt I will start making ice cream. At least I will have something ice related to do.

    Welcome Andy!

    Wxm6 is right about the "search" feature - many aspects of snow & ice control have been discussed here in the past, and a particular question you have may already have been answered!

    Don't worry about the "hazing" - everyone here is just a little restless right now. What we all need is a good SNOW EVENT! (hint!) :D

    If we could get some snow - maybe 15-20" - then we could gripe about too much snow, the dumb customers, plowing in cars, dumb drivers, how we're not getting enough sleep... Might even have something to do besides griping on PlowSite about nothing to do.

    Big welcome, Andy.

    The only haze I'm looking for is the haze of snow exiting my blade side.

    Here snow, snow, snow.

    Welcome Andy,
    Most of the regulars are really gung-ho about telling people to do a search before posting, and I see in your case, it was felt that you needed to be told twice, even though you didn't ask a question. I guess it doesn't occur to them that depending on your choice of keywords when searching that you may not find what you are looking for. And they don't seem to give new members the benefit of the doubt.

    My best advice is to start your threads with "I did do a search and ......."

    Again, welcome to Plowsite

    I would ammend that advice to atually doing the search before saying you did. Otherwise you will get responses with links to all the threads you could have found with a search.

    Not from me though hehe.

    JK we are all on this site to help. No wild initiation.

    Any advice is welcome.

    I don't want just lake effect, I'm a little to far east of you to get any. :)
    You are in Grand Rapids.
    I am in Grand Blanc.
    Pronounced "blank" for those not in Michigan.

    I guess they cound't find any rapids :)

    Welcome Andy! And just so its clear, we'll decide to whom, & when any hazing is done around here ;)

    Hey Deisl,
    We're working on that same project here too. Should be fun.

    We had that on a C-8 Meyer.

    Worked real well, used it for 6 or 7 years, before V-Plows and wings became popular.

    ~Didn't windrow and was thus less flexible than some of the newer hardware.
