    you can tell how wet that was by the way it snowballed up, uhg. what was your road speed? I was surprised not to see flyover, even though it looked as if you were doing 15-20 and I don't see a flap on the moldboard.

    nothing like a mile long PAVED private drivewaypayup, your good, I would have had a couple of stakes on the opposite side of the woods and a few up by the ranch.

    I would guess 15-20mph. There is the remnants of a windrow on the right side along the field, so I know where I am. It was marked out, but those markers have been covered in snow and plowed into the windrow.

    That's a pretty typical snowfall here. Add to that trying to push up and down hills and the trucks really do get a workout.

    Agreed.Whether it was the type that supposedly doesn't last or the type that does supposedly last---now that would be interesting to see.

    You guys are killing me. :dizzy:


    Fun times for sure Mike. I'm really impressed with the road conditions this time. Usually the lots look so much better than the roads, but yesterday and today they seemed about the same. Kudos to City of Peoria, Peoria County and IDOT...

    I'm going to make this thread a catch-all for my plowing pics and vids for the rest of the year.

    Nope, sure don't. :D Thanks, they're a ton better than the sealed beam Western or Blizzard lights that were on there.

    Wow, I really hate how the Blizzard Power Hitch light frame doesn't come off with the plow and has to stay on the truck. It's so hard to remove and makes the truck look so ugly.

    :rolleyes:
