    Here is a good video of plowing a private road with 6 inches of heavy snow. You will notice that the snow would bunch up in front of the plow, it was a good workout for the truck.

    Looks like the exact same consistency snow we just had Paul. Stuff would not slide off to the side very much. Lots of straight on pushing to get rid of it, then clean up the trails.

    Looks good as always.

    Looks like you did a good job of keeping your speed up and steady.

    We run 2 pickups with plows, for years we never did. I felt to be able to belong to PS I had to own, and use one myself.

    Nice video. Could you have dropped the pass side wing off and made it easier on the equip? I'm not familiar to plowing with wings and if it would make a difference. I want to add them to my 9' and put it on my dump truck

    Sure I could have pulled in the side wings, and in theory I would have less snow to push. The big advantage with the wings out is being able to push the snow further away from my truck, so when turning, or even pushing snow against hard pack windrows it does not drop back behind the plow and then having to drive over that snow. I never worked with a plow without wings, and seeing the advantage of the wings, don't think I ever would.
