    This is from last night. Yes, I'm plowing through 3ft plus of snow. The clearance marker on the plow stands over 4 1/2 ft. above the ground with the plow down all the way. (I get tired of videos of 2 inches of snow, which I don't bother to plow. But, if I did, I could plow it with a pushbroom mounted on a VW bug!)

    Had to stop filming and use two hands. I stopped plowing and filmed a huge drift lying lengthwise down the road, before attempting to plow through it.

    I have gotten stuck doing that and had the snow drifting in behind me almost faster than I could shovel, and I was shoveling for my life!

    I'll take that as a positive comment, you did not throw up on your keyboard! :dizzy:

    I didn't notice at the time, but when I watched the video I noticed them singing "wild wind blowing" during the drifting action, and 'life in his hand" while I'm worrying that I need two hands to keep from getting in big trouble. Thought that was cool, but I don't choose the song, it's on shuffle.

    On another vid I posted here (http://www.plowsite.com/showthread.php?t=119433), another Nick said he'd shoot himself if he had to listen to that music. Hey, I have an eclectic mix, something for most, different style every song. Others really liked the music. The night in question I noticed that Mozart grated on my nerves, had to hit skip on him twice.

    Yeah, went right through no trouble, and with lots of good adrenaline rush. I did need both hands. After seeing the video and comparing the snow to the height of my plow edge as it cut, I was underestimating the depth. That's good, I don't like all the over-estimates I see on you tube, like 2ft when you can see it's about 6 inches.

    I like to see videos where the equipment is showing what it can do. My wife can sweep 2 inches of fluff with a broom.


    Thank you for watching and commenting. I really enjoy watching equipment proving itself, and I guess I really enjoy watching snow getting moved.

    We understand - you think 2" is nothing. A real man only plows 3' :rolleyes:

    I'd pick up my gun and shoot myself 1st. Needs some ACDC, Stones, Prodigy, Chemical Brothers and Groove Armada to name a few.
