    During the very long storm yesterday, I spent the whole day tracking down snow removal equipment in action, from morning to night, the day was the best one out of the whole winter so far.

    THANK YOU! It's 50 and raining here. One question tho, you run chains on the front loader tires? I just figured the loader had enough weight and didnt need them. Sorry if that is a dumb question. Thanks again for the awesome pics!

    I guess its for extra grip and safety. Thanks.

    Its a V-Plow that you can angle to put in many different positions.

    Yeah its not a bad idea as long as they don't chew up the surface. The guys that run pay loaders here make a real mess of their lots because most people don't salt here unless there is freezing rain. The psi on those big loaders isn't good, plus they usually use a bucket, and combined makes the lot a sheet of ice. All they do is spin their tires and the friction of the bucket cutting edge seems to just be enough to make ice.

    Big loaders have their place, but these lots they are doing in our town are too small imo.

    I really could have used one of those yesterday plowing through 3" drifts with my 12" straight blade. Nice pictures.

    You had problems with 3" drifts using a 12" blade?

    Were you running racing slicks for tyres?
