    At least you saw the humour in that. I could never go back to a straight blade after owning a V, they are just so much more productive. Nice Vids.

    What did you do to your turbo to make it sound like that?? I'm talking about the first vid at the end after you take your foot off the throttle... I like it.. :salute:

    More impressive when you don't have to hit the pile at 25 MPH to get the snow rolling in front of you. :D ;)

    Lol, yeah i had to blast into that one, I saw my buddie taking the video laughing his ass off after I hit it the first time, so that was for show :jester:

    A better vid would have been actually making that pile before I moved it to the mountain. All of that snow on that side of the lot has to go where I pushed it. It's actually quite a feat, especially with a truck.

    I hope you don't plow at that speed all of the time. But I do like the vids.

    Turbo bark? I figured that was your wastegate opening letting off excess pressure and unused air. Thats a perfectly normal sound of a wastegate.

    The thing I miss the most about my V blade was the stacking. Beautiful sight to see. That snow looked like it was perfect. Wet enough to stack well but dry enough that you can actually push it.

    No that is the pressurized air thats between the turbo and the intake manifold being forced backwards through the turbo which stalls the compressor wheel and makes that barking sound. Its going backwards because the throttle was let off abruptly while under a fair load.

    That was a good one. LOL

    GotH20 your goal for this winter is to take video's longer then 15 seconds. Your vids are good but way too short. I do love the white GMC's.

    That was a good one, and I agree. He told me he was too slow to think of those witty comebacks. :laughing:

    I hear ya. Yeah that was me fumbling in the truck trying to hold a camera, operate the controller, steer, and throw it in reverse all in those 15 seconds! Man, I am good!!! :laughing:
