    You know, finally get some snow, so you get out there. First the plow pump quits for a while, luckily it starts workin again. Then develop a loud manifold leak. Then the wipers completely die, and this is all in the same day? Does anybody have a story that makes you feel like I do right about now? Lets not forget that I'm finally in the house for the night and there is no beer left :cry:

    My guess is probably everyone of us here have been there. I know I have. But with the manifold leak,no wipers and whatever else it would have made another beer run regardless.

    I feel ya man. With my old K20, it never failed, everytime it snowed something would break and cost me enough money to replace that i wouldnt make any money.

    Oh yeah....last night i cracked my windshield.:mad:

    I've got a wiper motor thats dying, and a loose power steering belt. Had a frozen pump earlier in the season.

    All in all, I'd say pretty good. Now that I've mentioned it though, I'm sure the somewhat weak feeling clutch is going to suddenly give out with a bang.... :rolleyes:

    Wednesday night I had the check engine light come on on the way to pick up my shoveler, lift cylinder seems to be leaking, backed up into a mailbox on new drive, and got the plow stuck between the blacktop and concrete walkway on a drive I've been doing for years. Hit my head on the visor, woozy for the rest of the night. Still sore; Think it's a minor concussions. Can't wait to look back and laugh.:dizzy:

    I had one of those days my guys broke 2 snowthrowers in 1 day,wipers are just crap,tranny was slipping,4 wd growling.You think thats bad ask Payton what happens when you are plowing a parking lot and they dug a trench and did not mark it so it is covered with snow and it just looks like flat pavement.:dizzy: I will tell you what happens your plow falls in it and you t bone the ditch straight on and it rips the sub frame right off your truck.Ouch
