    A 1954 Chevy 6 wheel dump truck with a manual angle plow. It had zero traction. I used to put a load of wood in the body and sometimes I would have to lift up the body to get more traction for the rear wheels to keep from getting stuck.

    97 2wd f150 with a 7ft snowbear. That little sucker plowed its heart out. Got tired of getting stuck, then mounted the plow on a 79 CJ7 with a lift kit and 35 boggers. The jeep in my pic above.
    Both are now gone, and will be missed!:salute:

    I started out with my 2004 Arctic Cat 500 4x4 ATV with a 60" plow when I was 13. Then when I was 15, I bought my first plow truck, it was a 1989 Chevy 2500 3/4 ton 4x4 with an 8' Fisher Speed Cast.

    I started in 1986 with an old 1968 Chevy 2500. It had a manual angle western plow on it and ran off the power steering pump. 4 speed granny low, 4X4. I miss my old truck, but if I still had it it would have a newer Boss V on it, lol.
