    Got a bit of snow in the mountains the last few days. One of my regulars called me and said he was kinda snowed in so i went for a drive. He has over a mile of drive to plow. Starts at the bottom and climbs 3-7% to his property at the top. About 800' elevation change if i remember correctly. I always have to VEE on the way in or i can't push it up the hill without chaining up and i HATE chaining up!

    Looks like you lucked out, the ground had a chance to freeze for you.The drive appears it could be a real ball buster if it wasn't.

    I wouldn't want anything but a trip edge on it. A full trip plow like a Boss WOULD be a ball buster for sure. There are some pretty big boulders sticking up a few inches but i don't even feel them......

    I can defiantly see the advantage a trip edge would have, I have only a couple dirt drives and early in the year or in the spring the full trip blows but it is what it is and I deal with it.

    Looks you should be getting more snow over the weekend, we may or may not depending on who's lie you choose listen to.

    BTW I agree chaining up does sucks and that's why I drive Fords.......... :laughing::laughing:
