    I'm not sure I've seen anyone do loader work with forks before.

    I like that loader.

    We had to break it up, its all froze. It was either the forks or a tooth bucket, and I didn't want to scratch the NEW concrete. So the Forks won out. He would break it up, load th large chuncks, put the bucket on and clean up the loose stuff. Works slick.

    I don't think you need them if you only have one working brake light.

    Yep. We have a broken taillight, load trucks with forks, use little equipment, and generally don't know what we are doing. (the F450 is a sub truck so I could care less if he's got a dot number)

    Guess I should just give it up and leave it to all the experts.

    I'm surprised they wanted it removed looks like a lot of room left there.

    Its a 20 car lot, we took up 6 spaces plus islands. Its the 2nd of January and I think we might have a bit more winter left so piles needed to go.

    Monday we have 2 more to remove. One is questionable, but our temps have been up and down and have froze the piles up. I hate breaking my equipment on frozen piles. So we get permission and move them, the customer understands. The second lot has a way bigger pile. Well 2 piles. We had to split the one to keep it away from a drain. Same customer. They understand.

    damn you'd think just a warm day , or some salt or even a random fire would get rid of those things....

    I don't know about in Iowa but I had piles 15ft high and we did get a few days of warm weather 41ish those piles are about 4ft now and hard as a rock. I was talking to a few customers about hauling when here comes warm weather and melts all of it on me. Atleast I got to salt.

    Do they pay you to remove the snow?
