    Up here in Dunbar we had 16" of lighter, fairly dry snow. Blowing like mad though during the storm. I was the fill in driver in the loader for 7 hours, that was enough. I gained a sore back out of the deal. Had to fix a steering box seal on my own plow truck.

    I don't know exactly how much we had. But we had a lot, and I was out for 29 hours. It was wet and heavy. Probably the worst storm I ever plowed in. The Ford's held up great though. We only broke 1 snowblower.

    I definitely would not doubt it. It was a pretty intense storm. How did it go by you?

    Sierra 1/2 ton

    Yep, 99 Sierra 1/2 ton.

    I like it a lot since I do some tight parking lots and it's a nice short truck. I've had some problems but no more than most other plow trucks.

    Gotta take it easy though since it's only a 1/2 ton. I plowed through the storm and never had to push more than 5-6" at one time.

    It actually went pretty well considering we had 12" of lead snow. A few break downs, but we still got the lots covered. It helped that quite a few of our accounts are close to the lake, where the snow switched to rain ~ 5-6 AM.
