You my friend have found the ultimate "more power" toy. Boy what a man could tear up with that thing. One thing for sure, no one will argue with you coming down the road in that.

The biggest thing I've ever gotten to weld on is a Cat 988. To quote Will Smith (from "Independence Day") after seeing this machine: "I have GOT to get me one of these!"

Now theres a machine that could really "scrape down" a parking lot,and those pesky little semi always pulling in behind you when your trying to plow wouldn't seem to be much of a problem any more.I'd have to morgage my house just to fuel the thing up.

Awww man....

We only got a little snow yesterday - an inch or so.
Enough to salt, not to plow.
Sure hope it's not winding down.
Although the lake is freeing up some, so the lake effect will take over again. Seen this before. We could get slammed in March like we did in December.
350" seems like a good round number.

Average snowfall at the immediate lakeshore - 88"
Average snowfall at the Interstate (2 miles south of the lakeshore and where the lake effect kicks in) - 190"

Currently we are at 112" at the lakeshore, and 230" at the Interstate.

Hmmmm... this would be a great thread.... to see where everyone is at as compared to average.

I know i am over my 288cm average, but i have to pay to have exact summary and i don't need it for now.

This is our biggest winter since few years, city are over budget, ( you can see it trough all street, they remove only the half of the snowbanks for now, some sidewalk the bombardier can't go trougt it, they need one more week to clear all that since the last monday snow storm and the ice event of friday..hope fo no snow until this, and it's gonna be harder because now all freeze and it's hard like a rock)

BTW all the BS "contractor" begin to bankrupt, they were cheap on seasonnal contract and don't have per push income, i get some call to take care of new customers for the rest of the winter on a good per push price and they want a contract for the next year.

Hopefully we did'nt get big storm, 1 more than 12" (a easy one), 3 6-10", and a lot of day snowly days.

usually we ended nearly march 20, and 1 6" in april.

only the pros will survive, good for the bizz

I thought this guy was out of his mind and I was right.I found this same machine in a auction result book that I have that sold at auction for $8000.I found a 1983 Cat 994 on the internet for $885,000.There would be no comparison in performance,comfort,resale,the extra $200,000 would be well worth it.I think this guy is looking for a sucker.
