    No no no, it's for hauling your sidewalk crews, all 35 to 40 of them.

    Wonder if it is 4x4???? Looks like it would be a blast to plow with,lol. That def. would be a good way to haul a big sidewalk crew

    It really needs to be a short bus though. That would just make more sense on so many levels.

    That bus remember me of 88B it was worse. diesel is Ford 7.3l it so loud plus it limit 50 mph on highway. It is 1988 and use until 2003 due inspector say not safe. miles was close to 500,000 miles. It was 50 miles every day. Every time during snow you could feel bounce when try drive though 5" of snow. I miss that but wish they keep maintain on it like paint or clean stuff like rust but too late.

    That bus with snowplow not be good idea why it got mpg around 8. But it good idea for pick up students plus they could clear street fast.

    I think this one would plow better, smaller turning radius

    Here In Delton, MI the school has 2 of these. they chopped the frames and bodies and made a flatbed out of one and put a spreader on the other. on the one with the spreader they painted "the sandman" where it used to say school bus. they can push some serious snow and both have 11' blades on them.

    Now if all schools had those, they could all plow their way to school and our kids would be a little smarter with more schooling. hahahaha I just spit all over my monitor!! LMFAO:dizzy::jester::rolleyes:
