    Here's a video I made today mostly after a small 8"-12" storm we had 2-3 days ago.

    It's 15 minutes long but for those waiting/hoping for some snow; you will see plenty of pushing, stacking and windthrowing. I'm opening a part of my Maple Farm road.

    Next Monday, there's a 12" + storm coming!

    See you soon! tymusic

    I'm jealous, we haven't had that kind of snow in years. Does your truck have a miss or is it just the video?

    Didn't notice. At what timing did you hear that in the video?

    Thanks.

    Well, I like to give something back but I don't feel like I can give advices most of the time because I don't do any commercial/residential account beside the usual neighborly help. I mostly do my own land which is probably equivalent to 75-100 residential driveways. For now I can only contribute videos!

    The whole run (roads, parkings and all) takes between 90 minutes and 4 hours depending on how much snow we got. It is faster than with my old plow and I really like that extra time and reliability so far.

    I'll be watching that one again in the summer when I wish I was plowing. I'm gonna listen to music next time though. I cringed every time I heard you shifting and still saw your truck moving! LOL

    Video was pretty cool. Just about broke my neck towards the end when the camera tilted, but it's all good.

    The Allison will not engage from D to R or vice-versa before it's safe. (I tried it at 30 mph just to see!) It's really not that big of a deal with a fluid coupling. That particular tranny is a Stage 4 race tranny from my drag racing days. I'm really not worried about it!

    On the bright side; it's easier on the brakes tymusic

    Sorry for your teeth :)

    so advise if you plowing your sugar roads be careful to watch or remove your rubber tips on your guide sticks low branches love to slap them off . I have a few accounts i remove them because of low branches and brush's over hanging the roads :D

    It must have been the video. Did you open up the exhaust on it? Almost sounds like a gasser with an exhaust leak when you get on the gas, or fuel in your case:D I'm still jealous

    I had a Flowmaster muffler on it but I kept bending and breaking it specifically while backing up when plowing in my 'extreme' conditions. I finally gave up removed it this summer. It's straight piped now. Not that noisy on a turbo diesel but a lot more brutal than it looks on the video.
