    It only took until January 27-28, 2009 to get pushable snow in the lower Susquehanna valley of PA. It's called the "wintery mix" belt these days. Anyway, here are some pics of me loading up, clearing a couple of my accounts and after the storm had passed, enjoy!

    Nice pics- Have you re-furbished the plow or is it original? Looks mint for a MM1.

    Hey, thanks for all the positive responses. We ended up with about 3" that got pushed down to 2" by some sleet and rain towards the end of the storm. Then it iced up nice in the evening for that extra round of ice control.

    Those lights on the spreader? $16.00 at Napa, including the switch, relay and wiring! And the strobe was a throw away that I got from a buddy... And the MM1 is original, I picked it up used for $1900.00 with a new cutting edge. All I did was put on the edge and change the fluid (this summer it gets torn down, blasted and repainted). Which reminds me, I've got frame mounts for a late 90's Dodge and a complete wiring harness if anyone is interested...

    The big block wall is the remains of an old warehouse where I store my salt.

    Adam, I'm out of Dover. Are your trucks lettered? I think I've seen a black p/u with "Adam's" on the door, is that you? It's late notice but are you going to the auction at Ferrell's today? Check out auctionzip.com to see what they've got, it's gonna be a fire sale...

    No, my parents went up, i had to go down to Douglas to get my plow lights fixed. I've been seeing alot of those poly salt dogg spreaders around here this year. I think I'm going with the stainless. They had a bunch of stuff at the auction, i'm still curious as to why they went out. I know there quality was somewhat poor. We have an F-350 that's green with an aluminum truck craft bed on it. The logo and truck are pretty unique. What are some of the bigger properties you guys do?

    it's a 2 yard. It was pricey but so far it has been worth every penny! I'll never buy steel or gas powered again!

    It's a '95 with only 87,000 miles on the 7.3 Direct Injected diesel, it's a Powerstroke but is not badged that way under the hood. It's in decent shape... all the rust is on the bottom half! Thanks for looking!
