    same thing happened to me on new years storm. i wasnt forced off but the customer kept saying plow out a little further, plow out alittle further. so i did and eventually fell off the parking area. luckily for me i was at the top of a hairpin drive so i was able to just drive through the 3 feet of snow down to the other end of the drive.:cry:

    well its a driveway to a fish and game club and there is only a few spots to pull off, I had no where to pull off and the other guy blew by his turn off spot so we had to go two wide on a one lane road.

    The truck is a 1985 GMC K3500. I got it about a year ago with a bad engine so I put a 350 out of a 79 in it. It a 4spd with a plow and dumping flatbed. It nice to haul mulch and also has a leaf box.

    I also have a 1987 mason dump, we are in the process of restoring them both, we have 2 cabs and all the fenders, doors, ect. I can put more pictures up if you guys want to see them.

    It took 3 hours to pull up, first we tried 2 trucks pulling it sideways and it didnt work, so we cut down some trees and pulled it forward then sideways out. It was 10 degrees out which didnt help.

    that sucks. if it were me i would have stood my bigger ground. then let him eat my fisher plow. but most people can tell i am around at night as i have this all lit up. it looks like a airport zone with the amount of light coming off it. i will have to get night time pics.

    Yah, no one would be pushing me off a road. This year the same thing happened to me except I was in a F-750 dump truck on a one way street. Some A-hole tried to get me to back up while pulling a 12,000lb chipper. I had one of my guys jump out and tell him to move the f- back. They guy kept on argueing and I called the cops......he got a ticket. Some ppl are pretty stupid.
