I think you got what you deserved Nate. No one should plow any lot at 25 mph. Slow down, and these things wont happen.
who threw a hissy fit? it sure wasnt me. I pointed out what he is.Originally posted by BRL
Nobody that I can remember reacted in the way that you did. We all make mistakes & most of us here are mature & professional enough to accept it & to accept that posting our mistakes in a public forum will result in others' letting us know about it. No big deal. I've hit plenty of things in the snow from not plowing correctly, plowing too fast, or other mistakes I've made. I certainly wouldn't throw a hissy fit because someone here pointed out that my mistake created a problem for me, or could have caused a worse problem than the one that may have happened. You posted in a public forum that you were using a piece of equipment in a manner that most of the manufacturers of said equipment say not to in their service or equipment manuals. (In your case, you have posted in your signature that you are using a Meyer plow, the Meyer manual states "maximimum plow speed is 20 MPH, IF conditions are ideal and IF operator is familiar with the area to be cleared") Take your lumps like a man and face the facts, because a hissy fit like that one may actually have many members here putting you on their Ignore lists LOL. I've hit things going faster than I should have, and in lots that I wasn't familiar with, and I certainly expect my peers here to tell me I meesed up when I announce it. Happy plowing.
