    ... yup I said 980! I figured I'd make my first post on plowsite a good one. It's 30' wide and weighs 9011lbs! :dizzy: They use these for clearing runways at the Toronto Airport.

    Going to be getting some video and pics of these things working this month. I guess they use it more like a squeegee moving slush off the strips. Being a busy airport they never slow down enough to let them get really covered in snow.

    ... I've got some video of a CAT 14M Motor Grader clearing previously unplowed logging roads at work. I'll try to get that up tomorrow. I'm going out in April to watch/video that same machine opening roads that have been closed all winter with a vee plow... should be fun after the record-breaking snow we've gotten this year!

    Cheers,
