    and i was thrilled to be able to take the plow off my truck today. doesnt look like any real snow in the forcast for at least a week. i brought the truck to the car wash. it is a much happier truck now.:D

    anyone else here every feel guilty for beating on their truck by plowing with it? Guess it could just be that i kinda do because it is also my daily driver.
    seen a guy drop a driveshaft the other day. knock on wood. not me yet.

    it's a truck, it was made for be worked. yes i agree it's a happier truck now that it's washed.i do the same with my trucks. my main plow truck is a 91 dodge 3/4 ton with a cummins diesel engine . it's got my western salt spreader mounted on it also. every time i'm done plowing and salting i have a rented over size 2 car garage with floor drains, running water, heated and insulated. every event the truck gets washed and salter gets sprayed out"if used" and truck gets backed in and tucked away awaiting the next snow. i keep the heat set at 55 so the truck can drip and all the slush and ice underneath can melt and go down the drain, while at the same time when it's time to plow, i get to jump into a truck that's half warm already. it's hard to check the plow oil when there's 6" of snow all over everything!!ha-ha i just thought i'd share that with you guys. i may start a thread on the topic, garages and such. later, pete

    i dont really feel guilty about beating on it with plowing and all, afterall it is putting some payup in my pocket! on the other hand when i break something or have a problem im always thinking - "I knew this was gonna happen! Damn plow!"

    ive also decided that im not going to wash my truck for a few days until i catch up on sleep. whenever i wash my truck the sweet money from the sky falls right after and it gets messed up. so i want to sleep a little and get some other work done before i do that :)

    Exactly...I feel bad! But when the money comes in everything is better, unless you broke ALOT of stuff and didn't make anything! Knock on wood...that hasn't happen yet

    I have already broken stuff. and paid from money made to fix it. I subbed out for 5 hrs this last storm and made enough to buy my plow ings and the vibrator for my salter. So now just need to get them in and installed before the next event lol.:bluebounc:drinkup:
