    This is one of the best plowing videos I've ever seen, very cool look back into time.

    Bet they would have killed for a snow blower.

    Hey, they still do it the same way today, just look at the DOT thread. Only thing that has changed is automatic transmissions and some people have D8's for personal vechiles

    I'm curious how bad the whip lash would be after that stint. Neat video though.

    I thought we would all enjoy it. That vid 91ak250 found is kinda crazy, driving on that ledge & you see that chunk just miss the pick up, that could crush a pick up.

    That vid brings back one of my sayings........ the MEN back in those days came with a bigger set standard issue than some of the "fine" examples we have today.


    Back in those days the women and children were tougher than some of today's "men".

    Nice historical find.

    You've got that absolutely right Mr! Most of todays "men" are an embarrassment. Skinny jeans, highlighted hair, crying?? Cmon really? So glad I'm not part of that generation.

    The trucks shown in that video are the legendary Walter Snow Fighter -a truck built from the ground up to plow snow with a unique drive train that enabled it to maintain traction with only one wheel on the ground.There are still some around plowing snow-they don't build them that way any more.Walter stopped building I believe in the late 1980's early 90's.They were built in New York State.
