    Heres a couple pics from after our first push. Its from one of the two propertys I do myself, its one of our best paying and most important. The wind that morning was nasty, blew snow back over curbs very quickly, but still came out pretty decent. This is before our salt truck got there too...

    Looks Good. What wheels do you have and how are they holding up to the winter weather?

    Scrape looks good. Doesn't look like there was much accumulation.

    The little pile seems to be next to island in the parking lot....instead of on the island.

    Thanks fellas.


    The rims are a set of ProComps that I had powdercoated (with 3 coats) of black, they're gonna hold up just fine. The tires are Kumho KL71 MT's, the first 15k i LOVED these tires, traction was awesome. BUT, ive got about 28k on them now and they're pretty much done, worn out.

    I believe the parking lot is roughly 3.5 acres total. Its a zero tolerance account, if we cant burn the snow off with salt then we push it. So anywhere from an inch to 3 inches or so i can get done in under 2 hours. 4-6 inches and its more like 3-4 hours, At this lot the V works AMAZING. I'd never go back to a straight plow

    TCLA, after i took the pics, i went back and tucked up the islands, theres 4 of them right in a row like that to tuck in.

    get a set of wings for that plow, you'd be surprised how much those few inches help, especially in preventing flow over.

    Ross, you have one very, VERY sharp looking Ford. I wish I had one that was that nice.

    deer,
    I thought about wings for a while but never followed up with it, i guess i just havent thought i've needed them yet.

    Drew,
    Honestly, its never really bothered me. I've plowed with manual trucks for about 6 years now, dont think i ever wanna go back to an auto, I used one of our autos 2 or 3 times last year and im just so much faster with a stick. Im coming up to the pile/curb and then backing up without really ever pausing. Obviously you gotta have a hand controller for the plow, but i love plowing with a stick.
