    Thats a sweet vid. You got to love that wind packed snow, and your showing what a V plow is for.

    Looks like that tracked skid loader plows great! How do you like plowing with tracks? I have heard you shouldn't plow with tracks, I'm not sure why, but that thing is a tank in the snow!

    Yes the track skid is a tank! We switched from the square pad tracks to a bar track and now it is unstopable. I love the boss v. Been running them for years and would never switch. Im always a little nevious plowing in the v position though. You know what happens when you hit something in v! Ouch!

    Great videos, well done. The skid pushed awesome. One thing I didn't like about the tracked skid was how much snow the tracks pulled back out of the pile. That would drive me crazy.

    Yeah the tracks do pull a lot out of the pile. I just go up to the pile on my last pass or two and leve the pusher on the ground and dont drive into the pile.

    Nice video, just surprised by the small amount of snow that stopped the truck. Do you not have any weight in the back?

    I knew someone was going to comment on that lol. It had melted some on a nice day and refroze so it was glare ice underneath. Yes i have 1000 pounds of tractor weights right on top of the rear axle.

    I could see that you were fish-tailing, just surprised that you weren't able to make it through.

    I know what you mean. I'm not afraid to get after it if I have some deep snow to plow and give her some Rs but when it comes to the first pass in the V position I am always very careful. I mean yeah...had it been your normal joe blow dont give a crap guy I could have easily gotten through that drift in one pass but on the other hand I will just take it easy and back up once to make the first pass. Of course now with that said you will have guys say that its more ware on your tranny cause you shifted from forward to reverse one more extra time out of the thousands of times that happens in a night! lol They don't trip real well in that position and I've seen a lot of damaged plows from that over the years.
