    Yeah it usually happens once a year either to me or one of my drivers on this lot you would think after plowing this lot for four years i would learn to slow (try) down.

    That reminds me of one of mine from many, many years ago (1982? I think). I was 16 and house sitting for my grandparents (and runnign things on the farm - sort of) while they were in Florida for a month. I was using my grandfathers 1978 Chevy K-10 with a 7 1/2 Fisher Plow. We plowed the 3/4 mile dirt drive with the shoes on so we wouldn't dig up the dirt so we ended up with a nice icy driveway with high snow banks on each side and a 90 degree left hand turn 3/4 of the way in. It was New Years Day and my mom had just had an accident totalling her car that morning. I was on my way back to the farm in the plow truck and skidded right at the left hand turn and put the truck right off of a 4 foot high loading dock that was located on that turn for loading/unloading equipment onto/from high deck flat trailers. The only thing that kept the truck from rolling was the blade. You could stand up under the rear bumper on the driver's side and the right rear tire was on the ground. It took a Case 4wd tractor to pull that one out.

    "bout a month ago i came down here to work on a '63 impala ss convertible that another guy screwed up. Was supposed to just be 2 wks but hit a major disaster with this thing. In the time i've been here...i'v aquired 8 more classics or streetrods to do. Am currently doin' a '30 Ford coupe frame off and roddin' it out. will post pics in another thread. But to answer your question...i am thinking seriously of making this my permanent residence. Love the sunshine and beaches.

    I have seen a few, fortunatly not done them

    a 2 year old dodge 3/4 ton backed over a well head at about 25mph hooked the transfer case exploded the trany, sheared the motor mounts pushing it into the radiator insurance totaled the truck, nocked the driver unconsious because he had his head sitcking out the window looking back, I had to crowl under the truck and cover the well with plastic because it was leaking trayn fluid down it

    a friend was plowing with his 14G grader and missed the side of the driveway highcentering the front 8 ft of the grader, fortunatly he had a 966 handy to help get it out
