    Ouch!! I dont have pics, but we may have ripped up an underground sprinkler. Just have to wait for the snow to melt to check the sprinklers. Has anybody else damaged an underground sprinkler?

    Damn you beat me to it. Hard to find good help. ;) Hard to break anything when we only plowed 2.5 times.:mad:

    Don't have pics of most of the stuff.

    Last push of the night, and the truck died when I went to lift the blade out of the snow. I have an under hood pump. When I went to start it back up the starter was dead. Towed it 4 blocks to the dealer and had a new starter installed. She's never started so fast in her life.

    Then I dropped the front wheel off the edge of some pavement. I hooked up with a strap and tugged it back and when I went to move the hub disconnected from the spindle. Previous owner did a brake job and they didn't put it back together properly...
    That was the storm that I bought my ATV to use while the truck was in the shop.

    Also have to either realign or replace the hinges on my drivers door since they were bent when I dragged a guy on the door.

    Had the tailgate cables rust through and snap the other day also, along with the drivers handle on the inside of the door snap off.

    Dont have any pics but one driver slid into the same tree on tree different storms,and backed in to a car. The owner backed into a car ,and I backed into a car not even plowing trying to park and backed into a light pole with our JD 310 after 38 hours of plowing and moving snow

    Yea, there's a bolt missing and I think they are just knocked out of alignment. Unfortunately I needed to plow with the truck that night so I was forced to bend the sheet metal on the outside of the door so I could get in and out.

    A few weeks ago I noticed I put 2 nice little dime sized dents in the moldboard of my meyer, Not sure what did it but like you said we just had alot of snow I think it was curbs.

    The new Boss lights don't have bushings underneath like the old style lights did. Flaw in my opinion, I have allready cracked the new ones they put on too.

    Anyways hit a pothole the blade flopped down and when it came back up they snapped right off. Hell of a light show in the middle of the night. Sparks must have went 12' in the air.

    I had a driver smack a house on the last storm,almost $5,000 in damages to the truck. It was a brick house so the only thing that happened was the downspout was crushed. We fixed that with one that was laying around my employees shop.

    same thing happened to me. i have the older style lights with the turn signals on the light bar. hit a separation where the concrete and asphalt meet, that wasnt more then 1/2in last year, that is now about 2in and blade tripped real hard, threw my truck in the air and lights went flying. was able to duct tape em for the night but new ones got put on the next day. that was not fun, scared the hell outta me thats for sure
