    The long awaited video. I know the quality sucks, so am still working on it. You guys have been bugging me for so long to see it, so here goes. Trust me a better version will come soon. Just wanted to show you how well it works.

    Looks like someone was too lazy to get his butt out of the truck for closeups.

    Nice start though Paul. Someday I'm going to set one up like that and start on resi's again. I'll give you a call when I do.

    Why does You Tube keep telling me the video is no longer available when I go there? What am I doing wrong?

    That's impressive as always. For someone who has such a massive operation you sure have a crappy camera :jester:

    Any reason why you don't have strobes or something similar?

    they are neat.
    the house across the street from me has someone blow his drive with a john deere about the size as the one in the vid.
    i cant plow it its stones and might rip it up so i guess i dont ever get that drive.:rolleyes:

    in a trucks defense i still thinking plowing is quicker but doesnt do as good a job because the blower doesnt run out of room as easy has you do plowing.

    How does it blow going forward, I always thought you had to be reversing?

    That's a pull-type blower. Don't worry, until I started coming on here I had never seen one before either :p

    Please do, I would love to return the favor.
    Thanks
    They drive the resi clients crazy, so we don't use them.
    As you can see it was day time, usually takes a little longer because of traffic and people are watching where you are blowing your snow. But the video was in real time, and I think he did 5 drives in 5 minutes, not truck will ever do that. I am not putting down trucks, I'm just saying if your drives are close together, there is no better machine.
    You bet, but we may need it to snow first. I got my Internet guy looking at it tonight. Could have something interesting by tomorrow.:drinkup:

    Just might use it as a training vid xysport
    Jay , like Paul said "5 in 5 mins", :gunsfiring: get a tractor and go hard in a small area and charge more for a premium individualized service and kick techni butt, but what do I know :p Get yr truck back ?
