    :realmad: So we used the cherry picker to get the plow out of the bed of the truck tonight. We tried to swing the plow sideways to let it down and the cherry picker tipped over ARRRRRG!

    Bent the angle iron frame that the light mounts to and snapped off one of the lights.(it was cracked when I bought it. :cry:

    Now I definitely need to order new lights!

    I take the moron of the day award!

    Lesson learned - best experience.
    Glad none of you got hurt - THAT would have been bad.

    true on all accounts.

    Guess we should have lowered the plow to the grounfd before we tried to swing it.

    I hate stupidity. Especially when I'm at the heart of it.


    Of course now I'm going to grind off the top angle iron that holds the plow lights and I'm going to fab my own for my new intensifier lights :)

    Think of it this way, it just gave you the excuse to buy the new lights, that you know you wanted anyway.
