    Must have been a Boss plow............ :drinkup:

    I can't believe what some people will try. And why try to pull it through the bank instead of out the way he went in.

    It's R&L... I wouldn't have high hopes dealing with any large trucking company.

    A little duct tape, and it will be as good as new...

    Uh..... why not pull it backwards by the trailer ? Doesn't anyone watch Highway through hell ?:confused:

    I never thought that I could use my plow to fight fires..


    Cool......Thumbs Up

    I think I'd have pulled from the rear of the trailer with the rear of the pickup using the hitch.

    I watched the fire video as well, I wonder how much better it would have worked if they made a pass down the drivers side of the car at say 15mph so the snow would be windowed up onto the hood/fire instead of trying to bury it inside of a pile causing harder access for the fire department which was on its way.

    Why didn't he plow in front of the semi first and maybe put a little salt under the tires.

    I guess this guy didn't read his owners manual. Fisher says right in the manual not to do that.

    Looks like it was a company pick up with the same markings as on the semi's trailer. Employee driving it could probably care less.

    One of my accounts is in a huge industrial park. Never fails, about every 4-5 storms, on my way out I come across a Fed Ex truck trying to leave and pull out onto 291 Hwy and they stop for the light, but then can't get moving again. It's the double trailer rigs and almost always Fed Ex. They clog up the whole entrance exit in and out of the park, so can't count how many times I've driven around the other 10 semis waiting and just nudged Fed Ex on their way with my plow, but I push, I don't pull. Then I leave to the symphony of semi horns. Its my boy scout, good deed for the day, act.

    R+L is a large carrier which makes me wonder why they didn't call for a wrecker. I'm betting the damage to the plow is probably close to what it would have cost for a tow truck
