    No real snow here in St.Catharines, Ontario yet, just spreading salt so far. Niagara Falls, Ontario has had a few inches, it only 13 miles or so from where I am. I can wait myself, I'm in no hurry...

    Me too.

    I live in Irondequoit. I have a few accounts north of 104 that had three inches and that was about it. Getting to break in the new plow was fun though!!:D

    With all that snow did you take a full bite with your plow or did you have to open up the parking lot first!:D Nothing better then a small amount to get your snow legs.

    Hey grandview

    If you were referring to me with the snow legs thing, I have been plowing for a few years. Just bought a new truck last year and the new Sno-Way this year. Got my snow legs years ago!!:eek:

    That's to keep the truck from over heating.:dizzy:

    Appears to be a Hiniker scoop plow with the center skin removed. I would agree it won't move much snow this way but certainly will keep the truck cooler for transport. I can't understand if it is snowing why it would be removed though.

    i think snow legs is when you start plowing for the first time each winter. it takes alittle to remember everything about plowing. it takes time to get up to speed on operation the plow and shifting at the right time.

    Thank you for clearing that up,honestly.:D I guess I had just never heard the term before. I never thought it to be the same as sea legs.Yes it was definately better to do that on 3" and not an 18" blizzard!!

    Be nice to see some of that here in SE Pa. It was up to 55 degrees today and going to be in the mid 40's to mid 50's for the next several days.
