    you guys got other spots to dump at around town or just hoping for no snow and warm weather for a lil while? lol.. Looks like lots of dump sites around the FM area are getting full. We dont haul much snow, so where were dumping at isnt to bad yet. but theres still plenty of winter left. haha.

    Could you guys build up ramps in the snow for more height and storage like in gravel pits? Or is the snow just too soft to do that with? I'd think a large excavator could also pile the snow alot higher.

    Theres one const. company that I know of around town that uses a dozer to build up the piles in a big ramp, such as gravel pits or landfils etc.

    Where I'm from, they used a full size blower to stack the snow at the snow dump. By the end of winter, it would generally be around 50' high I think. I'll try to get pics next time I'm there.

    Edit: Found this pic of it online, showing the pile and a blower.

    what ever it is is sure is ugly, but with a 6 ft wheel base its turning radius should be pretty small. :)

    Hey, if i had it im sure i would use it for that!!! we have skids, but we use our wheel loaders to driveways instead of them. Just cause we dont haul our skids and the drives are a ways away/

    If its ugly that means it was built when they acually built stuff to last!!!! Ugly is good!!!
