    I finally got around to uploading my video of me plowing 8" of snow with my ATV. It was the first snow of the year for us here in Ohio.

    I am riding a Honda Rubicon with a 6' Moose County Plow.

    We now have almost 3 feet of snow and the banks are 4 to 5 feet high and it is not even FEB/MARCH yet....lol

    The biggest amount of snow I have moved (just a few days ago) was 12". It took 2 hours to plow about a half acre. I also played with the kids by pulling them around on a sled.

    That's the perks of ATV plowing :D

    Nice video. I noticed when you plow, your getting alot of "trash" as I call it dumping off the left side. You also pushed one way. Now I'm not telling you how to do it but I would have started in the middle and pushed it to one side, then turn around and while with the same angle, push the other half. Repeat and it would be done in just a few passes. Maybe you didn't want it near the house, I can understand that. I noticed it doesn't have power angle. I'm thinking it would make it much easier to plow the way you want without having to keep looping around. The kids don't look like they're having as much fun as you. :D

    Yeah, I was trying to keep it away from the front of the building. I wish I had the power angle just for that reason. But, I love doing donuts. I was really being good for the video. Normally I would be hot-doggen' it! :D

    I was plowing in D2. Low is to slow. D1 is to fast.

    I could use the EMS but that is to much work...lol

    big doug when the fun wears out and it will lol, youll learn to plow like a pro take 1/2 of that and push it like you were then, go close to your biz and push the other 1/2, youll know when why when you get alot of snow. and take smaller bites and youll be good to go keep practicin, and ride red buddy

    After plowing 30 times this year, I am still having way to much fun. wesport

    And I woke up to another 11/2 of snow this morning. More videos will come as I show the new split/spin/brake/trip/bump move. It looks like you will flip the bike over yet a ninja like save comes to the fore. xysport

    :D

    I am at a new place now that does have uneven asphalt. I wonder if I will slow down? Not...LOL :drinkup:

    Winter is almost here.

    I also made a reflexology video if someone just wants to kill time.

    Once I get my plow out I will make another video of plowing the 2010 season.
