    It wasnt that bad, most of the time I have no problem trying to back out of the piles even when I bury the front end in snow, The worst one is at American Axel because the lot is so big and there is so much snow that you are pushing that you have to do 35mph to make it to the end, then you must try and lift the plow before you hit the curb, there is absolutely no chance of stopping on that run, you just let the bank stop you, and most of the time I have so much momentum that the truck goes up on the pile and gets stuck momentarily

    Thats the one on East Delevin. We have had the contract since they started subbing it out, but this year we only plow it till like Feb, then just fire lanes. It sucks but at the same time we are happy. Big property, lots of money, but we wont miss being on the east side at 2am, that is a treat no-one would like.

    Sorry, its early and OBS isnt clicking in the head, if you mean the 550 that was in the first and third video then yes, but most of the time plowing Im using the 350 dump, they have me use that because I seem to be able to get the best production out of that truck, most others just have it spinning around in circles trying to push thouse piles. Im not quite sure on the engine, the owner had them rust proofed (they sprey veggie oil on them to prevent rust) and they get caked in greace to where you have to scrub like crazy to find part numbers and crap like that.

    Well yes and no, the actual city isnt getting hit, but south of the city was getting it pretty good.

    Last year I only broke 2 things, the left & right hydro lines for the wings (separate times)....But, the lines were close to 8 years old and neither broke doing that. One was just lifting it to drive and the other hit a hole in a lot. And like we like to say "cant make money if you dont push things" (me, just now.:))

    Yeah, we have Motorola cb radios in the trucks with our own dedicated line, I keep mine on the seat instead of the holder and the noise was the mic had slid off onto the floor and hit the talk button...Im good for at least one of those a night.
