Nice little 10" Storm up here! Potsdam, NY

    Got a good 10" at my house in Colton, NY and a bit less in Potsdam (10 miles away) where all of my apartments and plow accounts are. Fiasco with my new plow (they accidentially sold my blade... don't ask) so I rode shotgun with a buddy until I picked up my truck with a loaner 8' 2" VXT Poly until my 9' 2" VXT comes in tomorrow. First time I have every plowed with a truck, it is a monster to say the least. Can't wait to get the 9' 2" tomorrow. Logged 3 hours on it today, really happy with the set up.

    Here are a few pics (afterthought, sorry) I took tonight of my driveway and walk. Still spitting, will probably get a few more inches before morning.

    Another few hours this morning cleaning up my two apartment complexes (in between a clogged toilet call and a showing). Here's a picture of the new truck and the loaner 8' 2" VXT Poly. Truck just clicked 400 miles and have about 5 hours of plowing on it.

    Thanks everybody, I have rode shotgun in a few other trucks with various set ups. This truck without any ballast seems to do really well comparatively. I am thinking about putting maybe 600 lbs. in it, the 9' 2" is about 40 lbs. heavier than the 8' 2" so it couldn't hurt.
