    I know this has been discussed before in other, older threads but instead of replying to one of them i decided to start a new thread and see what everyone does while plowing. (since there are alot of new members since the last time a thread like this came up)

    Do you ever listen to music or do you have to concentrate on plowing?

    What kind of music do you listen to?

    I usually am thinking too much about plowing to have the music on really loud especaially when i have to keep backing into traffic. If it does occur to me to put the radio on its usually some "mix" station that plays everything. Most of the time if its a big long storm i will take all my cds that i make from downloading music and play them. I like to listen to anything but rap while plowing but its usually rock or yes i'll admit it some country.

    I always listen to music, plowing gets boring, 6 cd's in the changer and anything but country and sloww music. Joel
  4. Got to have the radio on while plowing (on low, just loud enough to hear the music but low enough to hear outside the truck). Allman Brothers, Van Halen, BB King, Clapton to name a few selections.

    Slow music puts me to sleep after a while, its usually rock but I still like country because it talks alot about life.

    Usually it depends. As the night wears on i need music thats faster to keep me awake. Or i catch something and that scares the crap out of me. Country, some rap, and all types of rock. :D :D

    I try to keep the radio on. I listen to all types of music, but while plowing, rock is the way to go. Any type of song with a good beat that makes you want to hit stuff. Metallica,ACDC, Kid rock.

    Most of the time it gets interupted buy the nextel radio/cell phone, too often to enjoy. I would get more done if they would leave me alone.

    wow, I was surprised to hear so many say country. I have my Ipod hookid up in the truck with plenty of country on it, plus I have my Cd's as back up and the radio as well. If I can't find anything i'm in the mood for with all that then i'm SOL!

    While plowing during the day it's usually country and rock. At night i just turn it up. Also I've found that singing keeps me up too

    If its still snowing I listen to WJR they have traffic and weather on the 8s.Traffic in metro Detroit while its snowing is a bi**h. These people all seem to want to go outside when its snowing. When I am plowing no radio,window down and paying close attention to any noise the truck will make.

    I'm constantly changing my music around. I will go from Counting Crows to Rage Against The Machine to Hank Williams Jr.
    One of my favorite plowing cds is Blood Sugar Sex Magic from the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
