    Hey guys. Did a search for "Indiana" and came across this. Glad to see some locals. Quick question. I need a solenoid for my Meyer E47 pump. Where is a good place to get snow plow parts in the Indianapolis area? Thank you

    Tebco on shelby st. on the near southside has a lot of aftermarket meyer parts, also if you go to meyers website and search dealers you can find the closest one, I know there is also a dealer on bluff rd north of troy just can't remember the name

    I always use Plainfield Power Equipment. They have always been very helpful and have lots of parts in stock.

    Just needs to hold off a couple more weeks. New Tires and Ball Joints next week. Did get a fresh coat of paint on the Plow last week though.

    I'd guess were looking at another 2-3 weeks before we start to see any snow, who the hell really knows tho, any forcast past about 3 days out is pretty much worthless

    In Indiana yes. But they all do agree that it will snow this season

    Agreed! I like this guys website, he's partial to the northern plains region, but he always has an early heads up on upcoming snow storms across the US http://snowday.community.officelive.com/default.aspx. Pretty good long range winter outlook too, he thinks we will have 10+ inches above average snowfall this winter

    I have also seen where some are predicting at least two storms of 10+ inches. That would be a welcome change from the usual 3-5 in storms.

    Wondering why you would want 10+ inch storms. It's hard on equipment and takes way to long to plow.

    Once a year or so can be fun, for some guys it can mean more money as well, now if your on the sidewalk crew, then you hate it

    Yeah it is hard on equipment but it would make it easier for the company I plow for so we could have all 4 trucks plowing instead of just two. We would profit a lot better from at least one large storm then a lot of little ones.

    My grandpa says the almanac is saying a big storm mid December with a bunch of snow. I am pumped to use my new skid steer and pro tech pusher. Do you guys run a blade along with your pusher? This is my only snow removal equipment so I want to be as efficient as possible. I wanted to buy a 9' Kage system but wasn't in the budget this year. I'm thinking I may convert one of my old western plows so I can use it one the skid. I'm just not sure if that would work right.

    I know of a few people that run old truck plows on skid steers and they seem to do just fine. We run 10' push boxes on our two Kubota tractors for some of our larger lots.
