    We have had 10 inches of snow already in the month of December. We have been very busy so far. Here are a couple pictures of my rig. Got it lettered and the rims done back in October.

    Its a former city truck. Its an 8ft western unmount with a back drag. About 600' of back dragging just in that back lot alone.

    I like the color to stand out from the rest. So you had to back drag most of the lot? It looks real clean!

    Thanks! . It has to be backed dragged all the way down the building. Semis parked in front of loading docks and they are always there otherwise I would just push it all south.

    A truck is more than capable to plow this lot.

    Yeah, you might not have planned for em and may have hoped for something different but at 2am most of em end up being wet and heavy.

    But wet and heavy can still be fun to push!

    Now about that snow......

    How much of that lot is backdragged? I'm with the others when I say damn that's surprising and damn that's clean. Good work!

    It's close to 600' total along the side of the building where the semis park, that has to be back dragged when the are parked. Most of the time they are scattered all over and can be a pain when they come and go all night. I plowed it yesterday and for the first time I didn't have to back drag the entire back lot.

    Yeah, wow. Thats a good job for sure, agreed with the previous post of wings though. I put a set of wings on my 9' unimount before this season. Because I had gotten a huge lot, and the wings are a life saver. Still took two trucks two hours, but I can imagine it woulda taken alot longer without the wings. They were great, because they make the plow hold the snow a little better on a straight push
