    They do move a lot of snow, but it sure seems like it would have been more efficient to just windrow it all over....

    Do you guys still run the 810? Interested in selling it?

    Nice video, definitely movin a lot of snow. I think you could've finished it in half the time if you ran the trucks side by side the entire time, holy h*ll that was a lot of snow moved on that one push!

    Great video! I like seeing the trucks work together. You should really get the snow deflectors, they work well.

    many this is a dumb question but why was your dad plowing perpendicular to your brother? why not have them both start at opposite sides and meet in the middle? also I lovee the way you have those trucks setup and those BOSS V's!
     
  11. I was thining the exact same thing.

    i want the deflectors badly, but you always think about them when you got snow coming up over the truck and then ive got a million other things on my mind the rest of the time lol.

    we almost always plow this strictly the way my brother was doing it, but when theres 4"+ the snow will start to spill off the drivers side at the end of the run b/c the windrow gets so big on the pass. side. my dad was taking some bulk out of the snow there so it can flow out nicely and then my brother wont have to chase mohawks after hes done. and I think they may have been showing off a lil as well.

    i think it was in full scoop, but when you get to the pile you need to pull them back b/c the added weight of the wings+extra snow your carrying makes the plow trip forward as you go to lift it, so pulling them in lets you raise the plow without it tipping forward.

    and this was originally shot in 1080HD too bad youtube scales it down, photobucket wouldnt even accept the upload.

    ya we still have the 810, Jerre gave it a complete overhaul this fall. its on our dump truck that an employee is driving. he usually takes the truck home but ill try and get more vids of the rest of the equip.

    Yeah, I want to see the ASV in action! You're lucky to have your family working with you. I used to and I miss it. Even though you don't always get along it's good to know they are there.
