    My favorites are the sound of the blade slapping the ground when I drop it and my truck exhaust. :mechanic:

    The sound of no traffic around me.

    I think of how much I charge them when the blade drops, with every swift pass!:nod:

    The gentle cackle of my 7.3 as I take a piss in a world that is otherwise silent and sleeping

    I like the sound of my salt spreader makes as it runs the stuff hitting the back deflector No sound means plug up
    I like sound of the trip edge makes and the smell of the edge wearing

    What no one has said the sound of injector pump on a Big Block 855 Cummins? Especially one on say a Walter FCBS (ACUS , ACRS, NCBS OR NCUS) trucks or perhaps an Oshkosh P2427 or FWD RB44 model?

    The sound of how quiet it is during a storm because of the snow absorbing the sounds

    When it is absolutely silent.. all but the the faint sound of a back up beeper and engine hum of a loader in the distance.

    The tires crunching on the snow breaking the silence.

    The sound of acceleration when driving away from another completed job. It gets better as I complete the last one and start over again.

    I love the sound of a cheap car alarm going off when I drop my plow near by, it's also rather interesting to see how strong the cars battery is after it happens several times.
