    Those are some cool vids. Do you load trucks with the loader normally? Just wondering if one of them boxes woulnd't be better for a lot like that.

    must have been wet, heavy and slick underneath. Looked like the loader was struggling a little bit in the first movie.

    Kinda looks like your guys are screwing around with your equipment. A little reckless, don't ya think? Also seems the pickup was making more mess than anything. But hey, I wasn't there :rolleyes:

    Looks like the loader was begging for chains and the truck was begging for wings!

    Ya, it was a bit slick. It was about 31 degrees, so it was sticky slippery snow. That loader in the video is our leased one, so we dont have a larger bucket for it. The other loader has a big snowbucket on it though. As far as the being hard on the equipment, thats not to bad in my book. Yes normally we wouldent try to take on the whole pile like that, but had to do it for the video. The pickups usually do the windrowing and the loaders push the windrows up, but I wanted video in the lot I was working in, so I had him push up a windrow.

    ya, its a good time out there plowing. where all just a bunch of kids when it snows!! Plowing cant be all serious all the time! You gotta have some fun! Acually that was the boss in the loader, lol, hes just one of us kids when it snows! Ya we where lucky we got that 2 inches, and went out and did all of our accounts last night, casue today it rained all day, and there is hardly any snow left. 1-3" of white tommrow though, its a far cry from the 12" we where suppose to get today, but got it in rain instead

    oh, and as far as the strobes reflecting off the front of the plow, we can turn the fronts off and leave the backs on with that system

    It sure does look that way, but he's just having a little fun with what looks like the first storm of the season (if you want to call it that).

    RI and most of MA got screwed over yesterday. NH and ME got something at least. :realmad:

    Haha how you guys ran over the piles backwards full force reminded me of the days when I was running a 928G doing water and sewer in city streets when I was in high school during my summer vacations putting on a show making it bounce and running backwards over piles of pit run and bedding sand for the kids and sometimes a few cute girls if they walked by ;)
